Yes, those are visitors from Kottayam.

Oh yes, by the way, that garage is getting Kerala's first new generation RR Autobiography in a few days

Heard the hotelier just got himself a Lambo Gallarado LP-560. Got this pic (via BBM. Not sure how clear it is). And I am not sure if its here in Kerala or its pic is taken from the buyer's premises. Anyone has an idea?

That's the Showroom in Mumbai.

That's an LP550 RWD, the Demo Car.

Thanks for that info! If it indeed is the same car, he might have got it at a good deal. The 560 is all wheel drive right?

Yeah, that's why it's called the LP560-4. I see this car doesn't have the optional perspex engine cover, and it's a 550-2. So what you have here now is a "base-spec" Lamborghini, if you throw in the manual.

I remember reading somewhere in Autocar how the RWD is actually little more fun to drive. Anyway, its a different brand for the hotelier (AFAIK, he has the F430, 911, R8, A7, Cayenne, Jag XJ and the 650i)

That is all about to change late this month or early next when Kerala will get its first brand new 458 Italia.

Hope it sets the ball rolling

Hope so as well. And except for the 911, F430 and now this Lambo, all other cars of the hotelier are brand new right? But yes, the exotics (mainly sport cars) here in Kerala, most of them are pre-owned.

If you know the owner ask him to check as no new car has come into the country and the only 2 458's with the dealership are old stock cars. One of them is the banged car which is being fixed and both cars are unregistered.

No Abhi, this car isn't off the shelf. It was booked months prior and the production process was being tracked as well. The car is yet to reach the country.

Got to love TBHP for such inside information from sources all over the country!

Is this for a jewellery group from Thrissur? I had heard rumours about them booking a California, but maybe I heard wrong.
