That's because of short circuit due to water ingress. You can see the headlights on for the orange R8 (lights on the Q7 doors). You can read about a similar experience shared by GTO below.

A look up on the registration number says that at least one R8 belonged to VW themselves. They are registered in their names and I hear that they were used for "media" purposes. It is possible that they left their cars outside and customer's cars inside.

Damage looks serious. Hope no one was injured.

A Merc G55 driven by Tollywood/sandalwood actors / son of some influential industrialist as per TV has crashed into an Omni on midnight at South End Circle in bangalore. Here's a screenshot from the news

The news also says they were under influence of drugs when the crash happened.

Saw this parked on the corner near the Patalamma street at 0900. Someone was in the driver seat and a couple of police speaking to him.
