MS Dhoni gets a Ferrari 599 GTO India Edition
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
We are the new champions OH YES!!
The feeling hasn’t still sunk in and we have just received another fantastic blow – in a nice way. Our captain, MS Dhoni will receive a……wait for it…..Ferrari 599 GTO India edition. That is unbelievably, insanely, fantastically COOL! (Sorry, I ran short of adjectives)
This is a custom built GTO flaunting the Indian Tricolor Flag on the bonnet. Probably will be a one off as well.
For those who are not aware about this car: It is basically a road going version of the 599XX – a car that used to hold a Nurburgring lap record. Ferrari says that the 599 GTO is the fastest road car ever to be able to lap the Fiorano test circuit in 1 minute 24 seconds.
And we believe that because that monstrous V12 engine produces 670 PS with 620 Nm. It can reach 100 km/h in less than 3.35 seconds and has a top speed of over 335 km/h. It is also lighter than the normal 599 by 100 kgs.
From the pics you can see that the car is left hand drive which is going to be a bit of a problem at custom. Do we see another ‘Ferrari-Cricketer’ controversy in the making?
