Where and how did this happen? Just hope the passengers are safe.
I don't think anything can be used from this car.
So we've seen burning Nanos. Never thought I'd see a Range Rover Inferno

All cars burn --- but faulty wiring is a common fire cause, and I'd agree that it would be very disappointing to find that in a Range Rover.

I wonder what cars have fire-resistant interior fabrics, and what cars don't? Just a side-thought.

Report: the supercharged grey M3 which belongs to a fellow member spun out of control at the haji ali curve this afternoon and crashed. I was on the other side of the road and all I heard was squealing of tyres and a loud bang. The sound itself was quite terrifying and on going closer spotted the very notorious M3 with damaged bumpers, lights and front fenders.

The car was not driven by insideman (who wasn't at the spot) afaik but by some other person in his 20's. Within a very short duration both the boys collected the damaged bumpers and panels, stuffed them in the car and drove off leaving a pool of fluid at the accident spot.

I did not think it was appropriate to click snaps so no visual evidence from my side.

That might create more damage than the body work!

Same story with Bachchan's ex-Murcielago LP640.

In that case, the damages seemed a far lot serious.

I guess its more than just a new front bumper replacement situation. Speaking of myself i would never let a Potential buyer take my car off alone or with his friends, in your case with the friends.

The Balboni was crashed by the owner and not some potential buyer.

The Lp640 was sold by A.B. to A.P. in Pune and then it was sent to Exclusive Motors Delhi to sell off. That is when a potential Buyer was given the car to TD and he crashed the car and its a Total loss now.

Please do see the car again..it has oil dripping down and not washer fluid.

Guys at least from an exterior look the car is not crashed or heavily damaged..its just that both bumpers have taken a knock and can be fixed easily.

I know that, mate. I said ex-AB's car cos I don't think not many know whom the car was sold to later and is more famous as AB's car.

So I guess AP got his Aventador from EM and not Lambo Mumbai?

Also, I too think the Balboni was not driven by the owner but someone who had put a downpayment to buy the car. The transaction wasn't done yet when he wrecked it.

I remember reading a statement from the company's spokesperson with whom the car was registered.

In that case yes its more famous as AB's car but in the context to the crash, AB has nothing to recover as it was sold way before. I just felt the ones going through the page would be confused and a clear picture of who owns the car last be mentioned.

Some say he exchanged the 640 for the 700 and Exclusive Motors gave a better deal.

The person driving was the second owner and he had paid 40% of the agreed price. The car was still on the First owners name and would be transfered once the full payment was recieved but unfortunately the car met with the accident. The car was parked at the second owners farm house and his parents were not aware of him purchasing the car. The purchase or transaction was done via Exclusive Motors.

Guess we were too hasty in making that list, add one more.

Kerala's only CGT Speed totalled last night, yeap you guessed it, while a joyride. He was in a hurry to buy some fruits, so drove into a fruit shop
