A Lamborghini Aventador has been destroyed recently in China after being crashed into, sideways, by the Chinese equivalent of a Volkswagen Passat.
Whenever writing about supercar crashes we are used to blaming the guy behind the wheel for causing massive pileups but every once in a while, the driver of the exotic ride has nothing to do with the cause of the crash. This is the example here in which a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 has ended up looking worst than ever after being crashed into by the Chinese equivalent of the Volkswagen Passat, which flipped onto its roof. The accident took place in the city of Sanya and occupants got out of the car but they were taken to hospital, with non-life-threatening but serious head injuries.
The yellow finished Italian exotic vehicle suffered some heavy damage after the impact occurred on the rear-left quarter of it, resulting in a lot of bodywork torn off and exposed engine components, chassis and suspension. Chances are the Aventador will end up selling its parts if the insurance will not cover it so hopefully this won’t be the case.
The Lamborghini Aventador is the successor of the Murcielago and it has been in production since 2011. The model was launched at the Geneva Motor Show and it is offered in a two-door coupe / two-door roadster body styles, both of them getting the rear mid-engine and all-wheel drive layout. Power is coming from a 6.5 liter unit with 690 HP and 689 Nm of torque, connected to a 7-speed single-clutch transmission. The supercar can reach a top speed of 350 km/h and it needs just 3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h.
