Lamborghini crashed less than half an hour after leaving the dealership – Robb report

It’s hard to imagine a better time than getting the keys to your new Lamborghini. Unless, of course, you had to crash the supercar shortly after leaving the parking lot. That would be a nightmare, and it’s something a British man went through earlier this week when he reportedly destroyed his Hurricane Performante Spyder less than half an hour after leaving the dealership.

It wasn’t nerves or arrogance that he did in this controller; instead, the accident appears to have been a case of sheer bad luck. The accident happened Wednesday afternoon, shortly after the unidentified driver took possession of the dazzling supercar. In a tweet, West Yorkshire police said the Lambo driver was traveling on the M1 east of Leicester when the mid-engine sprinter experienced a “mechanical failure.” While the driver almost certainly cursed his luck at this point, things soon worsened significantly when an “innocent motorist” in a van crashed into the Hurricane moments later.

Unsurprisingly, the collision left the Hurricane wiped out with Blu Aegeus in a sorry state. Her engine compartment was smashed and the right rear wheel was cut immediately. Fortunately, the car’s roll bars were deployed to help keep the owner safe. The driver of the van was not so lucky. They suffered a head injury, although it was not believed to be serious, according to the BBC.

While the damage could certainly have been much worse, reports that the $ 308,859 vehicle will surely be declared totaled at this point. Police quickly realized it is just a car, but its “could have cried” label also says exactly what we are all thinking.

As unfortunate as this Hurricane owner has been, he is not the first supercar buyer to fall victim to this cruel fate. Last summer, comedian Tracy Morgan had just left a dealership in a used 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport when another “innocent biker” hit him sideways in a Honda CR-V. While the $ 2 million car was not totaled, Morgan allegedly had to pay $ 200,000 to repair it.
