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?
