Despite the recommendations of the local Australian authorities, the driver of a Lamborghini Aventador S and a Porsche 911 Turbo S insisted on going for walks on the wet roads. It was certainly the ride too many: one ended up in a tree, the other in a truck. No injuries but two wrecks are to be deplored.
Severe rain storms in Australia made the road conditions extremely dangerous. Residents are advised not to drive in this weather unless absolutely necessary. But that didn’t stop these two supercar owners from taking a Porsche 911 Turbo and a Lamborghini Aventador for a ride on waterlogged roads. And guess what? The result is a disaster. It takes skill and experience to tame a supercar at high speed in dry conditions. But in conditions as wild as the storm that swept across Australia’s New South Wales, you have to be a real professional driver … or crazy!
According to the Daily Mail, the two supercars were hired for a wedding. The driver of the black Porsche 911 Turbo lost control in Greystanes and crashed into a stationary truck, dismembering the front of the car and turning it into a wreck. The photos show the extensive damage, and it’s not pretty. A few miles from the 911 Turbo crash in Horsley Park, the driver of the Lamborghini Aventador also lost control and hit a tree. The impact was so powerful that the tree was knocked down and the passenger door torn off.
Only material breakage
Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in these supercar crashes, but the two occupants of the 911 Turbo were taken to hospital. The Porsche is certainly considered a wreck at the present time and certainly as much for the Italian supercar. Even if it can be saved, the repairs will certainly be horribly expensive since a new Lamborghini Aventador S is worth over $ 400,000 in Australia. Obviously, combining high speed driving with heavy rain was not a good idea.
The extreme storms that ravage New South Wales have been described as “a one-time event in a century”. State Emergency Services Commissioner Carlene York is warning people, asking them to avoid driving at all costs: “When the precipitation hits this level, your vehicle could go into aquaplaning… You can’t control what’s going to happen. You put your life and that of your passengers in danger as well as that of my emergency services and other people who will have to come to your aid ”, she adds, rightly so.
