The accident happened in Switzerland where the 32-year-old driver lost control.
A 32-year-old man has crashed a rented Lamborghini Huracan Spyder in Switzerland due to drunk driving and high speed. According to Polizei.news, the driver was from Zurich and had a passenger with him at the time of the crash.
The report says the pair were traveling to Bern when, barely halfway to their destination, the driver lost control and went off the highway near Suhr, Switzerland at around 9 pm on December 4, 2022. The aftermath is not pretty.
The photos show tire marks on the road just ahead of the central guardrail the Huracan slammed into. It then spun across the highway and finally came to a standstill on the embankment behind the guardrail's edge. No other vehicles were involved.
The local police department soon discovered that the driver was heavily intoxicated when the accident occurred. Prosecutors quickly ordered a blood alcohol test. The driver's license has since been revoked, at least temporarily. The good news is that neither the driver nor the passenger was seriously hurt. The Lamborghini, however, appears to be completely totaled. There was serious damage to the driver's side front quarter where the body panels were ripped off.
The name of the rental agency was not provided but it's fair to assume this driver will never be welcomed there again. Destroying a rented car, especially a supercar, is definitely frowned upon. Unfortunately, it's not unusual for accidents like this to happen on occasion.
Some people who rent supercars, which is not exactly cheap to do, are not experienced drivers. They're not capable of handling the sheer amount of power available.
In this case, the Huracan is powered by a naturally aspirated V10 engine producing a total of 631 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. All of that power is routed to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Not even the additional grip from the all-wheel drive system was able to prevent this accident from happening.
High-speed, drugs, and alcohol are always very dangerous and potentially fatal combinations.
