Brand New Lamborghini Huracan Flooded in California, Owner Not Happy

The Lamborghini Huracan is the most amazing car with a V10. It outperforms many other supercars and looks like something NASA developed. But it probably won't make a good James Bond car because it's not a waterproof submarine.

Check out this video by a fellow named Matthew Trainer. He apparently had the misfortune of a completely flooded Huracan, just a short while after he bought it. Oh boy, let's hope he had insurance.

A flash flood in San Diego, California struck hard and caused millions of dollars of damage. However, those are just numbers, and they don't express the sorrow of seeing your pride and joy destroyed.

Matthew is now thinking of getting a brand new Lamborghini though the flood damage can probably be repaired.

We wonder what happens to a brand new supercar that's not working anymore. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art paid $10 million for a 340-ton rock nicknamed "Levitating Mass". It's not a sculpture or anything, just a big rock, so surely they'd want a cheap $100,000 machine that every man dreams of owning.

We don't know exactly who Matthew Trainer is, and we're not in the business of finding out, but according to the Internet, this fellow is quite controversial. Whether it's through ambition and training or fraud, he really did manage to live the dream and earn enough to buy a supercar.

"And the hits just keep on coming. We got interviewed today on three different TV stations at the same time about my Lambo Huracan and my wife's CLS63 AMG that got destroyed during the floods in San Diego,"
the fellow writes on Instagram.

On a separate note, Matt says he recently underwent surgery to remove cancer tumors that were discovered just three weeks ago, exactly when the white Huracan was delivered. That could explain why he couldn't move the supercar out of harm's way in time.

Mother nature loves to throw a spanner in the works from time to time. From hurricanes in Florida to tsunamis in Japan, destruction of personal property tends to happen when you least expect it. So which is your nightmare car-destroying phenomenon – floods, hail or tornados?
