The gallardo looks like more like a victim of mischief. Maybe a case of someone throwing a stone or a stone flying out from under the wheels of the vehicle ahead. Also the location at which the car is left standing raises a lot of questions.

Why has the owner left the car parked un attended after the accident . With a minor incident such as a stone hitting accidentally, he wouldnt have left the car behind(or was the owner himself taking the picture). Maybe the incident happened elsewhere and not at the location where the photo was taken. Maybe the car broke down and for some reason when the owner was not around, some miscreant damaged the car .

The stone flying out from under the wheels of the vehicle ahead can't be so big to damage the car so much .
The option of Mischief can't be ruled out yet !

I wouldn't rule that out so fast. I've seen a brick caught between the rear wheels of a truck being thrown quite a distance.

This is typical of a pedestrian hit where the head hits the windshield. My friend was driving down valkeshwar slop and whilst talking on the phone and a pedestrian desided to cross right in front of his speeding car, as the pedestrian was perpendicular to the car only his head hit the windscreen and cracked it without anyother part of the car. The head injury in this case may be bad which why the dirver may have taken the victim to the hospital in another mode of transport to avoid blood stains in his own car so he left it behind. This is exactly what my friend did so I think could be the case here as well as it seems from the pictures.

The car seems to be parked outside the Samrat hotel in Delhi, where the Lambo showroom is.

Its a slow slung car. The pedestrian will experience a short flight in the air and will land on the screen. The car does not need to be too fast for it. Even 30-40 kmph is enough to launch a pedestrian in air.

Anyways lets wait and see what actually happened.

True, but it will atleast hit (touch) the pedestrian at bumper or bonnet first. Whether the impact will be substantial in that case at bumper/bonnet is the question.

Is the body of Lambo strong enough to surge a body in air without leaving a dent is worthwhile pondering.

Damn. That looks like real bad. That would cost more than a complete small hatch.

P.s i have seen the yellow and the red lambos race on Lodhi road a year or two back.

Guys just a wild guess, the driver would not have snapped his seat belt and a Hard brake to avoid the speed breaker and his head could have banged into the windshield.

Whaaaat are we talking of a driver with a head, the size of a buffaloes head ?

Looks more like a classic case of vandalism.

No matter what was the cause of the damage, it is sad to see such a nice car getting damaged and yeah, it will cost a bang for the owner (might be a small change ... indeed).
