This year's Gumball 3000 road rally has claimed its first victim due to extremely wet conditions.
Only hours after the 2013 Gumball 3000 kicked off in Copenhagen, a participating Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV has become the first victim of this year’s rally and its wet road conditions. The supercar somehow crashed on its way to the first checkpoint in Stockholm, Sweden. Exact details as to what caused the crash remain unknown but what is for certain is that this Murcielago has suffered some serious damage. The matte black Lambo appears to have somehow swerved off the main road and into the woods.
There’s clearly damage to the rear end and the front left wheel came off entirely. Although we can’t tell from these images, there’s more than likely front-end damage as well. Road conditions were reportedly not the greatest at the moment of the crash due to rainy weather, making it all the more possible for additional accidents.
