Default Pics : Red Ferrari 360 Modena in Mumbai (ex-Sachin Tendulkar's)

Hi Guyz...got a mail with these fotos saying that it's Sachin inside the Car. Don't know if it's true, but anyways the photos were taken in the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.





cheers

Thanks Gaurav...I was just lucky to get the fotos thro mail!

Guyz..This is what I heard about Sachin's Ferrari-
It is not a Gift From Ferrari/FIAT/Schumaker.
This was part of the package he got from FIAT for endorsing their brand in India. Do u remember the FIAT ADs with Sachin & the Palio S10? It was for that.
The Car Gift thing will work out as such a BIG AD Campaign for FIAT. Didn't it?
Also I guess if the Import Duty had to be paid then FIAT would have done that.

I'm not a big fan of his...but still please don't badmouth him...afterall he deserves credit for what he's done to Cricket as a an excellent Player.

obviously the 360 is not a gift. Fiat and Sachin called it a "gift" since they wanted to evade duties. So they called it as a gift for breaking some record. You cannot declare a gift / prize after somebody breaks a record. It has to be announced prior to accomplishing it. If that was the case, then there's no duty incurred.

Since he was given the 360 as a part of the payment, he was liable to pay the duties. The "gift" was just an excuse to evade duties.

No doubt about that. He's an excellent cricketer. But he's taking undue advantage of it. Waive duty / Waive registration / Free VIP registration / Free petrol (dont know if he asked for it) / Free Land. What next???

yes V12 I agree that Sachin shouldn't have misused his position to get Tax benefits....but what I felt was that he shouldn't be treated(badmouthed) like just another politician who usually get these benefits...
..anyways it is just a irony that some Life saving drugs do not enjoy the kind of tax Exemption that a Superstars Ferrari enjoys!!

..It happens only in India!!

Boss, if you are in business doesn't anyone claim tax benefits or tax breaks all the time. Its upto the government to decide whether or not to give a tax break. He has every right to ask. Don't tell me none of you'll have asked for a tax break or ...

Pure hypocracy.

No one is a saint when it comes to Income tax. I'm not pointing fingers but people cheat with medical bills, housing rental receipts, LTA whatnot.

Just because Sachin was given a Ferrari doesn't mean he has no right to appeal to the government for a tax break.
