The flying Lamborghini of London
Aventador crash in London
Owners of supercars are not highly popular in London. It's not that British people are envious of the millionaires driving the Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, the reason for indignation is the way these cars are driven: recklessly, like this poor Aventador in Nero Nemesis. The video of Shmee150 shows the moment of impact and became viral within hours with around three million views in just two days.
Just by hearing the Lambo’s engine revving you can tell that the driver was pushing the car way over speed limit. And this is why the driver of the Mazda pulled out in front of the Lambo. And this is why the forces of the impact got the Aventador airborne, flying several meters above the pavement. Thank God no one was hurt, only metal and composite parts suffered.
The second video, showing the aftermath and the wrecked Lamborghini being loaded on a tow truck reminds me of the white Gallardo parked in the middle of the street in Cannes. Towing such a low car is no easy job, and even loading one on a specially designed flatbed tilt-tray truck can be a pain.
