Jon Olsson’s Former Lamborghini Murcielago Crashes In Rotterdam

A Lamborghini Murcielago previously owned by Swedish skier Jon Olsson has been badly damaged after a crash in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

When being driven in the center of the city, the driver is thought to have accelerated too hard out of a corner, causing the rear wheels to break traction, sending the Italian exotic across a number of tram tracks and into a pole. The car was converted to rear wheel drive under Olsson’s ownership.

Based on the video below, it’s clear the front end of the Murcielago took the brunt of the impact with the bumper, bonnet and one of the front quarter panels torn from the car. Additionally, one of the headlights is missing and the windshield has been smashed.

Other damaged parts include the aftermarket carbon fiber rear wing, the side skirts and badly curbed wheels.

It is unclear if anyone was injured in the crash.

    Wasnt this car JUST sold? Last week or so? Didnt take long.

    • No, he just sold his 800hp supercharger Huracan. I think he had a Gallardo between those two or had the Gallardo with the Murcielago. But this car was the one that went Glacier riding.

    • Timell

      Yup. He sold it one or two months ago.

  • Kevin Tay

    Is there a trend behind this? Firstly his RS6 burst into flames, now his Murcielago crashed. Oh man, I hope his auctioned-off Huracan doesn’t become a victim.

      The Audi didn’t burst into flames. It was stolen and later put on fire by the thieves.

    Jon Olsson’s cars don’t fare well in the Netherlands… the Audi was also burned to a crisp a while ago.
