Literally, something took me over exasperating while reading Bangalore Mirror published article "HDK's son gifts himself a RS 5-crore Lamborghini", dated 5th July. The reason is, ignorance of information being published - by the most popular publication publishing, mistakenly, about the most exclusive spotted exotic supercar The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 as Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2.
Well, as an AutoHead, I respect the article and no offence to its writers or the medium, however, the fact remains incorrect as the entire article revolves around the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2.
The orange-coloured stunner, which is the latest addition to his collection, puts the young Turk, who is getting ready to take the family political legacy forward by simultaneously dabbling in politics and business, in a league all his own. He is the first Bangalorean to own the limited edition model. In fact, the Italian automobile manufacturer has launched only six exclusive limited edition cars in the country. "But Nikhil got it even before the manufacturer formally launched the cars in India. The car was delivered last month," a source close to Kumaraswamy's family told Bangalore Mirror. [As in Bangalore Mirror]
Now, the information above from Bangalore Mirror's 2nd and 3rd paragraph only reflects the actual information in one sentence "The orange-coloured stunner". The remaining lines do not reflect the actual car at all. In fact, the supercar is an Orange (Arancio Argos Pearl Effect) Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, launched in India in the last quarter of 2011. The six exclusive limited edition cars said above is with regards to the Indian Edition Lamborghini Gallardo. Which would be a limited edition and only six will be produced exclusively for India (read article here http://goo.gl/wj9Pp).
While I can see the table in the BM's article said this, however I had a question in mind. Are we talking about an engine 5.2 litre-10 cylinder V90? I have heard V8, V10, V12 and V6 too, OR was it actually meant to say V90°, which gave another meaning to the "V" if otherwise.
Specification of Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4: The bull is mated with a 6.5 liter V12, 60° engine which unleashes uncensored power of 700bhp at 8250rpm. The bull is capable of reaching 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and can cruise at a top speed of around 350 km/h making the Aventador stand among the fastest street-legal cars in the world.
There was a finishing statement to the article saying "Perhaps, the only road where the Lamborghini can be driven at its maximum speed is the NICE Road built by Gowda's other rival, Ashok Kheny! ". Now, this can be quite challenging taking it to the NICE road every time you want to test the bull's patients, I would ask WHY? Since, Bangalore has already seen two Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 cruising Bangalore roads after dark, this being the third one I have personally seen it gushing on the regular streets like a Bat Mobile.
