I still fondly remember the opening scene in Transformers: Dark of the Moon movie back in 2011. There was an Audi R8 named Sideways. He did not last very long as he ended up being sliced in half by a Corvette named Sideswipe.
The lesson that can be gleaned from this is that when you drive supercars really fast, you’ll either end up killing someone or out the windshield to god’s breakfast table. Or if you do not die at once, you are subject to rot in hell for ruining such exquisite machinery.
One man who has definitely learned his lesson came all the way from North Virginia in the United States. Which is almost the last place on earth to test a car’s limits. The driver must have been driving a a million miles per hour to cause the car to split after hitting a concrete pole. Where other cars hug a tree, Lamborghinis break in half on purpose during a high speed crash.
And that isn’t a quality issue of Italian cars, or a design flaw. Rather, it is purposefully engineered to protect its occupants. Rightly so, since breaking in half, the Fairfax Country Fire and Rescue Department reported that the car’s rear end caught fire as the engine burst into flames. But it was quickly extinguished.
The bloke driving the car luckily walked away with only minor injuries and that is all I’m going to say about him. I do not want to speak of him or his life. He committed a very serious felony. He has wrecked the best and most exciting performance car on sale today.
When it does not spend it’s time in halves, the Lamborghini Huracan flashes from naught-to-60 in just 3.2 seconds. It has a mid-mounted – and more importantly – naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 that churns out 602 bhp and 570 torques. And, whisper it, it is a better car than the Ferrari 488 GTB.
