In the accident that left this Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 split in two, the 40-year-old driver miraculously remained unharmed. He even called his insurance while stepping out of the car (or whatever was left of it). The accident took place last night at around 6pm local time in Thailand. The car crashed with the test plates.
My first day being part of the Gumball 3000 rally with team Anastasia Date has been insane. I have seen more Ferraris than I can shake a stick at, there are beautiful women everywhere, and I got to see a Lamborghini Aventador set fire to some bushes with the fireballs it was shooting form its exhaust. Yes, I got video footage of the fireball.
The day started with a quick look around the area before hotel checkout, and then we met up with the girls and headed over to a local import dealer that sells Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and lots of other exotic metal. Then we made it back to Ocean Blvd to see our car get unloaded from the carrier truck.
After all that there was a big dinner, and since Deadmau5 is in the rally, he put on a big concert at the hotel. If you want to see photos of some of the crazy cars and pretty girls, plus watch that Lamborghini fire video, just look after the jump. Sadly I don’t have any photos from the concert.
As a whole, the Gumball 3000 has been an interesting ride. The experience of being immersed in this world of wealth and extravagance has been jarring in the most entertaining way.
But I don’t want to spoil all the fun of the trip just yet. You have to wait for my full piece next week. Until then, enjoy these cool photos and that incredible Lamborghini video.

We already knew that the Lamborghini Urus would go on sale for the 2017 model year, but the SUV’s powertrain was still a mystery, with both naturally aspirated V-10 and V-12 options on the table. A twin-turbo, V-8 powerplant has also been in the rumormill, as was a hybrid drivetrain, but it appears that the Italians might be forced to go with the former in order to meet the rigorous global emissions regulations that are looming in.
“An SUV could be a turbo engine for the first time for us,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann told Auto Express, while head of R&D Maurizio Reggiani hinted the company may be forced to drop turbocharged units into its models by 2017.
Although the representatives declined to go into specifics, Audi’s new twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 mill is the most likely candidate for the Lamborghini Urus, which will also share underpinnings with the upcoming Audi Q7 and Bentley SUV.
The said engine currently pumps 560 horsepower into the RS6 Avant and the RS7, but output could be increased to reach the 600-horsepower mark, given Lamborghini’s desire to roll out the sportiest SUV on the market.
