This Chrome Lamborghini Murcielago Crash Is 100% Real

Watching this dramatic dash-cam footage of a chrome-wrapped Lamborghini Murcielago lose control and crash on a drizzly Russian highway near Moscow, you may be tempted to think it’s fake – but it’s not, it’s for real.

Many viewers questioned its legitimacy based on how the car looked in the video, but you can blame the chrome-wrap for that. As our friends from Jalopnik found out, the aftermath of the accident was filmed too by a reader of the Russian news site Life, which proves its authenticity.

The report says that the driver of the silver Italian exotic was moving at a “high speed” on the wet road when the Murcielago turned its bottom around (aquaplaning?) smashing into a Peugeot crossover in the middle lane, before violently hitting the guardrails with parts of its body flying off in the air.

Luckily, no one was hurt. A Police spokesman told Russian media that the Lamborghini’s driver was arrested.
