A white Lamborghini Aventador was totaled in an unfortunate coming together with a dump truck in Puning, a city in Guangdong Province of China. The head-on collision not only shattered the car’s razor sharp nose but obliterated a significant portion of the carbon fibre chassis, rendering the car irreparable.
Circumstances of the accident are not known yet but copious photographs of the aftermath indicate that the Lambo was traveling at a high speed. The driver was reportedly trapped in the mangles but was fortunately rescued by the fire fighters.
Supercar accidents are increasing in frequency of late and a majority of them take place within the confines of urban environment, suggesting that many of the owners find it overwhelming to check the machines’ explosive power. The strong urge to show off in front of captivated beholders is another strong reason for such regrettable outcomes.
The Aventador is an untamed beast whose immense capability could do great harm if not treated with respect. The hand built supercar is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine which puts out a shattering (quite literally in this case) 700 PS and 690 Nm of torque. Mated to a 7-speed ISR dual-clutch sequential transmission and a Haldex 4WD system, the raging bull can catapult to 100 kmph from rest is less than 3 seconds.
