Lamborghini Huracan Crashes At The South African Festival of Motoring

A Lamborghini Huracan has crashed at the South African Festival of Motoring.

In a video posted by Zero2Turbo, the car is barely visible before something goes seriously wrong. Little is known about the crash but the clip shows the Huracan speeding down a straight and overtaking a car on its right.

What happens next is a bit of a mystery but the Lamborghini appears to leave the track shortly before a corner. The car then spins out of control before crashing into the barricades.

The driver was reportedly unharmed but the Huracan wasn't as lucky as the model suffered significant damage. The photo shows the driver's side bodywork is completely smashed and the rear bumper has also been damaged. While we can't see the front end, there's little doubt it will also need some work.

This particular Huracan won't be driving anytime soon but the standard model has a 5.2-liter V10 engine that develops 610 PS (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.2 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 325 km/h (201 mph).

Thanks to Paul for the tip!
