Thankfully, the only injury sustained is a bruised ego.
Even something as simple as a fender bender is enough to put you in a bad mood. The admin that accompanies an accident, big or small, is frustrating, to say the least - not to mention the guilt associated with damaging your pride and joy. We can't imagine, then, how this Lamborghini owner is currently feeling.
In the following video, we can see the modified Huracan take off from the line, before hurtling down the straight with gusto. Suddenly, the Lamborghini loses control at high speed, hitting the wall in a cloud of smoke. Before being shunted into the wall, it sounds as if the Huracan lost power, smoke spilling off the rear as the parachute deployed. The Steele Industries Huracan was fitted with an F16++ Turbo Kit from 3:16 Speed, a company that specializes in Huracan and Audi R8 Twin Turbo Systems.
After hitting the opposite barrier of the drag strip, it jettisoned into the left-side barrier, spinning the twin-turbo Lambo around. The dragster came to a stop in the middle of the two lanes, with visible damage to the left-rear side of the supercar. As emergency response vehicles arrive, the driver of the vehicle, thankfully, jumps out of the vehicle appearing uninjured.
Based on the rapid acceleration of the Huracan, it's fair to assume he was traveling in excess of 100 mph, making this Lamborghini one lucky guy - despite the circumstances. The vehicle was partaking in the GTR World Cup 2022 and, according to footage taken prior to the crash, had performed phenomenally well.
In a previous run, the Lamborghini went up against its German cousin, the Audi R8, finishing the quarter-mile in just 8.048 seconds at a speed of 184.5 mph. This wreck follows the loss of another Raging Bull in Mexico when an ultra-rare Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63 caught alight and burnt to the ground.
While the loss of a rapidly quick supercar such as this one is a tragic event, we're thankful the driver made it out of this harsh shunt okay. With the amount of work that has clearly gone into this now-totaled Huracan, we can only imagine the owner is itching to start on his next build and dominate the drag strip once again. Perhaps his next straight-line demon will be even mightier than these seven-second Lambos.
