That hurts ! I wonder what it would take to repair one of these machines.

I remember seeing the Murcielago SV totaled and I always wished I had the money to give it a new life.

You can see it in happier times in the pic above next to the Corolla that I have on sale!

I think it is the same car which crashed on the Bangalore airport flyover and the incident has been reported here (Supercar & Import Crashes in India).

The front has had the big impact, I suppose it has run over the divider. Looks like it can brought back to shape or at least I hope so.

It is indeed the same car. The number plate in the photo shared by GTO matches the one in the video, ending with 5555.

I would definitely want to visit such a service centre, even if its just to glance at these beauties for a few minutes. Any idea where this could be?

A Navnit motors would be my guess.

Frankly I think the car is totalled. The frame would have been bent. If it was abroad, it would have been scrapped

Hehe, did you miss the Urus, Bently, Merc SLS (My guess) and a few others? Another lambo in red in background or some other car? Pic not clear

Better junk it. We had an unfortunate experience with a much humbler car. The problem is that shock waves from the front travel all over the car and basically wreck the chassis. Modern monocoque chassis are designed for maximum passenger survivability in a crash and not to conserve it. So the chassis is offered as a sacrificial lamb to meet that end.

Added to that is the fact that Ferrari and other supercars use exotic materials like Aluminum alloys, Carbon, Magnesium etc which are near impossible to bring back to original shape. There are garages abroad who are capable of a full restoration but i doubt if anyone can do such highly complex work here in India. The costs would also be astronomical.

I feel it can be saved if people with the right skills get hold of it. Youtube channels like goonzsquad, tavarish and similar rebuild channels have bought back cars that are way worse than this car. But the main problem will be getting hold of the parts and finding competent people to work on it here in india.

These kind of accidents are generally a write off as a total loss. Quotes for repairs generally exceed the cost of the actual vehicles.

The accident seems a serious one and replacement parts, body panels and actual assembly may not be possible locally.

Letting it go would be a better option IMO.

It definitely can be repaired if it has to be, but from an insurance point of view it'll be a write off/total loss if the repair cost exceeds the car's value.

But from a repair point of view, much worse cars have been repaired even if it was abroad. Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage (from the car restoration TV show "Fast N' Loud) famously bought and repaired a 1991 Ferrari F40 which was deemed a write off by most people - at a great cost however.

What would the price to restore such a car be?
Because if it is lower than a crore I think that the car will sell. The value of such a vehicle would normally be around 2 - 2.5 crore but since it is crashed it would sell for 80 lakh, so the entire cost would be cheaper.

I hope that the car is bought by someone who will care about it, fix it, drive it and enjoy it. The number of exotics restored in the country is low and if they aren't restored it will affect the used car prices. For a young person like me who hopes to buy a used exotic in 10-15 years, it will just make these cars more unattainable.

If the cars restoration price is above a crore than there is little to no chance that it will be restored, and we will see another beautiful exotic lying in a junk yard.
