Need For Speed: Most Wanted – In the lanes of Bandra

Posted on: Jun 2, 2012 - 5:32pm IST

Ferrari with yellow calipersSo it is a Bandh! No traffic, no pedestrians and no hawkers. Only empty streets. So what do you do in such a case?

Well if you have a car, you enjoy the empty roads. And if you have a supercar and so does one of your friends, you race them.

Well that’s what these two rich souls actually did on the day of Bharat Bandh and now have their cars impounded by the police.

On a hot afternoon in Bandra West, Mumbai, an event that could be mistaken for a Bollywood movie climax took place involving a Ferrari and a Lamborghini. The supercar duo were being chased down by the Mumbai police.

On Thursday, residents of Carter road in Bandra, complained after they couldn’t handle the ear shattering noise from the exhausts of these two beasts. What followed then, was literally a chase.

The police were called after the residents could not handle the loud exhaust note and the screeching sound the rubber made when the brakes were put to their full use. As the police van approached to stop these two drivers, they dodged their ways into the small lanes of Bandra and kept evading the cops. Finally the officials used their wit and blocked both the entry and exit points to nab them.

The drivers were arrested and the cars were impounded by the Khar Police. They have been booked for rash and negligent driving.

Supercar drivers rarely get to use their rides properly on busy roads, and sensing an opportunity, these two auto nuts took their pedal to metal and now have their beloved rides resting with the cops for breaking the law.

Looks like these guys enjoyed their dose of Need For Speed: Most Wanted –  in real life and saw a giant Game Over screen with their eyes.

    That was an amazing story…. They were doing stunts which led to the screeching of the tyres, and looks like they themselves wanted their cars impounded…

    But hey… They should have taken an impound strike marker to release their car from impound… I guess they didn’t win any… 😛 😀 😀

    Anyways, coming back to the story, I bet those guys are millionaires, so it wont be a problem to get a new lamborghini or ferrari…

    I wish there was a Veyron… it would have been amazing lol

    Well, I don’t blame the super rich with their super cars. It must have been the perfect day for a drive in Mumbai, I remember driving my Fiat on the roads of Mumbai during one of the many Bandhs,it was awesome. Imagine everyday driving at 20kmph, crawling and honking and getting scrapped and dented by taxi and auto drivers and then for once have the road to yourself.

    Supercars cannot be driven on the vast majority of Indian roads. Wonder why people keep buying them. Saw a Quattroporte in Chennai. It looked pathetic crawling along the Autos and the cycles. What struck me was the amount of petrol the car would have used up in that traffic. Even my maruti was using up quite a lot. It is such a waste of a precious resource. Demand like that will surely increase prices for all. The Govt should consider curbs on these vehicles.
