A Lamborghini Huracan in Mumbai suffered minor bruises after the driver lost control of the Rs. 3.43 Crore (ex-showroom, Delhi) Italian super car.
In a hilarious episode, BJP MLA Narendra Mehta’s wife rammed her saffron colour Lamborghini into an auto-rickshaw right outside her Seven Eleven Academy in Mira-Bhayander of Thane district.
The crazy part – The accident occurred just 30 minutes after she bought the luxury sports car, reports NDTV.
Mehta gifted his wife, Suman, the Rs 5.5 crore car on August 27 on the occasion of her birthday. The car reportedly carried a temporary sticker and wasn’t even registered with RTO, Thane.
According to the Hindustan Times report, Suman rammed the car into a stationary auto after losing control of the wheel. The furious auto driver was compensated by Mehta immediately.
The Lamborghini Huracan in question is propelled by a 5.2 litre naturally aspirated V10 engine capable of producing 610 hp at 8250 rpm while the peak torque of 560 Nm comes up at 6500 rpm. This enables the bull from Italy to sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.2 seconds and all the way up to a top speed of 325 kmph.
In a statement to HT, the MLA claimed that the issue is not as big as the social media is making it. He also claimed that his wife has 18 years of driving experience and has driven imported cars like Audi in the past.
