    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    there appears to be no shortage of folks out there with WAY more money than sense, stupid fucks....love the color

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    Sad !! People need to drive carefully , these things happen within in a 3-4 seconds

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    A little wax should be able to buff that out.

    1,5 is more than enough...

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    Since there are five vehicles involved, did the Lamborghini just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time? The newspaper article does not elaborate.

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    What make you so sure it's the LP640 ?
    looks like a regular murchi for me.. :\
    but it's sad anyway..

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    The air inlet in front of the rear wheel gives it away as an LP640. By the way, the inlet has a different shape in the left side.

    Shame about the car. I hope the two wounded (the article did not mention if they were in the Lambo or another car) will recover quickly.

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    It looks like the Lambo rear ended the silver car behind it and that car t-boned the car in the background.
    Just my observation. There are still two other cars involved that aren't in the picture.
    Crashing sucks!

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    I can confirm it is an LP640. It was sitting in the showroom at Lamborghini Birmingham the day I collected my Gallardo. It was a stunning car and it is a great shame to see it end up like that. I'm not aware of the whole story but someone posted on another forum that 2 of the people travelling in another car work for him. They were hospitalised as a result of the crash and apparently say it was the Lambo driver who caused it

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    Seems that LP640s, UK roads and UK drivers don't seem to mix. That's 2 now of these I've seen in the last few days.

    Coincidence?!

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    thats because they can't drive

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    Lamborghini Birmingham ? i was a orange one in that Bentley showroom!?

    The side inlet is the same as that of the LP640, transparent engine bay cover option and if you look at the interior of the door on the far side, it has the q-citura interior option; all these are exclusive on the LP640 - also not to mention the side mirrors too If you look closely at the front caliper you will notice how large it is in comparison with the rim of the wheel. This also indicates that it has the Carbon Ceramic Brake option(also exclusive to LP640 ) So it's definately an LP640

    The brakes didn't really help in that case...

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    BTW, Ceramic brakes are not exclusive option for LP640. You can get them on all Gallardo's as well.

    Right, but I think Mike meant that in case of the Murciélago they are available for the LP640 version only.

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    Wreck pic looks pretty similar to what happened to me...

    "Addendum of 07/04/2006:
    Today, on the second anniversary of my accident I got to know of the third crash that happened with a LP640. I just want to kindly remind that the LP640 isnt even officially for sale yet, so all LP640 crashes happened with drivers who work for Lamborghini.
    Especially interesting with this current crash is that the driver was nobody less than the number 1 Lamborghini testdriver Valentino Balboni. Now if this guy isnt able to drive such a car, then who is? A material defect would only be the most feasible solution for these 3 accidents, otherwise the car really is impossible to drive"

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    We finally get some insight. How is everything working out?

    You'd better watch out, Mike...

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    As I have written elsewhere, these cars are reaching a point where they are too much to handle ESPECIALLY on public streets. With all that power, owners need to find out what they paid for and in the process end up taking unreasonble risks. The temptation is just too great.

    These cars are an accident waiting to happen.

    Re: Another LP640 crash..

    My hearts just bleeds seeing such a beautiful car in such tatters. It's just a painful sight.

    I hope all those involved escaped unscathed or at least make a speedy recovery. The crash looks pretty horrific.

    I agree with nberry here. Power levels are going unerringly upwards yet driver skill levels remain much the same. The results are predictable.

    I think it should be an EU-wide law that any car with more than 300 bhp should come with a 1 day compulsory driver training course included in the price as standard. A half day PDE is already included in UK sales of new Porsches.

    (I know from the previous posts that this crash involved a Lamborghini test driver so such a course wouldn't have helped here but, nonetheless, for the general buyers out there, such courses should be compulsory).

    I would even provide an incentive. If a person undergoes such a course, they should qualify automatically for a 5% discount on their car insurance for each of the next 5 years. That will get people signing up for such courses in double quick time if there's money to be saved. So what if this is a 'bribe'? The outcome is a general raising of driving standards. Surely that's a good thing.

    Thanks for the heads up Rossi. Why do you think I have been going to the track so much I need to prepare myself to the "beast"!

    You've been to the track many times recently?

    Aaahhh, now I know the real reason why you'll sell the Noble, the SL65 and the RS4 for the LP640...





    ... you've all crashed them and now you have to get rid of the wrecks.
