Lamborghini vs. BMW — It’s Not What You Think

07/10/2012 @ 11:27 am, by Jensen Beeler19 COMMENTS

A crime against motorcycling, one Lamborghini Murcielago owner may have inadvertently thrown some more fuel on the car vs. motorcycle fire with this latest bone-head move. Losing control of the Lambo outside of a BMW dealership in Como, a certain Italian driver is responsible for sending nine german two-wheelers to the scrapyard. The motorcycles were parked outside of the dealership’s showroom, as the driver and his occupant careened through the row of bikes.

It’s reported by that the driver of the Lamborghini moved into the oncoming lane of traffic before losing control of the car, which then crashed into the parked motorcycles. Nicking nine bikes in total, two were customer bikes, while the other seven were demo units. The crash also injured three people, though none of them were seriously hurt. Cracking the showroom window of the dealership in the process, it is estimated that the total damage from the crash is €500,000.

    Well, Lambo is owned by VW…who also owns Audi…who now own Ducati. I see a conspiracy here :)

    500,000 euros worth of damage?

    Does half that include the car, or damage to the other parties in total…?

    I’m sure the damage to the Lambo alone will cost more than writing off all 9 bikes.
    Hell, the drivers wristwatch probably cost more than any one of the bikes.

    The lambo only suffered minor damage compared to what it would have if it would have hit 9 Harleys. Those tanks would have destroyed the car.

    Me thinks that had it been a HD shop the driver may have suffered more injuries after the owners of the bikes came outside and carried out thier own search for compensation in a way that insurance companies wont provide,know what I mean?
    This is what happens when you give control of such powerful vehicles to people with out the required skills to operate them properly,and I,m not talking about the BMs

  • Shame it wasn’t a Harley dealership…

  • Cj

    What a shame. If it had been at a Harley dealer he would have just done 9 people a favor.

    I guess that just proves that Lambo cars are really durable and can stand itself against these motorcycles. I just hope that all the vehicles can still be repaired.
