    Wins A Lamborghini Murci - Crashes It 6 Hours After Receiveing It

    David Dope or Dopp?

    David Dopp stands near the $380,000 Lamborghini he totaled just hours after he won it in a contest.

    A contest winner saw his good fortune come to a screeching halt on Sunday when he crashed a brand new $380,000 Lamborghini he won in a local convenience store contest — six hours after he got the keys.

    On his first night as a Lambo owner, David Dopp took his new wheels out for a spin on the outskirts of his hometown of Santaquin, Utah. He told KSL-TV that he ran into trouble when he took a curve too fast, hit a patch of ice or gravel, crashed through a fence post and finally landed in a field.

    Luckily, besides his pride — and prize, Dopp wasn’t injured.

    “My heart pretty much fell out,” Dopp’s wife, Annette Dopp told KSL. “They said they were okay. Then [came\], you know, that feeling when your heart drops and you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh. What do we do now?’”

    The Italian sports car, which is insured, is currently awaiting repairs to its front end, wheel and passenger side, the Associated Press reported.

    But even when it’s fixed, Dopp said he doesn’t plan on going on too many more joy rides.

    He said he’s giving up the keys and selling the car, which is valued at around $380,000, to pay off some bills — and buy his wife another car, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

    “Everything is going to be okay and we’ll move on from here,” he told ABC 4.

    How come this story doesn't surprise me? ... He won it by good luck then crashed it through poor judgement and lack of skill. He clearly unestimated its power and overestimated his talent while not paying due regard to road conditions.

    A pity for such a beautiful car. It won't be the same again even if it's repaired.

    From the photos there appears to be some snow on the ground; this means it is below 0 degrees C, and the Lambo would have had performance summer tires which are essentially hockey pucks at freezing temps.   Driving any car on these frozen summer tires is a recipe for disaster, let alone a car with this power.  Smiley

    Hey said he hit a patch of black ice which means the surface was definitely at or below 0c/32f.

    Why don't we actually say what we all think: This guy was an idiot. 

    He should have taken the new car, put it somewhere in a guarded parking garage and sell it.

    Taking it for a spin ? What an idiot. 

    Sorry for being blunt.

    Nah, I think it could have happened to any of us not used to driving super cars.
    Of course the sensible thing is to put it away until summer, but could you have restrained yourself?
    I know that I would have had difficulties! Good for him that he insured it, hope that he'll be able to sell it for a nice price.

    @RC: LOL ... yep, he was foolish. I just said it diplomatically ... the British way

    Hey, but it's a  " 4x4 " , like his pick -up truck, so it should be good to go in a snowstorm , right ?!
