Default PICS : Accident - Toppled Skoda Octavia RS

Was returning from the meet , crossing mahim church in dippy s car alongwith ported & kartik and fellow member jigarmuni called on dippy s cell ?
what could it be ?
" a toppled skoda RS (yellow colour ) "
dippy took the very next available 'u' turn and we were on our way back to town joined by f50 too now
the mishap had taken place bang opposite n.s.c.i club .
it was bad , really bad ! but to what we heard , everyone in the car was safe , no major injuries and all .
the car had hit the divider coming out of the deadly curve (around lala college ) and toppled .
dippy as ususal took some pics which i m sure he would not mind sharing on this thread .
ported suspected the reason to be alchohol (which is a major factor for night accidents ) as well as 150 bhp at the guy s disposal .
the cops were shooing everyone away , infact one of them even said , " abhi ek taxi palti hua hota tho saala kaun rukta " , which to a certain extent i thought was true .
the engine according to dippy wasn't destroyed , but the body definately was thrashed .
someone at the site mentioned it was one of the choksey 's (owner of autobahn ) driving the car .
guys please share any further info. about the same and drive carefully , as there s someone waiting at home !

Here are the pics from Dippy's cam

Your right abt who it was.. I was on my way home and stopped to see whose car it was... but this is no ordinary skoda.. the engine has (or had) been tweeked with a piggyback unit to get more bhp outa it... without changing the suspension.
About the booze aspect.... am not really sure that he drinks... but then you never know.....
Pix please DIPPY!!!

khanak actually the guy who died in the ford ikon accident at sea face was the the guy sitting next to the driver .
in the media it was said that it was the driver so as to prevent any legal action towards the driver .
the airbag i think must have been the main reason apart from the seat belt that he survived the accident .
atleast being the agent will not make a hole in mr.choksey s pocket .

This is a real sad incident indeed. This is what will be seen more often now i believe, with all these powerfull machines being offered to us. Nothing bad about them being offered just that we dont have that kinda roads for using these cars at top end speeds. Here in this case i think the major reason could have been error of judgement. Anyways whatever happened was real sad. Hope all the people that were there in the car are safe. Always Drive/Ride safe Guys.......as Manson said there is someone waiting for you at home.

->P

Does the RS come equipped with ABS? I don't recall seeing any tyre skid marks on the road, leading to the kerb. Maybe they got lost in the dark. Even if the driver got his line through the corner completely wrong, he would have panic braked to avoid hitting the kerb. Unless he was under the influence of alcohol.

RS comes with ABS. but even on an ABS equipped car...there will be some amount of tyre marks under severe braking.

True. What I was referring to was those typical long skid marks leading to impact spot, usually associated with panic braking.

The bottom line is that people are being irrisponsible with the power they have. Dont blame it on our roads.The road opposcit nsci is really good. With such power at your disposable it is often tough not to unleash it but one has to control oneself varna..................
