Lamborghini Aventador SV Goes Off-Road At Targa Tasmania Rally

Except for the LM002 or its spiritual successor, the new Urus, Lamborghinis aren’t exactly known for veering off tarmac.

However, over the years, quite a few have ended up leaving the road, some intentionally and some during accidents.

The latest example sees an Aventador SV going for a short off-roading adventure. The incident happened this week during the Targa Tasmania Rally, and a clip uploaded by the organizers shows the exact moment when the incident occurred, with the Raging Bull missing a right turn and ending up on the grass.

Both occupants of the SV are fine, according to the description of the video, and surprisingly, so is the car, which apparently went back to doing what it does best: racing.

The 2018 Targa Tasmania Rally kicked off on April 16 and saw some 300 vehicles lining up at the start line. Drivers and their navigators will have to travel for more than 2,000 km (1,243 miles), over almost 40 stages, until April 21, when this year’s event ends.

    Saw this Aventador on the roads a couple of days after the incident. First time I’ve seen one on Tassie roads. Unfortunately it was not in pristine shape! They’re in for an expensive repair bill once it’s fixed.
    Good to see our Targa event getting overseas coverage!

  • Well just to share some info about off road Lambo, unofficially group Lambo employee (Dallara, Stanzani and Wallace) once made a concept called Uracco Rallye. But when Ferruccio found out, he immediately ordered the project to be shut down and the car get scrapped.

    I took some photos of the damage to the spoiler a day or 2 after, looked like it kept on keeping on well enough.
