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.

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
