Today The Car Spotter brings you a blog article about the Lamborghini Huracan that was filmed after reaching speeds well over 200mph on the M7 public motorway in Hungary last September.
The reported incident of the first Lamborghini Huracan to be destroyed surfaced yesterday when footage was released of a Verde Mantis (Green) Huracan driving at recorded speeds of 336km/h (209mph) which later takes a turn for the worse.
The Lamborghini was registered in the Czech Republic and there are reports that this particular Lamborghini Huracan was a hire car. For the sake of everyone involved, I hope the correct insurance policy was taken out.
Throughout the event, the passenger was filming the speedometer and the video gives you a rough idea of how the crash happened.
Please watch the video released by Hungarian police below to see for yourselves.
Seemingly the motorway road surface changed or the front end lifted causing the Lime Green Lamborghini Huracan to bounce off the drivers side barrier before veering through the barrier on the passenger’s side and into a ditch.
Fortunately, the 36 year old driver managed to survive and pull the passenger out from the wreck before the car caught fire and melted to the ground. The filming passenger is reported to have suffered serious injuries and the driver is facing reckless driving and endangerment charges but is not yet in custody.
Unfortunately, little remains of the £160,000+ ($242,000+) Lamborghini Huracan however it is clear the safety features in the car have been outstanding. Who would have thought both occupants of the car would survive a 200mph+ crash?
Personally, like most people it is clear that driving at excessive speeds on public roads is extremely stupid, careless and endangers everyone within the vicinity. It is a pity the magnificent Lamborghini Huracan was written off, with the fire damaged engine being the only salvageable item.
What are your thoughts on the crash? Do you think the driver and passenger of the Lamborghini Huracan were lucky to escape with their lives?
