But then shouldn't it be called 'Flying Mur' like the Bentley Flying Spur? Besides, those wings are just for show because the owner doesn't have a pilot license.

Just look at some of the reponses aka heated arguments.

PS: On a serious note, i guess the guy has shown his protest against each and every car on the road making its way to this thread.

I don't think Mayavi is serious. He's only being sarcastic cause a lot of decent cars are being paraded here as whacky. Even I've clicked some Beemers, Jags and an H2 with 26" rims. So weird no? I'll post them soon.

the 'swift that tore into chequered flag' surely is wacky.. doesnt matter if its a paint-job or stickering. If it is a paintjob - the guy who did it, is darn too good at it.

Red Swift- not wacky! (except for the sticker work)
White swift- Wacky? What wacky?

Uno- Now thats something we call weird and wacky. What was the owner thinking? Might be highly practical with cubbyholes all around the car!
Exactly. The same thing I wanted to say.

1.



What was the owner thinking!!? Probably he thought that a transparent engine cover makes the car go fast! A transparent cover in Indian weather?? First of all it will leak due to our weather damaging the engine and second thieves will easily break it and steal engine parts.
2.


Loot at this... black roof on a red car, that too cloth one. Wackiest of em all.

3.



A yellow color car? What is the world coming to... and whats with the protrudsion at the rear? That is not the right place to put a wing and he probably doesn't know that he is increasing drag.
Also look at the wheels... front alloys are different from rear one.

PS: Sorry Rehan, too tempting to let it pass.
extremly sorry to say you and these pictures do not belong here mate. . . .these are exotics. (sorry mods am going off topic here) and they are meant to be WHACKY and the thread is MOD JOBS.

kindly read and post

cheers

But isn't it funny that Lamborghini installed a Vaccuum cleaner just behind the driver side window? Probably it is there to clean the car after a spin on the dirty roads, but still why install it permanently when you can keep it at home and save weight?

I rarely point fingers at other people and for saying that these pictures look amazing to me and not at all wacky.Further,I would like to believe that all supercars try to maintain a healthy balance of "lift" and "drag" using both front air intake and rear spoiler.My knowledge is extremely limited on this subject and correct me if I'm wrong but I presume that without a set of meaningful spoiler setup a supercar will fly off the ground and then crash after attaining speeds that would "lift" the front wheels of the ground..
Please refer to this link
AutoZine Technical School - Aerodynamics
Just for some information: the front air intake in most race/super cars behave as a spoiler to create "drag" and so does the rear spolier.However the rear spoiler is usually ajustable to change in between drag and lift..

Thank you Mayavi, this guy took the bait!

By the way, thanks for the info, we did not know all this, probably this is the reason why we see all the other cars with contrapments which are not vacuum cleaners or clothes lines. They do have a purpose!
