There are many insistences when the tyre can burst or other issues, causing the car to go out of control. I am not saying that it happened, but just stating that its not fair blaming the guy driving the car without any facts.

I said that accidents don't just happen: they are caused by something or someone. That is not necessarily the driver of any one of any vehicle involved.

With power comes great responsibility. Driving a lambo which pumps out 670 HP , is no joke , not everyone can handle such power , a peraon needs years of driving experience.

Correct me If I'm wrong but this is the only Murcielago SV in the country isn't it? or had he just put the wing and side sticker on a regular Murcielago?

The driver must be pretty skilled and cautious to have delayed injuries to this ride for this long ! Contrary to what most think if this is the first damage incident to this particular vehicle it was in the hands of a pretty solid driver. This car was around for a few years in Delhi, 5-6 if I am not mistaken. It's pretty impressive that it stayed in one piece for a period of 5-6 years. It takes a pretty mature person to make an SV670 stay spotless for ~5 years.

I consider myself a solid driver and I doubt an SV-670 would have lasted this long in one piece in my own hands, especially in a country like India.

Isn't that like saying that it would be impressive to own a gun for five years without shooting anybody?

Disclosure: I can't keep any car unscathed, these days, even for a year or two. I'd probably get the same dents and scratches for the same reasons even if my engine got magically upgraded by an order of horsepower magnitude [Blush]

I only mention this because it looks totalled and not repairable. No one would even be able to Import a second-hand in due to that X years since production rule wouldn't allow it.

Real loss to India's Supercar collection : (.

Looking at the interiors, I didn't see any airbag leftovers.
The driver or passenger airbags would not have deployed since there was no frontal hit.

It looks more like a side hit, rear left side. What about curtain or b-pillar airbags ? Aren't these supercars equipped with various airbags ?

Its a car..accidents do happen and i am sure this was not an intentional accident by the owner.

Worst cases have been repaired..this is easy peasy, only depends if the owner wants to claim the car and repair it or just junk it. Anything can be done as long as one has a really fat wallet.

A car even older can be brought into the country..only thing the fine/ penalty has to be paid along with the normal duty.

You have answered your own question. They don't come with side curtains or b pillar airbags, just front.

Not intentional. Why would anyone intentionally crash a car.....

I'm very glad to hear from you about restoration possibility though.
Could you elaborate on penalty on vehicles older than 4 years being imported please?

I am not well versed with the penalty as it depends on the invoice value. Going by the vintage cars imports the total percentage should be in the 300% mark.
