Damn. I feel really sorry for that Lambo! :(
Blame it on the driver! This beast is no more in production and if people keep crashing this Iconic Lamborghini, it'll surely become extinct!

Scorcher,

Is this the same green one you posted in the Supercars & Imports : Kerala thread?

It looks like only the rear windscreen is broken? Strange. Are you sure it was an accident? There can be morons who'd purposely go and damage them when they see nice exotics on the road.

When Octavia was launched, and someone gave my friend's car a healthy scratch using their key which ran all over the left side, right from the headlight to the rear C pillar.

I remember reversing my santro into a fire hydrant. My rear windscreen broke and that was it, the rear hatch door was intact. Could be a similar case with the mini or was probably nudged at the rear by a taller vehicle?

Have a closer look, guys.

You'll see that the the lower portion of the bumper (the plastic part where the parking-sensors are placed) is damaged too.

The accident involved a teenager on "high spirits" riding a Dio. The Cooper's brakes proved a tad too effective and the Dio's rider could'nt do much other than going head first through the rear windshield.

Thanks Suhaas!!!

I was looking at it around 4 am (t-bhp addiction on a Friday nite?!! ) that might have caused it.

Yes it seems to be the same car. I saw some other minis too with MH 04 FF registration. I think this car was being taken to different states for showcase.
