Default Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Wrecked!

With 700 raging horses coming from a 6.5-liter V-12, and all the ego-boosted confidence that goes with it, it was only a matter of time until we had to report on the first crashed example of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.

There is almost no chance of injury, if he was wearing his seatbelts. These modern supercars are extremely safe.

I remember some rich and famous guy in the US had crashed his Enzo at 180mph or something. The entire front portion of the chassis, the entire rear engine, gearbox, and rear axle unite had compltely got detached. All that was left was the cabon fibre tub in which the passenger sits. The guy walked away with nothing but bruises.

Compared to that this crash is just a dent in the bumper.

Sad indeed.

When so much technology goes into these supercars, can't they make them idiot-proof also?

Going by the inevitable supercar fashion nowadays, an Aventador LP700 burned down to ashes today and the owner, somehow seems to be pleased with it.

See him posing for a pic with the car while the firefighters are putting the fire down?

UPDATE: The man pictured is not the owner, but rather the prospective owner. He was on a test drive. You can [COLOR=#417fb9]see video of it burning here[/COLOR].

With the latest in technology, is there no way to completely stop these "Sudden fires" from happening in exotics. There have been so many isolated incidents where Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Audis and the likes have caught fire. Also did someone notice almost of these sudden fire incidents happen on freeways and not in the city. It's a real pain to watch these uber-beauties burn, literally.

Because the city fires are left for the regular everyday sedans to take care of!

An Aventador split in two in a horrific crash. I hope the occupants are safe.

Not much info available on the crash.

Aventador split into two is shocking indeed considering it uses CFRP for its construction.

Somehow the passenger compartment looks pretty much intact which is a good thing & looks like the driver & the passenger (if any) would have survived.

It's not shocking once you see the construction.


The rear sub frame has sheared leaving the carbon tub intact.

I have a strong suspicion that it hit a pole or a sharp edge sideways.

Somebody trying to be a hero with traction control off?



According to comments in the source.

He hit a car then spun out and hit a tree, which split the car!

Now we have recorded footage available caught by a surveillance camera



IMO the Lambo owner was evidently not at fault.
