Lamborghini Gallardo Spider flipped by mechanic during joyride image

A Lamborghini Gallardo Spider has been recently flipped by a mechanic who has taken it out for a joyride, on a wet road in Austria.

A 29-year old mechanic, Niklas Schwartz, has managed to crash a Lamborghini Gallardo Spider after taking out for a joyride. The Italian supercar has been brought in for a set of minor repairs and after completing his task, the mechanic couldn’t help himself and took the Gallardo out for a spin. Unluckily for him, the road was wet and he ended up losing traction and flipping over his borrowed ride. The driver escaped with no wounds but his passenger suffered some head injury.

The Lamborghini Gallardo Spider is the convertible version of the regular Gallardo and it has been unveiled back in 2008, during the Los Angeles Auto Show. This has been based on the Gallardo LP560-4 and it’s coming with an improved 5.2 liter V10 engine, with a better transmission and with a 20 kg weight loss. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 4.0 seconds in this version and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph), the supercar needs 13.1 seconds. Top speed stands at 324 km/h (201 mph).
