    Belgian cyclist crashes Lambo

    A Belgian pro cyclist, Tom Boonen, has crashed his new yellow Lamborghini Murcielago.
    He drove into a ditch because he had to avoid a cat (well at least that's what he said)
    Pictures:




    God I like to punch that guy in the face for that
    Guess he should stayed on his bicycle

    When I first read the title, I thought that some silly ass belgian cyclist had crashed into a Lambo with his bicycle. When I opened the thread and saw the pictures, I thought "Damn, that must've been some bicycle"

    he makes enough money, it'll be fixed in no time. and it was a second hand, so the car is over it's life expectancy anyways

    btw, where are you from since you know about this?

    Exactly. Tom Boonen is that good a cyclist that repairing this will be a drop in the ocean for his bank account.

    Swerving to miss a cat, best excuse ever

    I think I woulda hit the cat if I had a ditch next to me. Then again, natural tendency is to swerve I bet.

    But who am I kidding? We all know he was going too fast in his new toy.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    He also appears to have driven back and parked it in his back garden afterwards.

    Maybe the structural damage isn't that much, I guess those glass(?)fiber panels rather break and shift then bend like a metal one. But it will be quite costly, that's for sure

    Well at least he was out driving it like it's meant to be instead of keeping it locked away in a garage.

    Stick to the Raleigh chopper. Holy hell that's flimsy. Most cars can go into a ditch and survive with a dented bumper or the bumper taken off. The Lambo bumper took a fair bit of the car with it. It's obvious he wasn't going that fast, as there's no damage to the side panels or mirrors. It doesn't look structural though. A pretty easy fix for the lambo boys compared to most other crashes.

    Whatever. It's just a Murcielago. There are loads of them.
    Plus, this is a really old Murcielago anyways. Who cares.

    some of you guys are so pompous its aggravating



    its his car, if he wants to swerve into a ditch thats his choice, its not like he was making a crappy movie and drove a CGT off a cliff for no good reason
