Terrifying Video Shows Lamborghini Huracan Crash at 312km/h or 194MPH

Hungarian police have released in-board footage of a horrific accident with a speeding Lamborghini Huracan that occurred on September 5, 2014.

The video was shot by the passenger, possibly on a cell phone, showing the hot Italian exotic reaching speeds of over 335km/h (212mph) on the M7 motorway before the driver lost control of the car, at which point, he was going around 312km/h (194mph).

After watching the video and seeing the condition of the Huracan burned down in a ditch next to the road, you’ll surely be surprised to learn that the 36-year old driver, who was not identified by the police, not only managed to get out of the car, but was also able to pull out and rescue the passenger.

Unfortunately, the passenger suffered serious injuries including burns, and as a result, the driver is facing numerous charges.

    Surviving a 194MPH crash, (without race gear) speaks highly of the Huracan.

      Especailly considering the fact he left the road and ran into a ditch at such speed.

    • sss

    I wonder Why when I hear or read these incidents “the driver lost control of the car”.

    Obviously the speed is a factor, but that does explain Why he lost control. Does anyone know what caused him to loose control?

    • Miroku

      I have no idea, but I’m guessing maybe a bump on the road?

    • jarooo4

      In my opinion the video clearly shows that the road was bumpy (depending on the last seconds). It surely was safe to drive around 140km/h but not 312…

      • The road might have been bumpy, or there might have been a mechanical failure. The debris is so finely minced, no one will ever know. But good on the passenger cabin for staying intact.

    They shouldn’t press charges against the driver, the passenger knew the risks getting into the car.

  • TheBelltower

    This type of speed should only be for the track, far away from people that could wander into your path.

  • Oy vey..

  • Pragyan

    The investigation photos clearly show the vehicle lost control after a culvert … Also seconds before the video turns off the vehicle bumps up and down crazily after which he has lost control and drifted into the ditch.

    It’s always the passenger suffering.
