Thats very close to the M5 price range. I think the price on road with a few options would be 85ish. Now the M5 is very close to 95k on road.

Why woundnt a Lambo owner not want a M3.
M3 is smaller in size and makes for a good daily ride. The Lambo for night hangouts and weekends sounds perfect.

I think the M5 is priced closer to around 1.10 crores on-road, so about 20 - 25 lakhs difference.

@ Dipen: Hey, you may be right, I guess it's all down to personal preference!

Would you rather have an M3 and a Murcielago or an M5 / M6 and a Gallardo?

A colleague was in Amby valley when this happened. Unluckily he didn't have a camera handy.

Don't you guys think BMW did an Audi rear to this one?

...and lastly, while there were lots of nice customer cars at the event, one truly stood out, the beautiful LP640 Murcielago!

Is this a Pune car?

great report and pictures kbk 75. love the new E92 M3, i think its the best so far. did you get delivery of your car yet ?
if i am not mistaken the owner of the Lp640 owns a M5. the best combination would be M3 and the Lambo. it sufices both needs. power with everyday drivability (M3) and power with loads more ( LP640).

@ Moral it is the pune car.
