Saw a KL08 registered Lexus badged Land Cruiser this morning on NH47 near Kalamassery.

Was moving sedately, but picked up speed, when I was about to click.

Are Lexus land cruisers pricier than Toyotas?

The owner of this Gallardo sure seems to be enjoying it to its fullest. Spotted at Avenue Regent by a friend a few hours ago. This is the same one which reached Kerala today, right?

I guess this guy have a thing about acquiring exotics and crashing it soon after. Remember, his Bentley had a very bad fate in his hands.

Money must be funny in a rich mans world.

The Bentley was totalled and hence it became known, even the Ferrari had a few dents and crashes here and there. Apparently he always drives it with the Manettino set to "Race"

His 430 and S class is now parked at his apartment, the Fezza with a busted clutch and the S with busted bumpers (front and rear).

Now for the R8 to arrive

I know it's his money and car and he could burn it all away to glory and still laugh. But isn't this rash driving endangering others in the road? I guess money can't buy you a sense of responsibility.

+1 that.
Got to admit that it is to watch helplessly as someone rips apart these beauties, one piece at a time. Still the larger concern is about safety of general public with such (dare I say) idiots on the road.

I guess his past history with exotics are proof enough of his driving skills/ sense of responsibility. God be with the unsuspecting guy crossing the road/ riding his bike knowing nothing about 1 tonne+ projectiles hurtling at them at break-neck speeds.

Money can't buy culture. His response clearly showed what kind of a below decent class he really belongs to. I guess he would eat his own words if he ever got seriously injured in his so called super drive and by the way things are going, he is just asking for that!
And the statement 'they all live because of us'..who is this guy? The world would be a better place without him in our roads as a matter of fact.
I guess we should not waste our discussion in the forum of such people. Lets move on to better things then.
And his black R8 is soon to be delivered to him right? I think we can reserve a space in the Super Car crashes thread we have here, to see that go to pieces soon.
