Yea, that site wrecked exotics is pretty killer. They had this banged up Lambo from Mumbai posted there as well. I was shocked that such beautiful cars can be crashed!

Hey guys, spotted this Beemer near my house today morning. Its front right wheel was broken off. Don't know for sure what caused it, although I guess it could have been caused by an unmarked speedbreaker that was recently put there. Sorry for the very poor quality image, I took it while on the move.

That has got nothing to do with the guys at the site, it is people from india who upload the pics. So the credit goes to the lucky(rather unlucky to see such a sight) who captured the pics.

Default S-Class Crash

This unfortunate incident, I clicked yesterday on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. I am sorry if this car is not classified as 'Super-car or Import', I only felt this thread as relevant enough.

That was a nasty crash. Hope that everyone came out unscathed.
Do you have any interior photos?
Was there any cabin intrusion ? Though i expect the cabin intrusion to be next to none.

@Aman9393 :

No I was not able to take interior snaps. Both the front airbags had deployed. There was considerable cabin cluster damage.

@ishotmydog :

I have no idea about the occupants. I did not see it happen. Just saw the car at the spot. From the looks, I judged that the driver would be safe, but the front passenger would have been hurt to some degree or other.

There was a problem with the wheel arms in the BMWs especially the 3 and some 5s. Similar thing happened to my car, but not as bad when it hopped over a speed breaker at a high speed. But BMW is aware of this problem and replaced it for free.

I believe that one belongs to the wife of an aviation company owner. They live on Altamount Road, hence the proximity to Jaslok too.
