There are Lamborghinis and then there are Lamborghinis. Many, if not most, are coddled their whole lives, living decadent lives of garage- and trailer-bound pampering, rarely, if ever, seeing the kind of use for which they're ostensibly built. This one, however, has gone well beyond the usual bounds of Lamborghini use.

So far beyond, in fact, that it's encroaching on Land Rover territory. It's not every day (or every year) you see a stickered-up supercar fording a foot or more of water with apparent calm and ease, but perhaps it should be more common. The car appears to make it through none the worse for wear.

  1. Really this car is ideal for shallow water crossing. Consider the location of the air intakes, up high, along with the under-body pan the engine is pretty safe to stay dry.

    Bad stuff?

  2. What this video doesn't show you is the owner then spends $120,000 having inch of the car cleaned with Tibetan mineral water and buffed with Kemp's Ridley sea Turtle Wax.
