Yes, the same.

If you remember, their F430 too had a small incident in the recent past.

@ insideman

The fluid was red in colour and i am quite certain that it was not merely headlight washer fluid. Like speedy mentioned both the bumpers have taken a beating and the left tail light too has lost its cover.

Hope to see the monster back on the streets 100% fit soon.

The red fluid is water + meth mixed with red dye. The nozzle must have come off and must have leaked a bit.

About the Bently CGT accident which happened near thripoonithura sadly the owner was not driving it.

OT:- The mini cooper from Chalakudy which met with an accident @ Ollur with a logan is slowly getting back to its old shape and glory at Hydrabad BMW. it has been taken to Hydrabad for repairs from Cochin.

I saw the Lambo Balboni crash on a very famous website that showcases crashed exotics. I was a bit surprised it didnt make it to this thread and Ive been looking for the picture put up by the other website but am unable to find it.

Speedy - How are the first and second owners going to get the problem sorted out? Part payment done...car taken for a spin and crashed.

Sad to note that the Bentley has been damaged. I remember how I was following the CGT and the F430 the night before it left Bangalore. N I was telling myself repeatedly after looking at them drag that "it just isnt right to drive those beauties that way". My fear seems to have come true. A very sad day/evening indeed!

Insideman - I am extremely sorry to read about the accident. As someone mentioned earlier, when someone says M3...I automatically picture your beauty in my head.

Any reasons why you are selling? If its not to personal/confidential.

Thats what even i was wondering. The person who bought the car and crashed, his family did not even know he had bought the car. I am guessing since the car was yet on the first owners name, he would have claimed insurance for it.

Strangely though the website carrying the image didnt mention anything about the driver losing his life.
