The goal...

... is set. It is the Lamborghini Gallardo.

This is what it looks like:



This is what it's about:

Engine: 5200 cc, V10
0-100 kmph: 3.7 sec
Top speed: 325 kmph

It costs upward of US$ 200,000.

Clearly, there are some barriers:

1. I'll NEVER be able to buy it if my salary is INR-denominated. It's gonna be a challenge even with mid-range USD, EURO or GBP salaries.

2. A car with top-speed of 325 kmph, and 0-100 kmph in 3.7s, DOES NOT belong on Indian roads where traffic moves at an average speed of 30kmph at best, and divine bovine interventions can bring it to a halt. Even on highways, the limit is usually no more 80 kmph, and if you try to exceed that, you will probably stare death in the face - and it'll look like a wayward truck being piloted by a drunk illiterate doofus.

Both points imply the need for a long stint in the West, a lot of luck, and some major 'crack machana' in life.

I WILL make this happen. Soon.

  3. Dude... we're talking of a car that costs more than a crore rupees. I honestly don't know how long it'll take.
    But if I have to set a deadline, it is Feb 1, 2018. I will buy this when/before I am 35.
    And if anyone then says 'mid-life crisis', I will show this post as proof that it's not, and was the plan all along ;)
