Default Lambo Murcielago roadster in bangalore

Dunno if somebody's already posted this, but my crew spotted this red Lambo Murcielago roadster in bangalore under KA registration. Will soon post the video here.

Awesome, Bangalore is the place to find the exotics! Infact my manager was in San Francisco for a long time and he was telling me he had not spotted the lambo there as easily he could spot it here. Way to go. Waiting for the video..

Maybe he was just plain unlucky. He had a Toyota RAV 4 back there and was planning to get it on TR but then he didnt bring it down, guess its coz of the shipping and the amount of fuel it consumes!

hellwrath the toyota rav4 does not consume too much fuel. it should give an average of 6or 7 at the minimum. like akshay said it would be a LHD so the car would not be allowed. this would be the main reason of not getting it back and no other reason.

Akshay/Speedy,

Guess so, I never bothered to ask him why he didn't. But forgive my ignorance, why isn't an LHD allowed? Any specific reason?

like akshay mentioned that india is primarily a RHD country and due to the high rate of accidents and difficulty to drive a LHD car the government has taken this disision. also that a LHD car is cheaper than a RHD car is some countries so importing them would be cheaper and that would mean less revenue for the government and also it would affect the local car manufactures. this is my take on the rule. personally i liked it when LHD cars were allowed to be imported.
a LHD car can be brought down on carnet. that means it is here on bond no duty has to be paid and the car has be shipped out within 6 months time. there is also no need to register the car.
