Yes there is space to work around the handbrake but I dare not use it because I can never drive the car with one hand. Due to the thick wheels, stiff suspension , fat tyres and a less active power steering wheel , I need to operate the wheel with both my hands.

That's pretty nice.
What pressures do you maintain on the tyres?

The LP has sort of a sleepy AWD that seems to wake up rudely and suddenly. When you push it, theres tons of grip, then some more grip, and then without warning, it's off. Keeping both hands on the wheel = strongly recommended

@ecks
Nice angles on the pictures, you've done well. If photography does interest you try signing up for a crash-course of some sort and get some tips, you might discover an untapped talent =)

The sad thing is, I know this idot :| he is a buddy of mine. He loves exotic cars like Karan here. Although most ppl don't know that even though he hit 219mph on public roads, he had 15 guys down there along the whole stretch to make sure there are no other cars around.. although I still think it was quite foolish.

By the way he is much older than 19yrs (dont know where you got that from). He was cuaght 4 days after the video was up on youtube, its not easy to hide the only green LP640 in Arizona.

hi,
Congrats on the king of the hypercars...
few questions if you dont mind me asking...
1. how does it run on indian fuel, any special additives or 97 octane sufficient?
2. service? flown down from DXB?
3. options chosen?
In case 've missed these details in your thread, please point me in the right direction as i haven't perused the whole thing.
Thanks

p.s. - tried the launch control yet? :P

I have requested a professional photographer to help me out with new pictures of the car but I am still working on the video. Just got free from exams , so I am focusing my energy on doing something productive . Will get cracking on the video bit in a day or two max.

1. how does it run on indian fuel, any special additives or 97 octane sufficient? Answer - It has been re-programmed from the factory to run on Indian fuel. Service tech people say that both 91 and 97 are good , but once we use either one , we need to stick to it. So I go for 97 octy.

2. service? flown down from DXB? Answer - Service is done by Patel motors/Auto's in Delhi as Lamborghini has collaborated with them for service related things

3. options chosen? Answer - Options range from interior color / stitching / piping options to Carbon Composite brakes , to E gear , Silver hermera's ( Now getting Black hermera's) and full carbon package (which includes all interior fittings in carbon + engine cover in carbon and also glass engine bonnet) etc.
In case 've missed these details in your thread, please point me in the right direction as i haven't perused the whole thing.
Thanks

p.s. - tried the launch control yet? :P Answer - Not yet brother. Clutch is only good for 3 LC's before it needs replacement. Gonna try it some time though

that's nice...it makes it infinitely more usable than having a rare high octane brew that you have to ration.
the black rim/ orange body combo will look killer, sorta like a 'lp640 superleggera'.
OUCH.... LC is expensive !!
'm sure a clutch can buy you a mid size sedan ?? lol
