Forget the bike and look at the truck. It has toppled and the real axle has come off The Q7 must have been doing insane speeds to achieve that.

Seems like a Porsche has crashed in Delhi. Learnt it via an article on NDTV's. There's no mention of the model involved or any images of the crash.

If one is to look at the rear lamps of the Panamera, it seems as though the brake lights are lit up implying that the car itself applied brakes after detecting a collision.

Can someone please bring some clarity on this?

Noob question:

Does a sportscar/supercar purchase come with some sort of 'how to' training included, in India or anywhere in the world? Or is it just "Here's your key. We hope you can handle it"?

It's no way a noob question. Quite valid if you ask me. I've had a couple of first hand experiences with my relative in India and have seen few videos of owners abroad taking delivery of vehicles.

Almost everywhere you'd just have the sales representative explaining you the basic features (which petrolheads would already know), handing over paperwork and " we hope you can handle it".

Things like trackdays and all take place overseas wherein you'd have maybe factory drivers first explaining to you all the theoretical aspects followed by a track session.

Car clubs also organize track days for members wherein car owners can better understand their own limits and hustle the car around in safe environment.

I'm yet to see such a thing happening in India or maybe they've taken place and I'm just not aware.

Track days do happen in India but I think they are for prospective customers and not for those who have already bought the cars!

Perhaps the driver was inebriated ? Considering it's a residential area and the time of the crash. It's not a place where anyone in their right mind would drive very fast.

Also, do take a look at the Times of India article where the Porsche Panamera is quoted to "clock a speed of 300 kmph in 0.6 seconds" & "almost the entire body of the vehicle came off with the impact"

I would like to add my two cents here, having experienced it first hand. The track days I went to have only been for the customers who already own a car of the particular brand. I am unaware of track days being organised for prospective buyers or may be its a different league that they cater to.

That would be the park lamps. Note the number plate also being lit.

Damn! If I'm not mistaken, This car was on sale for a good price on CarDekho. Looks like it's not on the market anymore.

The Regional Transport Office (RTO) has detained a Lamborghini after finding out that the supercar's owner resorted to a number of tricks to dodge taxes on the vehicle, before stashing it away in a sports car showroom.

This is just bad timing for the owner. Every Feb-March, the RTO starts a drive to caught out of state cars to get revenue in before the year end. They further put such news in the papers to scare folks away from registering out of state. Same thing, different year. The only way this menace will stop is if the RTO becomes realistic of their taxes on CBU cars. Even Delhi has the same tax % on CBU and CKD cars, but MH charges you double the tax on CBUs.

There have been cases of people who have gone to court and won against the RTO on similar cases.
