It's unfortunate that wealth doesn't always come with common sense or logic.

You can afford an Aventador which means you can afford to take it to the track and abuse it there. Why on Earth would you drive like an idiot on public roads? If the point was to show off because he enjoys the attention then that accident serves him right.

Yes, he was speeding but the Mazda driver also just turned way out to the left and kinda stood there. Anyways lucky no one was hurt.

I agree, they seemed to both be at fault. Neither seemed to be doing anything too egregious on their own, but the slight speeding of the Lambo combined with the other vehicle's entering traffic blindly - when taken together - became a problem. Anyway, poor Lambo.

Not forgetting that it's a 30mph limit, and tha fact there is video online of the same car racing moments before the crash on some websites, I think the Mazda driver has a case!

Excuse the advert you have to watch before the video!

Unless he was racing the bicycle behind him, I'd have to say he was more speeding than anything

For a little while, he was driving an Airventador.

Poor 330d.

I'd like to see the look on the Mazda's driver's face when he/she is going to call his/her insurance people to tell them that they collided with a Lamborghini.

He was making a right turn, for us Americans that would be a left turn. I didn't see anything that the Mazda driver did wrong.

Sad for the Lambo but the driver should have seen that Mazda... I think it's lack of driving skill on Lambo driver's part. If you're going to drive like a douchebag in crowded downtown areas, at least be alert and observant, or better yet don't do it at all.

That would be at a junction with lights etc. This was just a side-road that he was exiting from and on to a main road. The Mazda should never have been anywhere NEAR that position. I live in London so can say this for sure.

I do agree that the Lambo driver had been driving like a fool in other clips etc, but his entry speed in this video did not look particularly crazy and as I said: the Mazda should never have been there - he/she has zero right at that point. I personally think 90% of the blame lies with the Mazda driver. I've seen scenarios similar to this (without the crash) many times while driving in London. The general public can't drive for shit.
