Default Ferrari Magic India Discovery Tour Reaches Kochi

This is the first time I'm posting something in team-bhp.
But what not to begin with than the news of two specially painted Ferrari 612 Scagiliettis being driven through India. Tata Dealer RF motors had arranged for a reception at their place in Edappilly. The crowd was intense. Managed to click some pics though.

Here they are.Ferrari Magic India Discovery Tour Reaches Kochi-img_0456.jpg

The Bravo and the 500 were totally outclassed by the 612s. But someone was heard shouting FERRARIIIIIIII when the Bravo rolled in...

It's the same paintjob as it was in the beginning of the tour. Why a sudden hue and cry? It was ugly from the beginning na!

I couldn't reach Cochin.

The 500 and the Bravo are owned by FIAT. Check their registration numbers 8002 and 8003. That Bravo is the one among the five cars FIAT has been using to get ARAI approval, delight press people and attention at the AUTO EXPO.

This was on 7th. At 1 pm, the cars were at RF motors Pathadipalam...Crowds were cheering when the big roar of the V12s were heard above the noises of trucks and buses.

And as for the strange paintjob, all they seemed to care was to look different and they did. In a weird sort of way.

Forget the Ferrari name...forget everything.. tell me frankly what do you think of the way the 612 looks? Had it been not for that engine would you have loved it?

Honestly, i wont. That's why i couldn't care less about that wacky paintjob on the car.
