The Lamborghini owner is offering a reward to track down the Fiesta driver.
We've mourned the loss of several supercars that were reduced to mangled metal this year. There was the McLaren Speedtail that was smashed up at Fuji Speedway, and more recently a Ferrari LaFerrari worth $1.6 million was deliberately destroyed in an arson attack along with dozens of other exotic and classic cars.
And now a Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster has been damaged in a cringe-worthy crash that happened in Manchester, England. Footage shared by Supercar Fails shows the passenger of another car admiring the passing Aventador finished in Aqua Blue.
Seconds later, the driver of the Aventador slows down for a left turn and hits the brakes. As they turn left, the driver of a Ford Fiesta fails to stop in time and slams into the back of the supercar. And just to make a bad situation even worse, the Fiesta driver flees the scene. Alternative footage captured from a security camera shows the Fiesta driver stop for a few seconds after the accident before committing a hit and run. But who is to blame for the accident?
Some users are blaming Sebastien Dubois, who was driving the Lamborghini, for accelerating while indicating and braking late, but the Fiesta driver may have been following too close behind. Either way, the Fiesta driver is at fault for rear-ending the Aventador according to the law as they should have been more attentive and left enough space to stop in time.
The owner of the Lamborghini also claims the Fiesta driver was distracted as they were trying to film the Aventador on their phone. "Still looking for the moron that did my backend while I was indicating turning left the whole time," Sebastien wrote on Instagram. "Next time instead of pulling your phone for a video, just f*ckin brake, plenty space and time to see I'm turning left moron."
Luckily, Sebastien was unhurt in the crash, but repairing the Aventador SV Roadster won't be cheap considering it cost over $500,000 when it was new. Sebastian hasn't detailed the damages but promises to get this "beast back on the road in no time." He's even offering a reward for anyone who can help track the Fiesta driver down. If they get caught, they could face jail time for hit and run.
