The Land Down Under has seen its fair share of exotic car crashes over the years and it looks like that trend is far from slowing down. The latest supercar to meet an untimely end in Australia is this Lamborghini Gallardo, which clipped a taxi on Oxford Street in Sydney, Australia and, as a result of the collision, ended up t-boning another cab in the process.

While details behind the crash are still a little sketchy, judging from the photos, we can imagine that the rainy conditions in the area may have played a part in the Gallardo hitting the taxi. As you know, speed and wet roads go together as much as oil and water.

Lesson learned, too. When it rains, it’s always a good idea to slow down, even if you’re behind the wheel of a raging beast like a Lamborghini Gallardo.

David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Please stop blaming the rain for this incident. Most probably the reason for the
crashed would be the over speeding of Lamborghini Gallardo and I would say that it’s too
obvious. BTW, what happened to the drivers of both cars?

I guess the gallardo’s damage can be repaired, well good thing that it didn’t end it’s life to a crash.

Well, that’s really a waste of money. I think the driver of the Lamborghini Gallardo must practice more driving a supercar.

See even the title does say that the gallardo’s fault.

My guess is, the taxi was driving too fast.
