What an expensive mess.
The tough and sexy looking Lamborghini Urus is really not that tough when it ‘kissed’ a BMW wagon recently in Romania.
The brands first SUV and the only Lamborghini that has an engine under its front hood/nose and not in the rear was seriously damaged it at a city intersection. This luxury SUV costing about RM1 million before taxes and delivery costs ‘kissed’ a BMW wagon and it made headlines in the Romania newspapers as there are only a small handful of the Urus in the country and the accident took place at the intersection between Calea Vitan and Splaiul Unirii where traffic is heavy and so smart phones are plentiful to take nice pictures of this incident.
The husband of the woman behind the wheel of BMW told local newspapers how the accident happened and what happened right after.
“The driver of the Lamborghini bypassed the framed column to turn left towards the Dâmbovița quay at the intersection and he didn’t even check to make sure if there was oncoming traffic (typical luxury SUV driver), hitting the BMW wagon which was coming along right after picking up their child from a kindergarten”.
