Exclamation Crash on Expressway!

Drove down to Lonavala on friday an on my way back noticed a smashed up Ford Ikon at the hinjewadi police station..........
Well the wierd thing is that it was very familiar.........
Not trying to start up any rumors here........ but it looked a lot like this one here......


Now i dint have the time to stop, cuz there were cops there........but i did manage to slow down an take a look........
* Red and green stickers matched
* Tires and wheels matched
* colour of car matched........
now i did tell dippy that i'll go down there on sunday armed with my camera.........when i did go there........ it wasn't there!!!

Anybody know anything more to dismiss this or to clear the picture??

I may sound slightly stupid here, but what's your point? Whose car is this?

Guys,

The car is practically finished. He has an estimate of 5.5lacs from the company. Use your imagination. Rocam is gonna post some pics and details soon.

I remember Viper and Rocam complaining about the Ford's braking efficiency against the power it delivered during the race with RTech's TDi...
This could be one of the reasons IMO...

Glad to know he is safe..!
