Lamborghini Gallardo crash wrecks driver’s reputation in suburban Chicago intersection



It's a setup, right? No one would just happen to pull up behind a $200,000 Lamborghini Gallardo somewhere in the sprawling Chicago suburbs with a video camera running only to have the Gallardo driver get sudden onset Lambo brain and attempt to drift through the intersection, instead swapping paint with a Honda CR-V and Mercury Grand Marquis. That's going to leave a mark on their wallet.

Apparently captured at an intersection in Wheeling, Ill., there's no other information known about the driver of the Gallardo, other than their new-found knowledge of how the V-10 interacts with the all-wheel-drive system on a slow corner. But the videographer did capture the driver of his own Pontiac making one and possibly two illegal U-turns in the road while recording the aftermath. However much money they may get from a few ads on YouTube won't make up for the cost of a traffic ticket and auto insurance hike.

Like what they say when the newly rich decide to buy a high performance airplane and screw it into the ground: just because you can buy it don't mean you can fly it.

The guy in the Lambo thought he was hot shit. Guess his earning talent was greater than his driving talent.

Happens a lot with yuppies and their high powered auto toys.

I was coming back from Michigan a couple of weekends ago and a yellow Lambo, just like this was weaving through traffic like a complete asshole.

How do you make an illegal U turn? Only in Chicago is it illegal to make U turns, this was Wheeling......

That was a complete waste of my time viewing that video. Shaved must be running low on stories.

Who gives a fuck if he made a U turn? Sounded like three people with jobs to me. Give um a pass, I say.
