Continued: 20 MIND-NUMBING exotic car crashes of India: Bentleys to Jaguars

Porsche Cayenne Turbo

crash 3

The Porsche Cayenne is a rare SUV. The turbo being more rare, since most people opt for the diesel or the base petrol spec. This one though was sadly a brand new Cayenne Turbo which flipped over.

While the cause for the flipping is not yet known, there is damage to the vehicle on the sides as well as the roof and the front, which means repairing it will be a tough task. Luckily though the passengers escaped unhurt.

Range Rover Sport

crash 4

This incident happened recently in Chennai wherein the driver seems to have lost control of the car and hit a tree. While the Sport is a sporty vehicle, it is a SUV at the end of the day. Damage to the front end is extensive. While the car bore the brunt of the impact well, it will take a lot of time and money to get this back to running order.

Jaguar XK-R

crash 8

The XK-R came to India in limited numbers and not many people picked them up. This one was unfortunate to get involved in a crash even before it was sold to a customer. It is reported that the vehicle was being test driven when the driver lost control. The end result is what you can see in the image here. From the looks of it, it does not seem that the car will be fixed and restored easily.

Porsche Boxster

crash 5

This is among the latest crashes that has taken place in India. Details on the crash are not clear. However, the front left hand side of the Boxster looks badly damaged and the car may have steering and suspension damage too. The damage however looks repairable.

Ford Mustang

crash 11

Last week wasn’t a really good one for Mustangs. While we had reported that one had crashed in Punjab in the beginning of the week, another one met the same fate towards the end of the week.

This vehicle, from Surat, looks like it hit something which came directly in front of it. Details on how the crash took place aren’t available. However, the extensive damage to the front end of this vehicle is visible in the image.

Bentley Continental GT

crash 9

This one sadly had nothing to do with either the driver or any other car. This was more of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. While this GT was parked, a tree fell on it damaging the roof and the structure of the car.

BMW Z4

crash 12While the Z4 is a covertible, this is taking the convertible phrase too seriously. According to reports, this vehicle was racing against another high end sports can and the driver of this one lost control and crashed into a lot of things.

Since the impact was from the passenger side, the passenger who was sitting in the vehicle died instantly where as the driver was admitted to the hospital in critical condition. The vehicle looks totalled and the incident took place in Ludhiana in Punjab.

BMW M3

crash 2 crash 2a

This was a BMW M3 that was tastefully modified. It had a lot of performance and visual modifications done to it (like the carbon fibre hood). The driver, happened to hit an oncoming scooter which resulted in the death of the people who were on it.

The scooter was broken into two pieces as well. While the car was heavily damaged after the incident, the driver fled the scene worried that he may be beaten. When the villagers got to know of the incident, they set the car on fire and this is what remains of the M3 now.

Range Rover Vogue

crash 7

We keep reading that speed thrills, but kills. Here is a another example of the same. The driver of this Range Rover Vogue happened to miss a truck in front and ended up rear ending it at high speeds. Since the truck didn’t have an underprotection guard, the impact was directly on the A-pillar causing the roof to cave in and causing the driver to die on the spot, sadly.

Mercedes SLK

crash 10

The SLK (SLC as it is now known) was the cheapest roadster from Mercedes Benz. While this wasn’t a car that was appreciated by many (the looks), it still was among the cheapest drop top vehicles money could buy and was hence pretty popular when newly introduced.

This one here met with an accident in the capital of the country, Delhi. Reports suggest that the vehicle T-boned a taxi late at night. While the car looks crumpled, the driver of the car happened to survive the incident without a scratch.
