Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Crashes and Burns While Racing... A Toyota?

Lamborghini destroyed in I-196 crash

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 not only costs a medium-sized fortune, it also pumps 631 ponies from its 6.5-liter V-12 engine. That really should give you the confidence to not need to race anyone, as you would beat three-quarters of the cars on the road anyhow, especially a compact import econobox.

So when a “Toyota-type passenger car” pulls along side your $400K+ car and starts revving his little 4- or 6-banger, you should just look, smile, and carry on as normal. Apparently, a Michigan man didn’t get this memo, as he chose to allegedly fly down the highway with said Toyota-type car trailing – you do the math; sounds like a race to us – and proceeded to wreck his beautiful Murcielago.

This wasn’t just some little “oopsy” fender bender either. He put his pricey Lambo straight into a line of trees at a very high speed. On top of that, the car then turned into a very expensive ball of flames, leaving the Lambo a charred and melted mess. Fortunately, the driver got out of the car safely and only suffered a bump on the head and a huge bump in his wallet.

The only thing that comes to our mind is “Why?” Why on earth would you put so much effort into racing a freaking Toyota passenger car that you careen off of the road and slam your $400K+ car into the treeline? Hopefully this guy takes two lessons from this ordeal:

No. 1: Street racing is for tool bags that are attempting to compensate for something.

No. 2: Don’t race your $400K car against a Toyota... It’s bad Karma (Fiery Fisker pun intended).

Grow-up men. Why a Toyota will compete and challenge the Bugatti? What’s gotten on them?

It really drives me crazy when I think about the racing happened on Toyota and a Lamborghini.

Yeah, impossible race. A Lambo and Toyota pitted for a race. Leave it man.

Unbelievable! Toyota will have a race on Bugatti? That’s impossible. It’s a David-Goliath thing.

That’s ridiculous! I doubt this event. It’s impossible for a Toyota to compete with racing authority Murcielago.

I think the idiot driver slams the car on the side. Only a handful of expert drivers can drive Lamborghini safety.
