Thai Driver Crashes And Destroys Friend’s Lamborghini Murcielago SV

A rare Lamborghini Murcielago SV has been destroyed after crashing in Thailand.

The Mirror reports that the man behind the wheel of the expensive exotic actually borrowed it from a friend so he could “show off at a party”. However, those plan quickly unraveled after leaving a restaurant in Bangkok.

It is reported that the driver brought along two friends for a joyride in the two-seater but lost control of the Murcielago. He then hit a motorcycle and slammed into a palm tree.

Fortunately, all three managed to escape without serious injuries, but the Lamborghini is a total loss.

Pictures from the scene show that the passenger side took the brunt of the impact with both wheels on that side being ripped from the car. Additionally, the front end has been entirely destroyed and one of the doors severely dented and scratched.

It is believed that just 186 units of the Murcielago SV were built by the automaker and sadly, there is now one less on the streets.

    Unfortunate for him. I wonder if they’re still friends.

      It’s a shame people lose friends over material items like this.

        But what kind of ‘friend’ has such a reckless disregard for his friend’s pride and joy?

        • Jay

          The human kind.. mistakes/accidents happen, its not like the friend wrecked the car on purpose. I say it’s a shame because it has happened to me before. A friend totaled my car and even though they didn’t do it on purpose, insurance didn’t cover it and to this day our friendship isn’t the same. It’s a shame but I’m human.

            this is sad… did he offer you some cash compensation?

          • Jay

            We talked about it but they stopped before paying the whole amount.

            I understand what you say but people need to have a sense of responsibility. If a friend ever lent me his very special car I wouldn’t do stupid things with it. Mistakes and accidents do happen but if we don’t do stupid things they happen less often.

            we are human, we are pretty stupid anyway lol. Not the stupidest by far but still pretty stupid. Look at us hating and fighting each other over the color of our skin and the religion we choose, but thats a whole different topic… stupid things happen and some just aren’t in our control, but the world keeps spinning and life goes on.

    It seems like these cars are specifically built and sold to be demolished in spectacular ways.
