The lambo belongs to a close friend of mine. I can ask him to join us on one of our meets. The exhaust note is to die for.

All hail the lambo! Looks like Puneites are getting richer everyday. All that wandering around really does you some good Fibroid!

Nice Lambo, and more importantly, nice photography. Great car, but not as good as the GT500 that belongs to my cousin

I like how hollow it is. It's got the red lights shining through the front wheel arches as well. They really cut down the weight on this Gallardo.

Lol, no. Considering that it was 1st of April and from the angle that the pic was clicked, I thought that maybe it is a scaled model.

@torque - thanks for the info, man ! i saw the pics of his RR on orkut - in photos, there isnt much diff visible between dark blue and black. and the honda - yeah i just went by while entering their house - and spotted the CBR badge - thought it was 900.
but they really have a lovely collection !

@dhaval - its Amar builders opposite IIPM - 7 series, new S class are really common there. Supposedly, they have around 4-5 bmws parked in a plot in the small lane behind IIPM.

@moral - damn. that is something to lookout for. if you dont mind, PM me the owners name.

Yeah that RR is black, its the older V8 Vogue. That one has been replaced by the new dark blue. The old one had pathetic alloys, the new ones have much better ones!

This is the Lambo I spotted:

Supercars & Imports : Pune-22032008228.jpg

April fools to all those who actually believed it was a real Lambo.

Karl took a picture of this car on his humble Nokia N82. Brilliant photography there. Car contribution was by Suhail (swale84). The SLR belongs to me. More on the cars here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/770796-post16.html
