Video: Reckless Lamborghini driver crashes at 320kph on public roads

Close

/

A brand new Lamborghini Huracan crashed through a barrier into a ditch and caught fire on the M7 highway in Hungary at 320kph. Both the driver and female passenger somehow survived the terrible wreckage. This is the first known crash of a Lamborghini Huracan.

The car was registered to an owner in the Czech Republic.

As you can see from the video, the driver was speeding constantly and at the speeds he was doing there was no hope of stopping for anything that might happen.

As a car goes faster it actually becomes lighter, the wind that passes under the car actually lifts it off the road. This is why fast cars have spoilers and wings that help push the car onto the road.

However, if you hit a bump in the road at 320kph, these spoilers don't make much of a difference. Once the tyres have lost grip there's nothing much you can do except hang on and hope for the best.

It's pure luck that both the driver and passenger got out of this alive, in fact there was no one injured.

The Lambo is now a burnt out wreck. It's the first crash of the new Huracan that we know about and we hope it's the last.
