The driver of a Lamborghini Aventador has managed to crash his ride recently, in Miami, after travelling at speeds in excess of 100 mph.
MacArthur Causeway, in Miami Beach, has recently seen a horrific car crash, involving one of the most interesting supercars currently available for order: the Lamborghini Aventador. The Italian vehicle was travelling at speeds in excess of 100 mph, at around 3 AM, when the driver failed to stop at a set of traffic lights, hitting the rear end of a Chevrolet Suburban.
According to the local automotive media, the impact was so violent that the Italian supercar has continued to travel down the road for another 100 meters, before coming to a rest. When it finally stopped, the top was shaved off. The passenger of the Aventador, the driver’s brother in law, died at the scene of the accident, and the 53-year old driver, Andres Esteban Toro, was taken to hospital with numerous broken bones.
The Lamborghini Aventador is taking its power from a massive 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 690 HP (510 kW) and it has a peak torque of 690 Nm (510 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph). The Aventador is the official replacement of the Murcielago and this has been in production since 2011.
