Aston Martin Rapide Mumbai Crash

With great power comes great responsibility. The driver of the Reliance Group owned black Aston Martin Rapide bearing the registration number MH-01-BK-99 seemed to have forgotten this fact. The car was speeding on Peddar road at around 1:30 AM in the morning on Saturday when the supercar rear ended an Audi A4 sedan so hard that it jumped the divider before crashing into a stationary bus. The Rapide was moving so fast that it had a second collision with a Hyundai Elantra and halted after 150 metres beyond this collision.

The driver of the Aston Martin Rapide is believed to have fled the scene immediately after the accident occurred. Three people have sustained minor injuries as a result of the accident including the occupants of the Audi and Elantra sedans. The Aston Martin Rapide is registered to Reliance Petrochemicals and the representatives of the company claim that the driver floored the accelerator instead of applying the brakes on the downward slope resulting in this chain accident.

Several supercar related accidents have occurred in India over the recent years. The growth of the number of supercars in India has been phenomenal. But when a car worth Rs. 4 crores is involved in an accident, it sure does raise eyebrows. The 6.0-litre V12 powered engine in the Rapide produces a staggering power output of 470 BHP and 600 Nm of torque. The affluent of the present times do not hesitate spending hefty crores on these supercars and the roads to drive these cars are few. Rash and negligent driving of these incredibly powerful machines can be disastrous. Cases under sections 279 (rash driving) and 337 (endangering life or personal safety of others) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Motor Vehicles Act have been booked against the driver.

    Sad… Rich Indian peoples can buy a 4 crore but not the life of a Common man…… Silly statement given by Aston driver. These type of idiots can buy car but don’t know how to drive it……. Chalo Jail ke Darshan krlo.

    The driver should be given a TVS 50 here onwards.

    That seems to be the reason why most Mumbai roads preferred to be pot hole rich.
    By the way the original news source said the second car was Toyota Corolla instead of Hyundai Elentra.
    Also the Reliance Industries spoke person said it was a “minor accident”… Wow
    and the one behind the wheel was a driver who took the car “for parking”… Super Wow.

    You have to show some respect towards the vehicle, I pity the driver who is illiterate and uneducated. I bet he wont even know the name of the vehicle he has been driving. Money can buy you something like this but not sense of responsibility.

    Driver is not at fault. The eyewitnesses say it was Akash Ambani who was driving the car. But obviously, the driver will be blamed. Equality disappears when money appears.
