God that's a bad one, don't want to imagine how it is when inside the car. But what do you mean when you say you LOST her?

Getting that Lambo back into shape should cost a few Peugeot's


Gotta see the videos on youtube, these arabs drifting, racing and all. Absolutely crazy and stunning!!

Sheesh the talians will never forgive the French.

Isn't that a Dodge Charger (yellow car) in the first pic?

Looks like the peugeot went over the median right into the lambo. Fatal attraction?

Looks like the impact to the lambo was minimized when the car ran over the median.

How do people get such ideas? You can call it an accident always

Spotted by my cousin in JBR a few weeks back..

The driver of the Mustang was drunk and the cops found a bottle of J & B and a half eaten Shawarma..

IMO, that tyre was kept aside for safety purpose. No way the tyre could have rolled out in an accident in such a small lane road. Just my guess
