I was on my lunch break when I happened to drive upon the scene of this accident...

the lambo

skid marks



This happened on the 45 north feeder road in between Rankin and Richey. Which is about a mile down the road from Lamborghini of Houston. Turns out this car was street racing an 06 Dodge Viper GTS and they both somehow lost control. What makes it even worse is that the lamborghini was previously owned AND SIGNED by Mario Andretti himself! It was a mint condition 1989 25th Anniversary version with less than 6,000 kilometers on the odometer. The car was just purchased from Lamborghini of Houston earlier today and one of the Lambo techs was driving it. He was on his way to deliver it to the new owner that supposedly paid over $100k for it.

Here is a link to some pictures the dealership had posted on it's website. This is what the car looked like this morning lol. Notice the signature...

That's when depression slowly sets in. Don't suppose we can get an address on the guy and kick his a** just a little bit.....

I had a friend who got a job at an exotic car dealership in Newport Beach, and on a weekly basis he would drive new cars to owners that were some times as far away as San Diego or Palm Springs. 19 years old and driving 100K, 200K, 300K+ cars!!! The owners must have been nuts is all I can say, but to give the guy credit he never wrecked a car although he admitted to doing more than one "Bonzai run" on the LA freeways. :ugh3:

I've would of thought they would of put it in some kind of transport truck or something instead of having someone drive it. What a shame.

seriously, I hope he gets sodomized by a porcupine for doing such a dishonor to a gem....

The viper GTS driver was a douche for participating, though it looks like he is salvageable

Hope this doesn't start a trend, like all the Ferrari Enzos that have gotten wasted the last couple of years. So sad.

:ahhhh:
