Police stop India’s only Ferrari F430 Scuderia supercar: Let it go after taking pictures [Video]
India is becoming a hotbed of performance cars and in the major cities, spotting a supercar or performance car is not a very rare instance. However, there are still many supercars that remain exotic and exclusive on the Indian roads. Here is such a vehicle that gets stopped by the Mumbai Police!
The popular Dubai-based Mo Vlogs, who is currently in India has put up a new video of his Mumbai adventures in an exotic Ferrari. The car here is a Ferrari F430 Scuderia and it is the only example of the model in India! Mo Vlogs moves around in the streets of Mumbai in awe as he looks at the haphazard traffic and even a bulldozer on the public roads. In many countries, such construction vehicles are not road legal and have to be transported over a flatbed truck or by other means. This ensures that the slow-moving vehicles do not choke the road.

The video further shows that a group of Mumbai Policemen around the Ferrari F430 Scuderia and the owner of the vehicle talking to the cops. After a few minutes, the cops let go of the vehicle. Mo Vlogs later says that the cops came them after they stopped at the roadside to click a few pictures and take videos of the surroundings when the cops came. He also says that the cops do not issue a fine or challan to the driver and let the vehicle go after taking a picture with the Ferrari. Well, the footage of the same has not been added to the uploaded video.
Mo Vlogs continues his rendezvous on the Mumbai streets in the same Ferrari in the rest of the video. The Ferrari F430 Scuderia is quite special and was launched to take on the vehicles like Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. The F430 Scuderia was the performance version of the supercar and was lighter by around 100 kg than the regular version of the vehicle. It was also more powerful but was powered by the same engine as the regular version.
In the F430 Scuderia, the 4.3-litre V8 engine produces a maximum power of 503 Bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 471 Nm at 5,250 rpm. Ferrari churned out more power by using modified parts. They revised the air intake of the Scuderia completely while the exhaust system was also revamped to increase the power. The engine compression ratio was increased using the ion-sensing knock-detection system. The Ferrari F430 Scuderia can do 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 319 km/h.
Exotic vehicles like supercars and superbikes gather a lot of attention on the roads because of their design, colours and the exhaust note. In the past, the police forces from various states have issued fines to such vehicles for rash driving and even seized the vehicles. However, there was no fine issued to the Ferrari F430 Scuderia owner this time. A picture with the exotic Ferrari and maybe a warning to owners sufficed this time.
