We have another Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 wreck to report from China. This grey example lost control trying to avoid a collision with a truck in Nanjing, Eastern China. The Italian supercar hit a grass verge divided by a concrete kerb. As you can see from the photos, the Murcielago’s rear wheel has completely buckled, the rear bumper and right rear light also suffered damage.
The damage to the car looks fixable and the driver walked away uninjured. However, we’re told that the driver was not the owner and that the Lamborghini was in fact owned by his boss. The implications are that the car was probably not insured. The insurance company and the police are investigating what happened.
The accident happened on a busy stretch of road causing two kilometers of traffic.
This is not going to be anything new in future. In fact it isn’t now.
With an increase in exotica on the Chinese roads But woven into a melee of poor and congested roads ……. then where not congested or poor add in the ‘me first’ mentality of drivers with little understanding, road education or education full stop and this will continue …..
The ‘whatever’ exotica driver may have the sense and ability but 99% of the other road users have none …… A clapped out truck just pulling straight across a two lane highway at barely 15kms is nothing new but if you coming down at 240kph that trucker has no comprehension of speed or distance ….
I just think Chinese people can’t drive. Period
Oh and Uhm…..Do you really need insurance or care about gas mileage if you can afford a Lambo or a Fezza?! I mean seriously. If you need insurance on a car like this then its probably not a good idea to buy one isit?!
@ Tucson : go buy one then and see. Live life not speak it
