Three-car smash in London involving a 217mph Lamborghini Aventador

31st March 2014

A three-car smash on one of London’s most expensive streets happened on Mother’s Day afternoon, involving a £300, 000 Lamborghini Aventador.

It is believed that the matte black supercar collided with a Mazda 5, on Sloane Street, Knightsbridge, and then went on to hit a stationary BMW.

The Lamborghini suffered serious frontal damage with bits of its body work strewn all over the road.

The young owner of the top end car has been previously filmed driving aggressively in the past with flames firing out of its uprated exhaust.

Dozens of curious bystanders surrounded the wreckage to take pictures and record the badly damaged vehicle.

The owner of the BMW said; “We showed up about three hours after the incident and there was a letter on the windshield. The Lamborghini was being towed away and the owner came up and explained what happened. He was really apologetic.”

The Lamborghini Aventador is powered by a 6.5 litre V12 engine which develops a staggering 700bhp. It will accelerate from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds and go all the way to 217mph – more than three times the speed limit on normal motorways.

Just minutes before the crash the driver was filmed being driven in an aggressive manner. The owner was breathalysed however no arrests were made. The Lamborghini was loaded on to the back of a lorry ready to be taken away

Metropolitan Police closed the road in both directions for almost an hour, causing major disruption.

Paul Wallace, from website the Supercar Scene said he saw the accident just after it happened. “I got a call to say someone had reported the Lamborghini crash on Sloane Street, and had heard this particular Aventador had been racing all day.”

“This car is known in London but I had never seen it before. From YouTube videos he enjoys to drive it fast and rev the engine to create exhaust flames. It’s a very nice example of the Aventador so I wonder whether we’ll see it on the road again. The owner seemed young and was with a group of friends after the crash who all seemed relaxed bearing in mind the wreckage on the road.”

“I have never seen a Lamborghini in such a bad way, and couldn’t really believe my eyes or ears when I heard about the crash.”
