Video: Jon Olsson teaches his Lamborghini Murcielago not to fear the water

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.

Is it a river? It seems it was just a canal or flooded low ground. You guys are so exaggerating this article.

That was too risking! Well, guys don’t ever dare to try this one. I know we are curious but let the professionals do it for themselves. Its not advisable for ordinary drivers to take risk of their precious cars.

I would agree with you on that onre. Olsson is really the only guy who would be able to pull off this one and actually come out of it still looking good.

Well, let’s face it. Olsson is filthy rich, so he can practically do anything with the cars that he has. But, I really do admire his guts for pulling off this stunt.

Yeah, you’re right. There have actually been a lot of guys who have tried this one already. And as far as I know, they were all able to pull it off. But you really would want to admire the guts of these folks.

I tell you guys, that is definitely the right way to ride a Murcielago. Those sissies out there think that this one is only good for show, but this is definitely the best way to appreciate the car.

I think it was not only Olsson who has able to pull this one off with a Murcielago. But that one is certainly one brave effort coming from him.

That was a huge thing to drive a precious Lamborghini into a dirty muddy water like that. Maybe Jon Olsson is just fortunate that nothing happen to his car.

Hahaha! As I have thought, only Olsson has the guts for this one and actually pulls it off very nicely. I wonder what his next stunt would be? Can’t wait for that one.

hmm. I think it’s not his intention to dip the Murcielago in a dirty water or even want to touched it. He just need to do that in order to bridge in the floody road! However, its a good thing that it lasted in a few seconds.
