Default Video: Lamborghini Huracán 300+ kph crash

A video of the first Huracan crash that occurred in Hungary last year has just been released apparently by the Hungarian police. Below mentioned are more details from www.worldcarfans.com.



Link - http://www.worldcarfans.com/11501198...uracan-emerges

The driver was doing over 310 km/hr and hit a road undulation and lost control. Both passengers escaped the mangled vehicle before it burned to the ground. This video shows how one tiny undulation on the road at such speeds can crash even the most powerful and capable supercars.

"The story was about a Verde Mantis (green) which was obliterated following a brutal crash on the M7 highway in Hungary. Now, an anonymous tipster has sent us footage from the on-board camera of the Huracan and it seems the video was released by the Hungarian police. The driver of the supercar probably wanted to test the Huracan's top speed as he hit 334 km/h (207.5 mph) a couple of times but as you can see it didn't end well.

At one point while he was doing around 310 km/h (192.6 mph), a change of road surface resulted in a loss of control and traction, leading to a crash into the left barrier followed by another one in the right barrier and then the vehicle ended up into a nearby ditch on the side of the highway.
Despite the powerful impacts, both driver and passenger survived (with serious injuries) and managed to get out of the Huracan before it went up in flames."

Its dangerous to drive at that speed in F1. A controlled, safer environment that actually has taken lives due to such accidents.

Testing it on common roads is disaster waiting to happen.

These days i see super bike owners testing their bikes in ECR in the morning. I have seen then hit 200+ and even boast about it. Honestly this is a disaster waiting to happen.

Its amazing that these guys got out of the car alive.

The difference to Hungary is that once one of these bikers plasters himself all over the road at 200 km/h (or worse: kills a bystander/pedestrian), ECR commuters can expect a zillion speed breakers to pop up, like pimples on a teenager's face!

That speed is insane on a public highway. It's not only dangerous to the driver but also to the fellow drivers on the road. It is very irresponsible to be driving at those speeds on a public road. Indeed, it is a miracle he even survived. Still cant believe it - he survived a crash at 300 kph ! He is very lucky indeed to be alive.

Did some research and found out that the occupants survived because of three vital things:

1) Good road infrastructure and surrounding guard rails (Change in road surface is what caused it? But , honestly , road surfaces aren't designed bearing 300+ lambo pushing morons in mind , perhaps the autobahn is ?)

2) Carbon fiber aluminium space frame of the Huracan ( apparently it detaches from the rear of the car or something).

3) Sheer bloody luck.

Nothing but the finest example of natural selection if you ask me - it's downright crazy to drive at 300+ for the thrill of it on public roads.
