Lamborghini Huracan Spyder Rear-Ends Honda Civic In Chicago

A Lamborghini Huracan Spyder has been damaged after getting wedged under a parked Honda Civic in Chicago on Friday night.

CBS Chicago reports that the Huracan was rear-ended by another car and rather than braking, the driver of the stealthy Italian supercar accidentally hit the accelerator, sending the car into the Civic. It makes for a very sad sight indeed.

The Huracan Spyder in question is adorned with a matte black and red wrap and rolls on a set of gloss black wheels over red brake calipers. It looks very good. Unfortunately, the sight of a bright blue Civic sitting on top of its windscreen somewhat ruins the visual.

It’s difficult to determine the full extent of damage sustained to the Huracan from these images, but from what we can see, the passenger side front fender has been dented and bent and will need to be replaced. Unsurprisingly, the bumper has also been scratched and the hood damaged. The driver’s side half of the windshield has also been smashed.

Speaking to the media, the driver of the Lamborghini Huracan didn’t seem overly bothered by the ordeal, simply stating that his first thought after the crash was to get out of the car because he noticed gas leaking. He went on to say that the Lamborghini is totaled and that he and his female partner would go car shopping on Monday to find a replacement.

Well, he brushed off this crash way too easily, didn’t he?

    The Lamborghini driver is clearly at fault too. This is why you don’t follow closely to the vehicle in front of you.

      Did you read the article before commenting? Hitting the accelerator instead of the brake kind of negates the safe following distance.

      • Brent Morrison

        Are you daft? It is still his fault for hitting the Civic. The Lambo driver is not innocent. If he left enough distance maybe he had time react and apply the brakes instead, and the damage wouldn’t be as extensive.

        • Jay

          The civic was parked of course it wasn’t their fault. Yes it’s the lambo drivers is fault for trying to park, hitting the wrong pedal and driving under the civic. Nothing to do with following distance though.

        • scjeff

          Who said it wasn’t the Lambo drivers fault? Again, spend some time to let the reading comprehension sink in before commenting.

          • Brent Morrison

            Read the article before commenting. The driver wasn’t overly bothered and the writer was suggesting shopping for another Lambo. You have reading skills of a 5 year old.

          • scjeff

            You’re funny. Not being bothered and shopping for another car have nothing (nada, zip, zilch) to do with causation. Just like commenting to an online article has nothing to do with defensive driving skills.

            Now before you jump to yet another incorrect conclusion I am NOT saying the Lambo driver wan’t at fault, of course hitting the accelerator instead of the brake caused the car to go under the Honda. It’s very clear in the article.

    • baofe

      First statement yes, the Lamborghini driver is at fault. Second statement no, you cannot determine that without actual footage or witnesses. Not saying you’re wrong and the driver does seem like a jerk, but you are definitely jumping to conclusions. You try driving a Lamborghini at a “safe following distance” and hit the accelerator instead of the brakes and see what happens.

      • Trocadero

        If you can’t tell the difference between the accelerator and the brake, you shouldn’t be driving anything.

        • Bo Hanan

          Period!

      • Brent Morrison

        LOL I would have never mistaken the brake with the gas pedal.

      A few weeks ago? I feel like this is the 30th time I’ve seen this, this year.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. Same cars too. Maybe it is a repost.

    So, here’s the thing. As a car enthusiast, my biggest problem with this is attitude. I’m glad no one was hurt, but you’re driving something that someone would give their left nut for, and your attitude is oh well, I’ll just get another one when I get around to it. Even if I was a billionaire, I’d be emotionally shook up. Not at the accident, but at the loss of something special. I could never look at something like this as a throwaway piece of tin, no matter my status.

      Here’s the thing, those cars only mean something to those that can’t afford it. If you can afford it, it’s more fashion than a necessity or a love. People making the upper 3 figure salaries and above aren’t really car enthusiasts, they just buy cars in the price bracket society says they should. Which is why they often have several trendy cars just sitting and wasting away in a garage, only to discover their daily driver is a subaru outback or an aged Bmw 3. Lol

        I might have to disagree with you there, automotive enthusiasts exist, no matter the class, net worth, or yearly salary, or income, and any enthusiast would be shaken up by this happening to their vehicle wether or not they could just get a new one.

        Now I could agree if it was someone who wasn’t a real enthusiast, (as in the type of people who buy a Lamborghini, because it says “Lamborghini” on it, NOT “because” it is a Lamborghini), Was not shaken up by this. It’s clear to see the person who owns this does not really “care” about that kind of stuff, and it’s clear to see that the owner of the vehicle here, isn’t really an enthusiast.
        (Either that or the owner of the Lamborghini really is taken aback by this and just has some major insecurity (and inferiority complex) issues).

        • Brent Morrison

          News flash: the majority of people who buy cars aren’t enthusiasts. Deal with it.

          • Mike anonymous

            Your right, and I realize that,.. (and thank you for the “News flash”, but I was replying to this quote from the original comment; “People making the upper 3 figure salaries and above aren’t really car enthusiasts”.

            Being rich or poor (or somewhere in between) shouldn’t determine whether your an enthusiast or not, which is my point.

            If you love automobiles, you love automobiles, & if you don’t you don’t. It matters not who you are, or where you come from. It’s as simple as that.

    • Stigasawuswrecks

      You can say that about people from 4rd world countries with the regular cars we have. I know in Jamaica having a Honda Accord means something and that it costs around $80-120k to own a new one. Different classes have different views.

    • Jay

      The problem is that they have so much money that it isn’t special to them at all. It’s prettt sad.
