Late last Thursday in Switzerland a young drunk Russian driver crashed his Lamborghini Murcielago into a Volkswagen Golf, while racing friends in three other exotic cars on the outskirts of Geneva, leaving an elderly German badly injured.
The Moscow Times reports that all four drivers of the cars have been questioned and released, two of which are the sons of Russian multimillionaire Telman Ismailov.
The cars that the four Russians, aged between 20-24, were driving were a Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes Mclaren SLR, Porsche Cayenne Turbo and the Lamborghini Murcielago that crashed, which was apparently rented.
It is reported that the Murcielago driver lost control of his car and hit the Volkswagen Golf in front of him, sending it spinning into a guardrail. This resulted in the 70yr old German driver having to be cut from his car, and is currently in a serious condition in hospital.
The Murcielago is said to have fled the scene of the accident, but was later found by the police. The driver gave a breath test which indicated that he had a blood alcohol level of 0.11%. This is more than double the Swiss legal limit of 0.05% and nearly four times the level of the Russian limit of 0.03%.

I was on that road today and the skidmarks are unbelievable. To give you an idea they start just after the bend in the background, where the crash happened (see the missing lamp). From the way they’re interlaced there was more than 3 full spins (flat hopefully).
Doing this despite the huge grip of the Lambo means that they were driving obscenely fast.
Needless to say that as soon as these young chaps were released a private jet flew them back home (probably Morley Airlines, of Gumball fame).
crazy what a wast of a Lamborghini …219mph has been seen in this LP640 and its crazy for people to just get on the road and go for that ..Avalancher is saying that this car was traveling that fast …I believe it !!! This car is not a toy you must have respect for it and its power.. so people please drive safe and try and find some racetracks to do your speed testing or this is what happens if you dont.
