There are different versions of the story in different newspapers. According to Malayala Manorama, he was with his wife and kids and the breath analyzer test revealed that he was drunk. He was then asked to go to the police station which he refused to do because the police station was "not good enough to park his multi-crore car". The police tried to remove the car keys which he did not allow. Then the lady S.I. got into the driver's seat with him in passenger seat. At this point he asked his family to get out of the car and locked himself up in the car with the lady S.I.

That is even sad news. Our one and only Aston going back for repair even before she could burn the roads in KL?

Saw this Hummer H3 at Penta Menaka shopping center. I think it was mentioned somewhere earlier?

Nooooooooooooooo!

Sterling Grey with those exact wheels have been my dream on an E66 7er. God, why you no give me this?

If it's from Thrissur, I believe it belongs to the same genius who wrecked Nisham's GT Speed.

Scorcher...I heard this Lambo is the Bicolore edition? Or did he just paint/wrapped the normal/base 550-2 to make it look like the original Bicolore like this:

(http://www.lamborghini.com/en/models/special-and-limited-editions/gallardo-bicolore/gallardo-lp-550-2-bicolore/overview/#!slide/37)

Are those alloys in the site limited only to the Bicolore edition? And I think the engine cover, is that glass or something else?

No it's not, it's THE exact car I posted, mate.

Yes, the roof and engine lid has been wrapped in gloss black now. The Bicolore's A-pillar and tail end too will be black, it's not so on this car.

Also, Bicolore comes ONLY in the LP560 variant.

That's what I thought as well, until I noticed this in Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamborg...lardo#Bicolore) but in the site I think it only showed LP560. But if you copy the link I sent and paste in IE, it takes you to the LP550 version (if you click on it, it takes you to the LP560 version, not the 550..not sure why)

And is this a manual or the lousy e-gear one?

That must be some sort of an error, AFAIK the Bicolore is ONLY available in LP560, not 550 or 570.

This car is an e-gear. Although not as cutting edge as a twin-clutch box, it's not exactly lousy. I kind of adore the single clutch in the Lambos cos the jolt it delivers each time you shift. It's dramatic like nothing else. Though it can be a pain in the bottom at city speeds and while parking.

The Gallardo which has gone to Cochin, is the demo car of the Mumbai dealership. The roof and engine cover have been wrapped in gloss black. The wrap looks quite cheap when seen from up close IMO. The parts could have been painted in the same shade instead of the wrap; it would look better according to me.

The Bicolore can be bought in 550-2 guise just in the States, but Asian and European Bicolores were always 560-4.

I am wondering where did you get to see the car as youve not liked the wrap job so much.

Anyway the painted wheels and wrap is a personalized option chosen by the buyer. So waiting to see the car on the road is what I will do before giving an opinion.
