Teaching kids how to swim is hard enough as it is, but when you try to teach the same thing to a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV, people will automatically assume you’ve lost any semblance of sanity.
Undaunted, Jon Olsson took the proverbial book and threw it out the window at the recent Gumball 3000 run from London to Istanbul. On his way back to his home in Stockholm, Olsson encountered a few obstacles in the way for his prized supercar, none more daunting than a river crossing that required his Murcielago to brave the deep and dirty waters. With nothing in the way of losing all his marbles, Olsson decided that the best way home was going full steam ahead, which is exactly what he did with the Murcielago, driving it straight into the water for what seemed like a wet eternity.
Fortunately, it only lasted a few seconds and the Murcielago LP670-4 was back in dry land in no time. Even better, Olsson managed to make the 3,000-mile drive back to Stockholm with nothing less than clear roads.
We admire his cojones for taking his Murcielago out for a dip in the water, but we seriously advise anybody who’s thinking of doing the same to, well, not. The reward isn’t as great as the potential risk.
