The latest supercar accident comes from Singapore, where a Lexus LFA met a lamppost up close and personal, on Sunday evening.
A video posted on Facebook by Avery Wong, the man who filmed the incident, shows the driver of the Japanese V10-powered exotic abusing the throttle and losing traction immediately.
What happens next is pure physics, as due to the excessive speeding and not enough room to recover, the Lexus LFA hits the curb on the right side, before being steered left and cutting in front of a bus.
This is when the footage ends, but the supercar eventually came to a complete stop after hitting a lamppost, which then fell on top of it, Straitstimes reports. Luckily, the two occupants walked away, according to police, which is still investigating the incident.
“When he went past us, he floored the gas pedal and lost control and crashed into the lamppost”, said Mr. Wong. “He didn’t hit the bus; the bus was just a little too slow.”
In the picture shared on social media, the Lexus LFA is missing its rear right quarter panel, and appears to have suffered some deeper damages, too. Its front bumper hangs loose, and there’s also the problem of the lamppost that sits on the A-pillar, which has probably affected the integrity of the car. Hopefully, it’s not a write-off.
