Lamborghini Aventador Split in Half Waiting Inside a Service Is Not That Sad

When you’re a petrolhead, seeing an Aventador split in half resting on a service floor is something that can ruin your day. But we haven’t brought you these images to push you into a negative mood. On the contrary.

Seeing the two halfs of the Bull that’s Raging no more makes us think about the safety of its occupants. And since the car ended up in such a state, it means the safety structure has done its job.

You can check out this Aventador crash (coincidentally it was also a white car) to see how a Lamborghini can end up in such a state.A bit of tech talk about the Aventador’s structure
The Lamborghini Aventador uses a carbon fiber monocoque. We are talking about a central piece that includes the occupant cell, tub and roof of the supercar. The machine also features two aluminum front and rear aluminum frames.

Sant’Agata Bolognese takes pride in the assets of the Aventador’s structure, namely an “an impressive combination of extreme torsional stiffness of 35,000 Newton meters per degree and weighs only 229.5 kilograms (505.9 lb).”

While we don’t have any information on the crash that led to the death of this Aventador, supercars such as this one are built to split like that. Such a construction allows them to dissipate a part of the energy generated by the crash, which leads to a reduced threat for the driver and the passenger.

As for the Lambo itself, a five-year-old could probably tell you this is a write-off. Then again, there are plenty of uses for such a mechanical monster. For instance, we’d use this as an art form - who wouldn’t want a Lamborghini, albeit with a split personality, adorning their office?

As for the salvage industry, the parts do have a market on eBay, but, if you happen to own a load of Lamborghini tech bits, don’t expect to make money out of them overnight.
