It comes as no surprise then that the Italian thoroughbred commands a great deal of skill to drive at speed, something the 27-year old driver of this sad looking wreck has found out the hard way.
This Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, more images of which you can view at Wrecked Exotics, burned to the ground after crashing into a Chevrolet Aveo on a highway just outside of Nizhny Novgorod, Russia over the weekend.
According to onlookers, the driver of the Lamborghini lost control after speeding and crossed into the path of oncoming traffic.
He eventually crashed into the Aveo, which was carrying a heavily pregnant woman. Fortunately, all involved made it out alive.
It's yet to be confirmed but it's believed the driver of the Lamborghini had bought the car just one month ago.
