Accident took place at 4 in the morning under the Vakola flyover. Owner was taking a right turn under the flyover towards the Hyatt and he lost control and went over the divider.
Driver is perfectly fine and had no injuries at all.

P.S: Its the same car whose pics I had put up when it had landed in Mumbai.

Did the accident happen due to inability of the driver to control the 'high power' of the car.

Should Maruti must train its SX4 customers since it is the high power offering from them? Or what is the limit of 'high power'? 150BHP? 50 lakhs?

MH-01-KA-4545 is the number on LP640.

Don't tell me you are planning to fit the V12 into your Gypsy and tear the Western ghats apart

BTW Lamborghini made a pathetic offroader called the LM. Crude beast, but what a V12!!

I initially thought that the roads were wet. Its not. Well looking at the front, looks like he did jump the median and hit the pavement on the other side of the road.

Surprising that no one in T-Bhp caught it for so long. If manishasrani had been in Mumbai he would have had the fotos out pronto.

If its Sanju's car, how come it didn't come out in the press in India.

Did a google and can only see t-bhp post with the relevant information !!

Good to know that the driver was unhurt.
But the financial loss must've hurt the driver big time. No matter, how deep the pockets may be.

Glad to know he is fine. Was he drunk at that time or just doing some car racing stuff which i had heard goes on in night time in mumbai?
i saw that thread of yours and its a real shame the car ended like this.

Sir i beg to differ on this. No matter how rich you are but a loss is always a loss(thankfully only financial in this case). For Eg - Even if you got 100 rupees in your pocket and you lose 30 you do feel the pinch of losing 30 irrespective of the fact you still got 70 in pocket!

Thats some serious damage! I guess he blasted down that straight and carried too much speed to take the turn.

phew for a minute I thought it was Ecksreturns who got into an accident then I read the thread title completly!

But gosh is this bad! When did it happen?

If its on the WE highway I think the car was either coming or going to China house, I have seen it there on several occasions. Could be a case of drunken driving but its best not to jump to such conclusions.

I had read somewhere that the car was up for sale probably after being repaired?
