Gallardo LP 560-4 Literally Bites the Dust in Saudi Arabia

Is it ironic that one of the countries with the most supercars in the world is also one of the worst to wreck them in?

We have a great business idea for any entrepreneurial readersin the Middle East. A driving school for supercars in Saudi Arabi. The Arab state is awash with supercars, yet, ironically, for reasons as silly as very poordrifting on roads crowded with oncoming trucks and the occasional camel, it also happens to be one of the countriesthat spell the most disaster for exotic metal. Unfortunately the latest to join this list is a 2009 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4, or at least what's left of it.

The only informationavailable from the wreckage came from Wrecked Exotics that mentioned the crash occurred early in the morning and that the Lambo was going veryfast: fast enough to have the tires endup 50 yards down the road. It makes sense, the $200k Gallardo LP 560-4 can reach 60 mph from standstill in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 202 mph, so a supercar driving school might not be a bad idea. The UAE is trying to ban inexperienced supercar drivers altogether. We wonder if Saudi Arabia could take steps to follow suit.
