- Check out my new Lamborghini!
That brings back memories – I saw a Countach (could have been a different model, not sure) hammering down the outside lane on Blackburn ring road about 20-odd years ago. The lane was coned off so he raced a Transit for the space in the inside lane. The Transit won and the front of the Lambo shattered into what seemed like a thousand pieces. The Transit didn’t stop.Posted 4 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
A guy at work showed that earlier, we were wondering how it happened and why someone was filming it. The only logical reason we came up with was that the Lambo had been doing some kind of test launch type start and the Mazda had thought it had stopped so could go then the Lambo flies up and smashes into it.Posted 4 years ago1981mikedMember
No darker or less visible than the Mazda really, why would colour be an issue? The insurance company take all theses factors into consideration when quoting a price. I don’t think he was doing more than 30mph, Mazda should have edged out into road if the view was obscured by parked cars. Lamborghini driver had nowhere to go.
Mazda 100% at fault.Posted 4 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
I had similar 6 years ago.
I edged out between two parked transit vans that blocked the view.
Motorbike was doing well over speed limit, could not avoid and ploughed into front wheel and door of our car.
100% my fault.
Didn’t stop the off duty copper giving the rider some grief for his speed and overtaking while wheeling…while rider was still on ground writhing in pain.Posted 4 years agoCougarSubscriber
Do people seriously reckon that crash was the result of a car doing <30mph?
No, I reckon it was a result of poor observation.
I’m not convinced the Lambo was going as fast as some seem to think, you know. It’s very difficult to judge from the POV of the video-er, but watch it again with the sound off. Probably too fast for the conditions (built-up area, parked cars etc) but I wouldn’t like to put any serious money on him being over the speed limit based on that video.Posted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
Knowing that part of the world rather well, I very much suspect the Lambo wasn’t obeying the speed limit there.
Heading North out of the Square is a favourite run for a certain breed of fast car owner in London. Used to turn South out of Cadogan Gate as a shortcut down the back pretty often. Regularly surprised by something coming North bound at speed. Always a fast/flash car, and always a certain type of driver…..Posted 4 years agomartinhutchSubscriber
No attempt by the Lambo driver to brake until after impact. The Mazda is creeping out, and I can’t believe either was completely unsighted.
I suspect that neither of them had much appreciation of just how wide that car is. Lambo thought he/she could nip through, Mazda thought he’d left enough room for the Lambo to get past.Posted 4 years ago
