The first Ferrari LaFerrari in India has been spotted for the first time at Parx Super Car Show. The car was being driven along a dirt road – which is a bit shabby, even by India’s standards – but by the looks of things it had up to eight bodyguards going everywhere it went and making sure nobody got close.
After the parade, India’s first LaFerrari was put on display in a prominent place in the middle of a field with fences all around it. Only a handful of select viewers were allowed to get close and have a look inside the car. Julia Roberts got less attention when she was filming Eat Pray Love in India!
India is one of the world’s biggest car markets, but high-end luxury and exotic cars account only for a tiny portion. There are huge import taxes imposed of cars like Ferrari LaFerrari, which is why the owner of this car, businessman Gautam Hari Singhania, used a trick called ATA Carnet which allows the vehicle to enter India for 12 months only.
We wouldn’t be surprised if Singhania sends the car back after 12 days. India’s total lack of driving rules is legendary, and their roads are best suited for lorries and mopeds. I mean, this “parade” was held on a dirt road. What does that tell you?!
