Wreckage of a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera that crashed in Riyadh, Saudi ArabiaEnlarge Photo
The car has sustained major damage on all four sides and is almost certain to be a write-off. Despite the severity of the damage, the wreckage is allegedly up for sale for 860,000 Saudi Riyals (approximately $230,000).
According to GT Spirit, the accident happened on a highway in Riyadh and is likely to have involved at least one other vehicle.
The Superleggera versions of the Lamborghini supercar are essentially stripped-out racers built for the roads. The LP stands for longitudinal posterior, referring to the orientation of the car’s 5.2-liter V-10 engine. The 570 stands for the horsepower, in this case metric figures. In American horsepower, you’re still looking at an impressive 561 horsepower. Finally, the number 4 stands for four-wheel drive.
Combined, these separate attributes guarantee you’ll be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.4 seconds, hit 124 mph in 10.2 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 202 mph. Anyone driving one of these brutes needs to be careful of the car’s potency, otherwise accidents like this can occur.
