While the road and highway infrastructure of India is improving, there is still a long way to go before they reach the standards of developed countries. Such high-end sportscars are extremely powerful and even with a plethora of safety features, things can go out of hand.

We have seen many accidents with such powerful cars in public places. Because of the quick acceleration, not-so-experienced drivers can lose control of the vehicle. This is why one should not try to check the full potential of these vehicles on crowded roads or any public road, especially in India.

There are many car meets and events that take place on proper tracks and one can always take their vehicle to test the capabilities. Public roads are unpredictable and any other vehicle or cattle can cause accidents.

In the past, we have seen numerous instances where high-performance cars go out of control causing a crash.

Cops target supercars

Because of such behaviour of supercar owners, the cops become extra vigilant when it comes to expensive supercars. In the past, police have stopped supercars and superbikes from entering expressways to ensure that there is no street racing.

Sports cars and high-performance cars are one of the best and most sought-after vehicles for enthusiasts. However, owners should be extra responsible while driving such powerful machines on the public roads.
