A tragic accident involving a Lamborghini Murcielago took place recently in Stuttgart, Germany, last weekend.
The Italian supercar has been driven on the A8 autobahn, near Stuttgart, Germany, when the driver has lost control of the wheel.

The model was offered with a 6.2 liter V12 engine, rated at 572 HP, or with three versions of the 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12, with either 640 HP, 650 HP or 670 HP. The unit was connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed e-Gear semi automatic transmission.
