    I was on my lunch break when I happened to drive upon the scene of this accident...

    This happened on the 45 north feeder road in between Rankin and Richey. Which is about a mile down the road from Lamborghini of Houston. Turns out this car was street racing an 06 Dodge Viper GTS and they both somehow lost control. What makes it even worse is that the lamborghini was previously owned AND SIGNED by Mario Andretti himself! It was a mint condition 1989 25th Anniversary version with less than 6,000 kilometers on the odometer. The car was just purchased from Lamborghini of Houston earlier today and one of the Lambo techs was driving it. He was on his way to deliver it to the new owner that supposedly paid over $100k for it.


    Here is a link to some pictures the dealership had posted on it's website. This is what the car looked like this morning lol. Notice the signature...

    ...it looks like the viper's wheel came off in the middle of the race! notice the lambo started out on the left but ended up on the right. the old school lambo was also pullin away from the newer viper :burnrubber:

    Wonder if he got fired? :D



    and why the hell would a "tech" be delivering the vehicle? I'd better be picking that thing up myself if I paid that much for it!

    I'd guess the tech was fired, and sued.

    I know I'd demand both. Probably sue the dealer too.

    He deserved it.
    If you drive and act like an idiot you deserve to be treated like an idiot.

    I have absolutely ZERO patience for stupidity!
