Honestly speaking the Replica looks as good as the original Elemento. No shame in claiming bragging rights but he could come down on the price tag a little bit though

Yes Anand, this car was shown in Asianet news yesterday!. Said this cost 16 crores and only one in India among 20 cars produced and transported to malapuram from Delhi at a cost of 2 lakh. I am not sure these are right facts.

If they claim it to be original, they'll have to pay the proportionate road tax. I guess Kerala government would get a considerable breathing space with this road tax, considering the condition of the Treasury! I'm sure Malappuram RTO is already looking forward to that DD

If we know the registration number, I think MVD site shows the tax details. So we can confirm if it really paid the tax for a 16 Crore car.

Its a replica for sure. I have seen the cesto elemento in Topgear driven by Richard Hammond. Its way different than this when interiors are concerned, simply because the cesto doesn't have a dashboard , It doesn't have seats like this. It was telecased in season 20 topgear bbc .

To the best of my knowledge, they are the second owners for this car. I think they wouldn't see a reason to re-register this car under a Kerala RTO any time soon as vehicles running on non-KL plates are ubiquitous. I believe that the owners interest in the car will fade way as soon as the crowd's interest in the car reduces .

If the owner wants others to think this is an original and not a replica, he is unlikely to continue using the regn number of his old LP560-4.

Since it is DC modified, it could get MH regn. IIRC, that used to be the only place that accepted the DC's full-scale modifications as street-legal and allowed registration of vehicles with such mods.

Well, the base car seems to be a Gallardo, and the interiors reveal its origins beyond any doubt.

What I do not get is why they make false claims, nowadays even primary school boys are more careful to tell lies as it is easy to verify most stories over the internet.

Don't want to sound rude, but this seems to ba a tasteless conversion job, even more tasteless lies and bragging, all for converting a beautiful Gallardo to a wannabe Sesto Elemento, which in turn might be the most tasteless Lamborghini ever!

Well, the media here seems to think it's the original or the owner made them believe. It's here in local newspapers and TV channels. Some of the details that was published.

1) 16cr Sesto bought from Delhi.
2) Top speed 213 kmph
3) Mileage - less than 1 kmpl

Top speed 213 kmpl? 1 kmpl fe? The guy who wrote this in media must be a maniac. How is it possible for a car so light to have a 1kmpl economy.

As far as i know the REAL Sesto Elemento is not road legal.

Why try and portray that it is the real thing ?
