I have seen a yellow Gallardo in Bombay being followed by guards in a Toyota Prado. They were making sure that no one is following the Lamborghini and were not aloowing anyone to come between them and the car. If I'm not mistaken, it was Abhay Deol driving it and the registration was DL-XX-1.

I don't think it would be Abhay Deol driving it since it's a Delhi car & was in Mumbai for a short period of time with the escort Prado's. The same person who owns this Yellow Gallardo also owns the ex-Bhushan Kumar Red Murcielago Barchetta.

It was some young guy with his younger brother sitting next to him. I was later told by my cousin that the car I saw belongs to Abhay. I dont even know how Abhay looks actually. I have a video of that car, it very noisy. Who is this guy who owns both the cars? Seems to be from juhu as I saw the Lambo parked a few times near Arogya Nidhi hospital. Very near to this location there is a black RX-7 parked in a building belonging to someone who also owns a red/black Mustang.

This guy & his brother are owner's of a large land-broking firm in Delhi & most of their cars are here only. The Gallardo was down in Mumbai last year for some time along with the escort car & is now back in Delhi. Last week of December I had spotted him ripping the car in the afternoon in the GK area of Delhi.

Thats a tremendous achievement- to drive nearly the entire length of India! How did it cope with our pothole infested National Highways, with its low ground clearance? Is he planning to drive it back, I had seen this awesome machine a few times on the streets of Chandigarh.

I remember seeing this m6 a few months back in chennai. Looked really cool though. Would have been a dream to drive it from ch to tn.

Whosoever owns this M6 and driving it round in india earns my full respect. It takes real guts to put your exotic beauty on road conditions. I mean he must havent got the shiny highways all the time. I make sure i get my car checked and washed even after a small trip back and forth to delhi as i get to feel like my car is performing 10 times less then it should. I mean hats off how he managed to take his "car" around india.
