It's the Mazda's fault, but the Lamborghini was speeding... Hope he has good insurance.
Ouch.. Guess that's what he gets for showing off.
He hit three cars, lol. Dang... Oh well, dude must be able to afford it.
Hope it was worth scaring his girlfriend half to death, bro! By the way, they don't fix Lamborghini's - you have to replace them.
Ah wonderful drivers and their cockiness
Yeah I saw this on Jalopnik like a couple days ago. You still don't go speeding around London like that, he deserves it.
It doesn't look like he was going very fast.. The Mazda was at fault and nothing would have happen if he gave the right of way like he should have.
I'm assuming he did use the brakes, so he probably slowed down some before impact. If you listen to the engine right before impact, you can tell he was accelerating (or had accelerated) pretty quickly. The Aventador goes from 0-100KM/h (60MPH) in 2.9 seconds. So, yeah, it's likely he was going pretty fast...definitely exceeding the speed limit.
I agree, though. It's still mainly on the person driving the Mazda. They pulled out right in front of him on a straight street, obviously not looking carefully to their left before turning.
I don't know, I never drove a Lamborghini () but it sounds like a downshift. Plus the Mazda went pretty much at the exact moment the lambo was coming, so I doubt he had much time to apply the break. It looks like his break lights were not on at the moment of the impact too, don't know about that.
Anyway, it doesn't change anything at that point, the Mazda's insurance will have to shell out a lot of money.
It is quite difficult to tell for certain from that footage. All I know for certain is that he was at a pretty high RPM, which usually means he was just accelerating going into that general area, and those cars accelerate really quickly. He was also in Sport mode (you can tell from the sound of the exhaust).
If you think about it, the chance he was not speeding in a $500,000 sports car with an attractive girl in the passenger seat is slim to none. He was definitely showing off, and if I were showing off, I'd be speeding.
So, is anyone on this forum fortunate enough to own a vehicle like this?
