    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)

    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"
    Voehan rähmä!

    Se on nyt nimittäin sillä lailla että...

      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.

              The car appears to have not so much crashed as fall apart

                Fuck the cat, save the Lambo! Oh wait, there was no cat.
                "That said, I believe going forward that the world is going to be full of these nasty, difficult, unclear conflicts that are going to be energized by poverty, by stateless borders, and by the proliferation of state-like weapons in the hands of organizations that are not in and of themselves states. Typically in the past, these kinds of weapons could only be afforded by states, by countries. Now they will be used on battlefields by rebels, by rogue organizations, even by criminal gangs." - General James F. Amos, the 35th Commandant of the United States Marine Corps

                      He also appears to have driven back and parked it in his back garden afterwards.
                      ...I'm meant to put something here?

                        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.

                              He must have crashed in the Emyn Muil.

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