    Not the Lambo`s fault. It was the car turning into oncoming traffic.

    In before "He was driving a Lambo, so it`s his fault".

    Is that a movie set? In addition to the collision, there are multiple cars facing the wrong way.

    The Fiat in far frame at the beginning is facing the wrong way on what looks like a one-way street.

    Lambo driver looks like a toolbox. Here`s my surprised face.......


    This is why you don`t do 50 on city side streets you can avoid that sort of thing.

    Sounds like (and looks like, no "city speed" collision would send a car airborne like that) the lambo was arriving fast. The other driver might have been surprised.

    Had the Lambo driver not been speeding, he could have avoided the other guy who failed to yield.

    Still, it worked, he got the girl :)

    It`s just body damage and maybe a rim and axle. Probably 30k. Still, I`d pay that just to see his face when he wrecked it!

    Sounds like (and looks like, no "city speed" collision would send a car airborne like that) the lambo was arriving fast.

    Not if you take relevant details about the car into consideration:

    1) An Aventador is loud enough to trigger alarms and looks and sounds fast even at low speed. It`s designed that way - Lamborghinis are largely about drama and a sense of occasion. They`re an opera car :) The engine is designed to rev safely to 8500 rpm. This video sounds like low revs once you take the car into account.

    2) It`s a very stiff car with a sizeable weight bias towards the rear. The collision exposed one of the tires (large, high grip). It`s entirely possible that a "city speed" collision with that car and that damage could result in one wheel riding a little way up the other car, which would lift the front end a bit.

    3) Despite not having all tires on the road, it stopped very quickly.

    There`s a thing for filming high-end cars in real-world use. An Aventador can easily be heard well before it appears, giving plenty of time to pull out a camera and start filming.

    A relevant bit of video regarding the front-end lift in an Aventador coupe, with some handy slow-mo:

    Will it jump?

    Regarding the engine noise, here`s a stock dyno run. The proper run starts at 16s. Note the pitch of the sound - it`s a high-revving V12, not a low-revving V8.

    Aventador in crash was clearly at low revs

    Turning vehicle should have waited. Lambo should have been going slower, too. Also, it looked to me like the Lambo probably had sufficient time to hit the brake so I can`t help feeling that the driver thought "I`ll just swing around that 98 percenter and fly on".

    Well, he`s an idiot for driving a lambo in LONDON.

    That like getting a Siberian Husky dog when you live in an apartment. They need room to run or there will be destruction shortly thereafter.

    Yes of course, it`s a chick driving. Maybe Saudi Arabia has the right idea?

    BTW, in the UK, the driver sits on the right.

    Drac, ususally the do, but this looks like it`s a left hand drive import so it appears to be the guy that was driving.
