A car owner believed to be a student crashed his Lamborghini Aventador into a Mercedes-Benz and Vauxhall Astra while speeding with another Lamborghini on London’s Park Lane.
Footage of the incident shows the Lamborghini losing control, as the driver tries to make a sharp turn after speeding ahead of the other competitor, crashing into two other vehicles.
The damaged Aventador was a “Batmobile-style” SV model, which is one of the rarest cars in the world. The incredible vehicle features an upgraded 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine with 750 horse power. It can rush at a top speed of 2.9 seconds per hour. While the supercar is indeed a thing of beauty, like all other automobiles it must not be driven recklessly.
However, the London car owner didn’t care much about destroying his black Aventador SV — with a “The84T” number plate, to suit its Batmobile style persona — and he also caused a considerable amount of damage to two other cars.
An eyewitness who saw the horrifying collision told The Sun Online, “The crash had just happened when I walked around the corner. There was another Lamborghini and the two drivers were racing.
“The driver was a young Asian guy and he was obviously wealthy because he didn't even seem that bothered about the damage to his car.
“It turned out that the four people in the Vauxhall Astra were some friends of friends and they said he was speeding,” he continued. “The driver is a university student. He was going 100 mph… It gave me the fright of my life.”
Another eyewitness described the accident: “I’ve seen the young owner of the car driving around Mayfair only last week. It was such a beautiful car, like the Batmobile with the perfect number plate too. I even took some photographs of it. I was shocked to find it ruined last night on Park Lane.”
The crash was reportedly so fierce, it enabled the built in roll-over bars on the Lamborghini.
Traffic remained chaotic for sometime after the crash while the authorities carried out a cleanup.
Fortunately, no one was injured, the police reported.
