: How to NOT race a Lambo
02-23-2005, 02:03 PM
I believe this is turn six at Road Atlanta.
There is a straight just before that right hand downer. Carried to much speed into corner and hit brakes while the rear end was light. Hilarity insues.
02-23-2005, 02:12 PM
I'd still take it
02-23-2005, 02:17 PM
In its current condition maybe [;)]
02-23-2005, 03:50 PM
I cry every time I see this...
02-23-2005, 04:32 PM
Who was the [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]** idiot driving it? I would kill him myself. [?|]
02-23-2005, 06:17 PM
that is horrible....[:(] i still cant believe how wide the lambos wheels are....so sick
02-23-2005, 06:21 PM
Well, thats like 3 or 4 HUNDRED THOUSAND down the drain!!$@!$@%%! yikes, I am glad its not my car.
02-23-2005, 06:22 PM
Yeah I noticed that too. Very wide wheels and tires, but still couldn't get him out of that. Also I think that Lambo is a 2001 VT with the AWD.
02-23-2005, 06:24 PM
Proof that being rich enough to buy a car like that does not automatically make you a race car driver.
02-23-2005, 06:29 PM
Shit, I give the guy props for taking his ride to the track. The company specds tons of money on research and develpement on these cars, just to have someone keep it in a garage? hell no, I woulda took it to the track, too!! Just a crappy thing happened.

Yeah, the crappy thing that happened is (and not knowing the story I admit this is a guess) someone with lots of money and no training wrecked his car. Ultra-performance cars like that should come with a high-performance driving school lesson or two included in the purchase price.
Yea, but the problem is you're are assuming. It could very well have been in a school. Or just the driver getting practice. Things happen, like the unexpected oil slick.
02-23-2005, 09:21 PM
I bet you could still salvage and sell alot of that car and make more then a few bucks.
02-23-2005, 09:49 PM
I bet that dumb bastard probably just went out and bought another one.
02-23-2005, 09:50 PM
^^^ yeah, just a few....................thousands..
Man that hurts to see.... I think I need to go cry now.
02-23-2005, 10:41 PM
who's going to buy salvaged lambo parts?
I'd imagine that the only people who would need those parts are people with lamborghini's...that being said, how many people are wrecking their lambo's and how many people, after wrecking their 6-digit car, replace broken pieces with anything other than brand spankin' new ones? Just a thought
02-23-2005, 11:49 PM
maybe people who make those replica kits would use the parts? damn that sucks though
02-24-2005, 12:10 AM
:( yea it does just want to make you cry id feel just as bad about that car as i did when i screwed mine up today
02-27-2005, 08:21 PM
i would ta ke that engine and trans and mount it in the back of my focus
02-27-2005, 10:08 PM
i would take a rim, engine mounts, tranny casing, and the hood and make a sweet ass expensive living room table
03-01-2005, 11:51 AM
I agree with svto, godd for him for actualy drining it... but he should have spent more time and money on the steering wheel spacer...

Turn 12. Probably just an open trackday, they have them pretty frequently. Costs $600 for two days, $400 for just a Sunday, so that gives you an idea of the machines that show up there.
Dayam, thats an expensive track. I have yet to pay more than $330 for a 2 day event.
03-03-2005, 12:22 PM
Wow, do you run at VIR? Specifically, its $275 for Saturday, $375 for Sunday, $600 for both days.
I've done 2 event with G&W Motorsports. Their Fall Fling was between $250 and $300 dollars, and that was 8 half hour sessions of solo open track time over the weekend (as well as an included banquet and long-sleeved shirt [cool] ). I've also done a HPDE with NASA there, and had 7 25-minute instructed sessions for $300 over the weekend.
03-06-2005, 09:20 PM
A lot of hyper-exotics DO come with proper instruction, if you want it....
I know Porsche will teach you how to drive your own car out in Germany. I think the Italians do the same.....
Yes, it should be expected, these cars can do things normal cars can't, but it's all relative, most people with money who buy these kinds of cars treat it like your average middle class person would treat a $30,000 car.
03-08-2005, 09:52 AM
damn look at all you people assuming and getting pissed off that it is a crashed lambo
and assuming it's some rich [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] who has no idea how to drive
03-08-2005, 10:05 AM
With the price he can sell the parts for he could probably end up building a modified RS8. I bet it's just as fun as the lambo.... in a sports compact car kind of way....
03-08-2005, 10:23 AM
The nice thing about being rich is that you don't have to worry about things when you break them. Let's just say that Lamborghini doesn't really have a financial organization for loans and leases. It's more like buying an iPod to these guys. At least it died an honorable death and didn't burn in a garage fire or something. At least it was only a Diablo and not a Murcielago
03-08-2005, 05:40 PM
I have to say that I'm not so sad about the car being totaled, at least it died at the track where it was developed, and not out on the streets where some dumd a@* driver talking on his/her cell phone not paying attention to the road and hitting the Lambo. Hell, if I had the money I would more than gladly take the motor and trans off of his hands.[;)]
03-08-2005, 05:44 PM
thats soooo bad!
03-09-2005, 02:24 AM
Maybe he was on the track being an idiot and talking on a cell phone [:D]
03-09-2005, 02:45 PM
daaaaammn! that sux...
03-09-2005, 03:12 PM
OMG!!! NO!!! That is the saddest thing I've seen all day!!! Even after shooting Pigeons with my Paintball Gun!!! Poor Car My God!!! I'll take the drivetrain and seats!!! If I ever see that in reall life. I will beat the guy for being a Dumb Ass!!! I want to cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
03-10-2005, 02:08 PM
cant stop laughing what an idot lol 200,000 go down the whole lol
03-11-2005, 06:40 PM
Everybody has the possiblity to wreck. Professional racers get it wrong sometimes, too. I wouldnt call this guy an idiot/moron/person who cant drive just after one accident. Maybe a car in front of him leaked some oil on the way in to the pits (which the entrance to is at turn 12)??
03-12-2005, 06:36 AM
eh, thats what insurance is for.

When you take your car to the track your standard insurance won't cover you[read] .
