LP640 is the latest version of the murcie , LP means longitudinal rear , which means position of the engine , 640 means 640 bhp , hence the name

LP stands for 'Longitudinale Posteriore', which in simple words means 'longitudinally-mounted' engine.
The '640' represents power produced by this V12 engine ( 642 PS as per specs ).

Just got news that the LP640 has been sent back to the "company" till the rains are over since the are gets flooded. Seen the RR Phantom, Conti GT and the Cayman S in covers today.

Couldnt resist posting a pic of a white LP640

@v16 - DJ's make a LOT of money! Maybe not by being resident DJs, but surely from their gigs. Aqeel, Akhtar and Suketu regularly play in Dubai (at least once every 2-3 weeks). AFAIK, they get Dhs 10k per show (INR ~1.15 lacs) on top of other perks. And this is just 1 night that we are talking here. DJ's play EVERY night! So imagine the money involved.

I think you are oevrestimating their worth. IF they are as you claim getting 10K Dhs per night once every week (which may not be the case) that makes it roughly 62,40,000/- which is, IMHO highly overestimated. Yes they might have made a crore or in a particular year but that should not be taken as their average earniing.
Anyways why are you and me debating on their earnings man
Best of luck to them and I hope they earn more.
I had just mentioned is as i felt the figure not right.
Chalo lets see what other bollywood guys have.
Ive seen Himmesh Reshammia in a Black 7 Series, a 740 Li to be exact.

Actually they do i clearly remember it being mentioned in an interview in a local paper with akbar sami, stating when compared to other popular dj's that him, aqeel and suketu have the same rate a lac which has probably gone up a bit by now since this interview featured almost a year back. Your probably right while generalizing on dj's but as far as "celebrity dj's" are concerned i guess they do pack quite a bit enough for a few flashy rides

They probably make more money from their remix albums than by dj'ing for the entire year...Bt thats till like 1-2 crores a year, which isnt enough to buy an exotic car. You need to make more than 10 crores a year to own a car like an S-class that costs 1 crore.
