It's not every day you see a $250,000 car in front of you at a stop light. Can you blame the driver and friends sitting behind the bright yellow Lamborghini Gallardo for switching on a smartphone to record some footage of it taking off when the green light flashes?
They sure are glad they did. Although initially disappointing to the car doing the filming, the Lamborghini doesn't gun it and go straight through the intersection as expected when the light changes. He does gun it but turns left instead. That's when the disappointment of missing out on getting to see the car really open up turns into something those filming never expected.
We won't describe what happened any further. Watch it for yourself and form your own judgements (Note: If you can't stand the anticipation of waiting for the light to turn green, jump to 0:48):
Toward the end of the video, one of the passengers says "That is getting some good views." So far, it has more than 400,000 hits within a day of posting.
Jalopnik, an automotive blog, considers the crash "stereotypical." Is it what you were expecting?
