Take a Lamborghini model from any generation or type, and it is bound to turn heads wherever it goes. The iconic growl of the V10 and V12 engines and the low slung aggressive design make the Lamborghinis attention magnets wherever they go. Such is the aura of the Lamborghinis that even in the standstill, they make everyone stand still and take notice of them. So, imagine what a pity if you come across an abandoned Lamborghini in a junkyard of a workshop.
In an Instagram post shared by a page named “rip_car”, we can see a pearl white coloured Lamborghini Murcielago in a deserted state. It is believed that this abandoned supercar once belonged to Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who sold this car a few years ago.
This Murcielago has been abandoned by its subsequent owner after a crash that happened a few years ago in Delhi. What’s more aching is that the Murcielago looks beyond repairing and is one of the very few Murcielagos on Indian soil. The said supercar is lying in a pitiful state, with its front and rear completely damaged and the suicide doors opened up fully. Even the sporty-looking dual-tone black and red interior are left to rot.
The Murcielago you see here is not the only Lamborghini that Mr Bachchan has owned to date. In a tweet he posted a few years ago, he said that he has owned Lamborghinis like Gallardo, Diablo and even the iconic Countach outside India. In the tweet, he added that he sold all of these supercars as he was not having space and time to drive them. Bachchan also owned the Lamborghini’s first-ever SUV – the LM200 in London as well. However, there are no pictures of the car available on the world wide web.
Amitabh Bachchan’s enviable car collection
Amitabh Bachchan is known for his love for cars and SUVs and has owned some desirable luxury vehicles in his entire lifetime. This white-coloured Lamborghini Murcielago was one of the very few supercars he has owned to date, with him rarely seen behind its steering wheel. This car was once showcased at the Parx Supercar rally in Mumbai a few years ago.
Currently, Mr Bachchan owns cars like Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Lexus LX 470, Mercedes-Benz GLS, Land Rover Range Rover Autobiography, Mini Cooper S, Toyota Camry Hybrid, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes-Maybach S-Class and Mercedes-Benz V-Class.
In the past, he has also owned cars like Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, Toyota Land Cruiser, previous-generation Lexus LX, BMW X5, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Porsche Cayman and the mighty Rolls Royce Phantom that he sold recently. The Phantom was even seized and the authorities found out that the new owner has not transferred the registration details to his name.
