Hurracan Spyder, plowed into from the rear 20 minutes after it left thew showroom, but this one wasn't completely the driver's fault.

The “brand new” Lamborghini stopped due to a mechanical failure and was then hit from behind by an “innocent motorist” on Wednesday, the West Yorkshire Police roads policing unit said on Twitter.


A 20 minute old car with mechanical problems?
A yugolike presence...

No, that won't buff right out.

I watch a YouTube channel called VinWiki that has tons of car stories, many about Lambos. Apparently the mighty Lamborghini is a garage queen far too much. Not as much as a Lotus, but still way more than a super expensive car should need repairs.

Lamborghini has a tremendous amount of engine issues right out of the gate on some models.

Meh, dealer insurance and driver insurance will hammer it out. They do a "PDI" (pre delivery inspection). Looks like something wasn't installed all the way/correctly.

Hit from behind by an "Innocent Motorist". I'd be interested to know how that is defined. I guess it wasn't the van driver's intent. Shrug

The "Innocent Motorist was probably trying to stop and avoid hitting the stopped car when someone pushed him into it.
No where to go or hit from behind and pushed into the stopped car.

My lotus was no garage queen...... It was a driveway queen

Seriously, I was lucky to get 200km a year out of the pile of junk.
