Supercars are exciting to spot on the streets with their snazzy profile, fast speed and extraordinary exhaust note. These are a common sight in city streets and in most cases, people just take a quick glance as the car zips past them.
However, supercars can create problems for the driver if the vehicle is being driven in a rash manner, overspeeding or making too much noise. Something similar happened in Bengaluru when the public confronted a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder owner and reportedly thrashed him for overspeeding and loud exhaust noise.
The incident happened on Sunday morning when the Lamborghini owner went out for a quick spin on the empty city roads. He was accompanied by a female co-driver. The incident happened when the car was going through RT Nagar, Bangalore. The residents of the locality caught him and then started beating him up.
According to the report, the locals claim that he was driving through the neighbourhood at high speed while caused the engine to rev at a higher pace and make more sound. The residents have stopped him because of his high-speed runs and the high exhaust note
The video shows several people manhandling the owner of the car who was driving the sports car. The Lamborghini Gallardo owner was circled by a lot of people and he can be seen taking a lot of blows on him. The lady was trying to stop the mob but it was of no help. We are not sure if the Lamborghini driver was revving the car necessarily. However, manhandling someone like this is surely not legal.
The driver and the co-driver were eventually let off the mob. The video has now become viral and it has even reached the Deputy Commissioner of Police. The DCP said that they are investigating the incident currently and will take action after receiving more information. No case has been registered as of now.
While rash driving is certainly dangerous, we feel that public vigilantism also has its risks. By thrashing the Lamborghini owner, the people have themselves violated the law. In such situations, the right thing to do would be to note down the number of the car and report it to the police. People can probably shoot some videos, which can then be used as evidence.
