A pair of high-powered Lamborghini V12 supercars have been caught on camera after an embarrassing bingle on the streets of Singapore last month.
Although it appears to only be a low-speed impact, the two cars – worth in excess of 1 million dollars combined – are likely to require repairs adding up to thousands of dollars.
If the same bumper-to-bumper crash happened in an everyday hatchback, the repairs would likely cost less than the insurance excess.
But given both cars involved are Lamborghini Aventador V12s – listed from $788,000 each in Australia – the repair bill for both vehicles is likely to cost the equivalent of a new hatchback.
The image was posted on a Facebook page called SG Road Vigilante, a group that aims to highlight bad driving behaviour in Singapore (pictured below).
The Facebook page includes images of people parking poorly by taking up more than one spot, and broadcasts complaints and videos of supercars being driven dangerously.
While no-one enjoys seeing a fender bender – especially involving such exotic machinery – it’s a timely reminder accidents can happen to anyone. And regardless of wealth, not everyone has the skills to match high-powered machinery.
Earlier, a video (pictured below) had been posted on YouTube trying to identify a Lamborghini V12 being driven dangerously in Singapore, cutting into traffic on a roundabout. It is unclear if the Lamborghini in that video is one of those involved in the car park bingle, however the similarities are striking.
Even though these Lamborghini drivers might be having a bad day, chances are they are having a better day than most car enthusiasts.
Singapore is one of the most expensive countries in the world to own a car. So if they can afford to run a pair of Lamborghinis in Singapore, they’re clearly financially comfortable.
Furthermore, taxes on motor vehicles are equivalent to 100 per cent of the purchase price – in other words the cost of cars doubles in Singapore – because the government wants to discourage motor vehicles and incentivise public transport.
