Correction. That is Pune's one and only LP640 . The fun thing about this car is that the owner doesnt use reg. plates but has painted the no. on the body itself.

Its not paint those are little vinyl stickers. Its pretty cool actually, very subtle. I will really try and get some interior pics soon when I am back to Pune.

Now that's a rare and fairly tasteful job - lovely GL, those look like 22s!

If memory serves me right , that is the LP640 brought down on the EPCG scheme a.k.a Taxi car. So since his car is yellow and he is using black numbers , he is serving the Taxi code. So yes , his LP640 is technically a Taxi as per Indian laws.

That must have saved the buyer (mr. builder i guess) enough to buy another lambo/ferrari

Hopefully he adds an Aston Martin or a F430 to his stable. The owner has an excellent choice in cars with the Audi A8, SL500, Range Rover etc..

Yes, that is correct just like the Ferrari 575M which was brought down as a taxi on yellow plates.

I think he already owns an F430, this one can be seen roaring around frequently in the area where this guy lives., preferably sundays early morning.

Been seeing a Seat Ibiza around Hinjewadi since the past few days.

It's red in color and is running with European regn. plates. Saw a 40'ish guy driving it. No pics.

Would love to see that Ferrari and LP around sometime. The exhaust notes are to die for.

Sorry for the lack of knowledge but is it a hatch with big 'S' logo on front grill? Just spotted one such on Pashan-Baner link road. I guess it is the same you have mentioned here.

Yep. Same thing unless there's another one running around. Look for the Euro plates.

Seat Ibiza!!? Really? Wonder what it's doing here? I've often wondered why VW didn't introduce Seat's cars here, especially after the mess Skoda has made of their reputation.
