Seems to be more like hear-say than actual fact. Wierd that ET picked up such a story. Oh and good luck to any one who can drive a car that is even lower than the LP640 and has the least number of creature comforts.

I dont really think this thing will come to India since it is only produced in Left hand Drive format, ultra low GC, need for very high quality fuel and no road infrastructure. All these reasons coupled with minimum service network will make it a super 'impractical' car. It will only be used as a show piece by Rich and famous.

In the words of Jezza, for India, this is about as useless as a "snooze button on a smoke alarm".

Ah, at last! This car will finally do justice to the amazing roads in our country. Can't wait to push it to 400 kph on empty Mumbai roads and highways.

PS: Is the car coming in stock form or with monster truck wheels/tyres and suspension?

The buyer of this Machine should also be an owner of atleast 2 Petrol Pumps & then the fun starts
1) Petrol Pump - Regular Use.
2) Petrol Pump - Enough Reserve.

I think it's the overactive imagination of an editor who had less than 30 mins to go before the paper went into print and an empty space.

Quite stupid. And yeah, for that money, it looks plain ugly. I've seen it in person and for such dough you can easily get aerodynamic efficiency AND eye candy elsewhere.

Driving a car with such ground clearance would be worse than a nightmare .
I mean, just look at this pic and imagine seeing one of these on Indian roads (potholes, so many speed breakers ,traffic Etc..)

Pic from Google.

Quite true. One would need atruck to follow the Aero. To pick up all the parts that fall off on the way!

Such cars are better off staying away from the Indian subcontinent, IMO.
