Default Red Lambhorgini Diablo & Maseratti

Hi Guys,

Happened to see a beauty Lambo Diablo being driven by some Arabs last night on Marine Drive. The car had some foreign number plate but the guys were really ripping the car. Also spotted was a Maserrati Metallic Red. I think it belongs to Mallya.

the lambo count is really becoming very interesting. this cud be a LHD Diablo i guess. And the Maserati you saw could probably be the Merak. Thats one of the most well maintained Maseratis's in Mumbai.

Turbo,
you saw the new Murci Barchetta owned by Spiderman.
Viper, i am guessing you saw the Diablo with the Dubai number Plate.
Guys, waiting for pics.

Hey Turbocharged!

I believe you are the first BHPian to capture the red murci on camera!
Please post it in this thread (The Yellow Murcielago Has Landed!!! Edit 080505 - Now a RED one too)

Forgot to mention. Pic Courtesy : BSM Motoring.
That Merak belongs to Vijay Mallaya. There is also another Maserati i had seen put on jacks in Juhu. The red Maserati Biturbo is currently at Team Motor Works.

The same Merak used to be in Bangalore 20 years ago during Vijay's wilder days. He used to beat the **it out of it. It was a faded red colour. Looks like he refurbished it and let it retire in luxury.

Beware of the biturbo - it is usually a lot of trouble to own and repair. TMW will have fun!
