Lamborghini Huracan supercar driver demonstrates why it’s not a good idea to do big speed on the public road in chilling viral crash video.
They say the only place where you can really safely stretch the legs of a high horsepower supercar is at a race track, drag strip or runway should you have the funds to hire an airport for the day… Yes, technically you could visit a country that doesn’t have speed limits on certain roads like Germany or Italy, but it’s still pretty sketchy doing over 200mph on a road shared with other cars, trucks and people. At 200mph the closing speed between you and a car that might want to pop out to the outside lane to overtake the dawdler doing 60mph is still a staggering 140mph. You’re almost covering 100 meters every second, the speed is incredible and most roads and drivers were not designed to deal with cars travelling at such a vast rate of knots.
The video below is proof that even in a fancy new Lamborghini Huracan supercar with all-wheel drive, a double-clutch gearbox and carbon fibre chassis that happily power past 200mph, things can and do go wrong. The chilling video below shows the moments before the bright green Lambo was turned into a pile of metallic mush as its pilot pushed the car up to 330km/h (205mph) on Hungary’s M7 highway. The video ends when the car seems to strike some quite severe bumps in the road which cause it to lose grip and collide with some metal before the video ends and the aftermath images commence.
Fortunately there were no fatalities in the accident, apart from the Huracan which was a total write off, though it’s believed the person filming from the passenger seat suffered serious injuries.
Lesson: stay safe out there. You can check out the full video below.
