India’s triumph in the 2011 Cricket World Cup is commendable and to honour the victory, many companies and organisations have declared prizes to various members of the squad including cash rewards. But nothing beats what Indian skipper MS Dhoni is about to be gifted. A red Ferrari 599 GTO which is also called the GTO India features the colours of our national flag on the hood of the Ferrari. There is no information on who is gifting the car to Dhoni but we suspect it could be Sharad Pawar or maybe Lalit Modi. The car in question is a left hand driver version so we wonder how the whole clearance will go ahead but with Ferrari entering India very soon, service won’t be a problem for the explosive cricketer.


The Ferrari 599 GTO is reserved for just 599 clients who seek the maximum expression of high performance driving.
Powered by a 670 hp motor in a 1495kg car having a power to weight ratio of 2.23 kg/hp, the 599 GTO reaches 0-100 kmph in 3.35 second and a top speed of 335 kmph.

Make sure you turn up the volume and listen to the awesome sound produced by the Ferrari 599 GTO.
