Mechanic ‘Tests’ Lamborghini, Destroys It
Published May 14, 2013
It seems to be Dead Super Car Tuesday here in China today, firstly the Maserati is removed from the roads and now this Lamborghini in Kunming.
The Lamborghini in question was being piloted by a mechanic on a test run on Kunmings Guan Nan Boulavard, he reportedly reached circa 200km/h before plowing into a Hyundai ix35 SUV which rolled over, skidded and hit an electric bike rider killing him instantly. The SUV occupants, a man and his son, were slightly injured in the collision. The mechanic was not affiliated with Lamborghini Kunming, the official designated workshop for Lamborghini models in the area and it is likely that he was working with a third party.
Pictures of the grizzly accident have been circulating wildly on the Chinese internet, with reports stating that the driver was entering into a speed restriction zone of 50km/h when the accident occurred. The police have already arrested the mechanic and are investigating the accident but lawyers have already commented via the Chinese media that as the accident occurred whilst the mechanic was technically at work both him and his company are responsible
