A two tone Lamborghini Gallardo supercar crashed in the great city of Qingdao in Shandong Province, causing considerable damage to the left-front of the vehicle. The Lamborghini apparently hit a barrier in the center of the road while trying to overtake another car. The driver and his son, seen here inspecting the damage, both wearing Pink, were fortunately unhurt.
The damage to the bodywork seems repairable. Lot of fluids leaking away there. Suspension likely damaged as well. In any way, fixing this Lambo won’t be cheap. When new the Gallardo went for 4.3 million yuan or 690.000 USD, powered by a 5.2 liter V10 with 550hp and 500nm, good for a 315km/h top speed and a 0-100 in 3.9 seconds.

I’d always feared that the likes of Ferrari and Lamborghini were overproducing, thus dropping the value of future models to collectors, and diluting their brand identity, but at the rate newly minted paper millionaires in China, Russia and India (and other temporarily wealthy locations) keep crashing them, future rarity will ensue, no matter how many they make.
You’d think if they were wealthy enough for a Gallardo that they would dress a bit more fashionably.
