If the car number is DL12-CJ-1111, then based on the picture in the second post, the case becomes murkier as the owner according to VAHAN is Mr. SYED BILAL AHMED.

I think the current owner (Hyderabad guy) didn't transfer to his name yet & possibly that is the reason the dealer was successful in transferring the car ownership from previous owner (Kerala guy) to this new guy from Delhi.

Important lesson here is to transfer the car on your name after buying it or else the dealer or the previous owner can sell it to someone else.

Also, the wing though custom made, would suit the 458 better if it had the whole body installed as well. Now it looks out of place. Looks are a subjective matter & each opinion should be respected.

Exactly. Its more than what meets to our eye. Car being registered on someone else's name, close friend stealing the car and more importantly posting videos on social media after stealing.
A complex deal which fell through........

I believe this theory of 3 people stealing someone's Ferrari is just a hogwash. No one (especially a big dealer of supercars) will even take a risk of stealing someone's car and then re-sell it to someone else. Come on, it's a Ferrari - damnit! You cannot just steal such a car and sell it to someone else. It's bound to get noticed, it's bound to raise eyebrows. This is a clear case of a deal gone bad between the owner and the dealer (probably payment issues or anything). And obviously the media has probably been given a different picture to portray (we know how they like to write their stories).

To me, this all looks like a very shady deal. Probably the dealer could be innocent - his people have come to take back the car for non payment of dues. It could be anything.

Such news should be taken with a pinch of salt. This is not Gone in 60 Seconds

I absolutely agree with this.

The allegations appear too bizarre to make sense. I work as a criminal defence lawyer, and have seen some extremely unconventional cases, but this one just sounds odd - it seems there is more on the side of the supposed owner of the Ferrari that has not actually been disclosed. That being said, we all are also aware how incorrect news reports (especially about cases like these) can be.

Perhaps it would be useful to wait for more developments on the story before indulging in any sort of online-detective-scheme (including tracing owners through registration number of cars - which I believe is not allowed on the forum anyway). I realise this is no Reddit-Boston-bomber level matter, but let's keep our tinfoil hats off for now. That's just my opinion.

On a completely different note, the Team BHP newsletter's subject line reads: "Bizarre Ferrari theft in India | Used Supercars on sale!" Perhaps not the best stories to club together.

Exotic cars are very rare in number. Whereever you take it- there will always be a crowd taking pictures and posting it on their social media. Stealing an exotic car is just not possible in India. Should have gone for a mass production car where it would have been lost in the traffic. A bright red loud Ferrari- No!

The black hood looks equally appalling as well. Whoever did this tuck job on the car has a poor sense in taste. Rightly said, the Ferrari paid a price for its own crime of senseless mods. Poor, poor Enzo. One can feel for this legend.

Very fishy! It's all too similar to the antics of the BMW getting "stolen" whilst the driver took a roadside leak.
