This Is How Not To Drive A Lamborghini On The Highway


Does make for a pretty cool dash cam video, mind.

It's pretty common knowledge that you should only drive you car in accordance with the conditions of the road. In fact, such an insight is one of the very first things you're taught when learning to drive. Furthermore, it's been frequently demonstrated that, just because an all-wheel drive cars has more traction, it doesn't mean they suddenly have more grip than two-wheel drive cars. It seems, though, that both of those snippets of wisdom didn't properly sink in with the driver of this Lamborghini Murcielago.

Thanks to the ubiquitous use of dashcam systems in Russia, we have a case-in-point example that no amount of wide tires and advanced all-wheel drive systems can suddenly magic grip out of the air when the road's been drenched in a downpour.

Even though we sadly don't have any footage of the Murcielago LP640 as it approached the car of the Russian who uploaded this footage, we can safely deduce by the distance the Lambo pirouetted on its way into the barrier that it was going at a fair rate of knots. If there's any real benefit to seeing a supercar in an accident of this kind, the spin itself does look pretty graceful when played in slow motion. Actually, there is another benefit: it's definitive proof that even supercars aren't immune from the effects a bit of rain can have, in spite of all the advanced tech that underpins them.

That's not to say us normal folk in our regular cars are any better off (there are idiot drivers across the spectrum, after all), but seeing how suddenly things can go wrong in a car that should have decent tires, all-wheel drive and driver assists working in their favor. If it can happen to people when they're driving cars like a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, it can happen to any of us.
