Fatal car crash – Lamborghini Murcielago hits Nissan GT-R in Florida

A fatal car crash happened recently in Orlando, Florida, where a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 has hit a Nissan GT-R travelling in the opposite direction.

According to state troopers, 24-year Tiffany Beene and 24-year old Samuel Jonathan Hampton have lost their lives in the Lamborghini Murcielago after the Italian supercar has hit a Nissan GT-R travelling in the opposite direction. The 43-year old driver of the Japanese sports car, Chi Yan Chan, is in a critical condition and his 2-year old passenger, Tan P. Phan, was released from hospital after being treated. The crash between the two vehicles scattered debris for 1,000 feet.

As tragic as it may seem, this news is actually teaching us something very important: instead of buying an Italian supercar, we should choose the Nissan GT-R. It’s cheaper and it might save our lives at some point. As a quick reminder, the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 has been officially presented to the public back in 2006, during the Geneva Motor Show. The model is getting a 6.5 liter engine under its hood which is producing a total output of 640 PS (631 HP / 471 kW) at 8,000 rpm. The price for the Italian supercar in the United States was set at 318,800 USD MSRP, while the 2013 Nissan GT-R costs approximately 100,000 USD.
