If you’ve never seen a $400,000 car go airborne, this is your chance.
Unfortunately, it isn’t a cool stunt. It means the Lamborghini owner was having a really bad day.
While driving in London, this Lamborghini Aventador driver was surprised by a Mazda abruptly — and possibly without much situational awareness — turning onto the narrow street.
According to WorldCarFans, sources who saw the crash said “the driver of the sinister-looking Aventador was racing a Maserati GranTurismo Sport.” The Lamborghini Aventador is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine; this model can easily top 210 miles per hour and can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds.
TheBlaze was not able to independently verify those claims, but the matte-black Lamborghini does not seem to be hitting racing speed in the video.
Check it out for yourself. Regardless of who had the right of way, this crash causes the Lamborghini to go airborne, so you know the repair price tag will make the owner wince.
According to the Telegraph, the police breathalyzed the driver and the banged-up sports car was taken to the impound lot, but no arrests had been made following the crash.
And here is another post-crash video for a closer look at the damage.
