Lamborghini Aventador worth £250,000 towed away after three-car smash in Kensington
A £250,000 supercar turned heads for the wrong reasons after it was involved in a three-car smash in Kensington.Both sides of the front end are pretty badly damaged. There's probably $50K worth of damage done, easy. He'd have been better off totaling a Corvette.The article can't help but delve into a bit of class warfare, touching on the idea that it's hard to feel sorry for someone that wrecked a car that costs more than most people's homes.
The matt-black [sic] Lamborghini Aventador was left with damage to its front and had to be towed from the scene of the crash in Sloane Street.
Witnesses told how the rare supercar was in collision with a hatchback, causing the Lamborghini to veer off into a parked car.
What bothers me most, and this is applicable over a broad range of subjects, is that this douchecanoe went out, dropped nearly a half-million dollars on an Italian supercar, and yet couldn't spare a couple thousand to get some training on how to handle it. Yes, a weekend with Skip Barber is costly - but I guarantee it's less costly than what this guy did without training. Why on earth would you strap yourself into the driver's seat of a car that powerful without a few lessons on how to handle it?
He's damn lucky he didn't kill anyone, that's for certain. That's a car capable of 200 MPH, and had he wound it up and plowed into a crowd of people on a sidewalk he could really have hurt or even killed folks. Obviously he couldn't handle it, as he crashed into one car, then veered off into a second. Good thing he didn't take a corner too fast and wipe out a family.
Watch for the lawsuits against Lamborghini in 3... 2... 1...
That is all.
