The actor picked up the Lamborghini in the Grigio Keres shade. Lamborghini Urus might not be the first-ever SUV from Lamborghini, as that title goes to Lamborghini LM002, which was on sale in the 1980s. However, the Urus is much sportier and aggressive in its looks and performance compared to the bare-basic and rugged LM002.
The Lamborghini Urus is based on the same platform as the other luxury SUVs from the Volkswagen group, like Audi RSQ8, Bentley Bentayga and Porsche Cayenne. However, the Urus is the sportiest of the lot.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which powers all these SUVs, is in its most powerful state under the hood of the Urus, with a maximum power output of 650 PS and a peak torque output of 850 Nm. This engine is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. Prices for the Lamborghini Urus start at Rs 3.15 crore in India.
Also owns a Porsche 911 Carrera S
Fahadh Faasil also owns a Python Green Porsche 911 Carrera S. The iconic Porsche 911 Carerra S has been around for years and only a select few true-blue automobile enthusiasts choose this car. The sportscar is powered by a 3.0-litre flat-six cylinder boxer petrol engine. It gets twin turbochargers that ensure that the 911 Carerra S gets 450 Bhp of power and 530 Nm of peak torque. It gets an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission that is regarded as one the quickest transmission in the industry. It is an RWD car.
There are only a handful of celebrities in India who own a Porsche 911 Carerra S. Actor Ram Kapoor and Mamta Mohandas own a 911 Carerra S. Cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Suresh Raina also own a Porsche 911 but that is a different, more powerful model.
Fahadh Faasil was arrested for road tax evasion
Back in 2017, the actor was caught by for evading tax using forged papers. He got his Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG registered in Puducherry and used it in Kerala. The RTO investigated the matter and arrested the actor on charges of forgery.
Further investigations found out that Faasil rented a one-room house to get address proof and register the car at a much lower cost. Since Puducherry is a union territory, the road tax is much lower compared to Kerala. He was later released on bail.
