Oversteer seems a little unlikely because of the AWD, maybe he lifted off mid bend at high speed & it snapped into oversteer.

It is not Sanjay Dutt's car.

@ ab1xlr8 - Chances of it being the same care is 99.99999%. I would really faint and fall of my chair if this is the "SECOND" LP 640 in "Mumbai" or even in "India" which crashed, in such a manner !

They are 2 different LP640 as you can see in the 1st picture the 2 front wheels are missing and front is OK & in the above picture the front wheels are present and front is totally smashed.

Did you faint ???

Hi gowda79,

Luckily I did not. But hey - I just checked the pictures once more and I feel it is the SAME LP640.

My reasons :

Check pictures No.1, 2 and 7 uploaded by Brabus E V 12 and then compare it with the picture uploaded by ab1xlr8 you will notice, both the cars have only their "LEFT" wheel intact(well not exactly intact, but it is there). The "RIGHT" wheel is not present in any of the pictures.

A pity never the less.

even if it is completely restored, I wonder how much moolah went into it.
Plus the biggest question, If done in India Who did it?

Yeah, the bigger issue is that there are hardly any roads where you can enjoy these cars in India. It is mostly about arriving at club, hotel. Those who prefer the driving experience have plenty of toys parked overseas. Forget the rich show off kids, what about the poor kids who in Swifts and Verna?!

They were not supposed to be sleeping on the pavement.

That I completely agree with. Circumstances, and being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Just a sad case of someone learning the limits of the vehicles. In my opinion, that should be tried on a track. There is a fine line between traction and control, and loss of control.

This is just so sad. Hope the driver got out ok. I did read in some tests that the LP640 was a bit tricky over the limit.
