Surely, people who can afford to buy and run cars like that have their tax affairs sorted and in the hands of serious professionals?

Not necessarily.

One of the first IT raids post demonetisation was prompted by the supposed incongruity of a Government official's son moving around in a Porsche, Ducati and Lamborghini.

Did this case get settled finally? Looks like most of the cars are registered in TN itself. Also do they have any proofs against the drivers for rash and negligent driving, except that one fellow who ride over the police man?

The Police would have probably averted one high speed race for sure. But these guys were stopped before Uthandi toll right? Usually the speeding starts after the toll and hence it would be difficult for the Police to come with genuine evidence against all of them.

The owners would have been more worried about the IT case rather than the police case.

As far as I know it looks like some of the cars may have been released as the Orange Aventador with the lemons was seen during the launch of the Aventador S in Hassan.

Has to be - All cars must have been released by now as I am sure they don't have the funds and security to guard these elephants 24/7. It will cost the Police Department lot extra to guard them, so they might have just let it go.

I just went in this stretch recently and the road before Uthandi toll (From Chennai) has a very low speed limit. I had my maps ON and some stretches had a 40 kmph limit - so, this will definitely add to the observation these guys were indeed speeding (as per the speed limits). For some reason, I chose to be sane this time, inspite of the road being not so crowded and straight enough and was cruising very close to the speed limits with the app giving me warning chimes every time I cross the limit.

A couple of kms before the toll, there were police personnel with the speed gun too and I escaped it while I saw some two & four wheelers were stopped.

Which map chimes when you exceed speed limit? Does Google map have that feature? or is it in-car map?
