360 Modena Ferrari

Red, beautiful and speedy – it was India’s one of the most discussed gifts nine years back. Today it is here in Gujarat, on the roads of India’s fastest developing city Surat.
This is the story of red Ferrari 360 Modena that was gifted to cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar by F1 legend Michael Schumacher when Tendulkar touched cricket legend Donald Bradman’s world record.
The car, most discussed due to its association with Schumacher, Sachin and due to import duty related controversies has been bought by Surat’s City Lights based construction businessman Jayesh Desai.
Desai took delivery of car from Sachin Tendulkar’s home in Bandra, Mumbai after Sachin reacted positively to his request of buying it.
“Wherever I go in this car, I am surrounded by people. It is fun to ride this car on the roads of Surat,” said happy owner Jayesh Desai.
