Driving a Lamborghini without showing off is actually impossible, since this characteristic is deeply embedded in the Raging Bull’s DNA, but some people just take things one many steps too far. This is precisely what recently happened in Tokyo, with the result being one crashed Diablo.
The Yellow Diablo had attended a car event at Tokyo’s Daikoku parking area and the driver decided to exit with the doors up, as if the car itself wasn’t enough of a crowd magnet. As the car enters a ramp leading to the highway, the driver and passenger of the Diablo finally close the doors and then the man behind the wheel decides to floor it.
This was not a Diablo VT, so all the fury of that V12 placed at its center is unleashed onto the rear tires. The driver must’ve really welded the throttle, or at least fed the car with quite a lot of it, as the Diablo started oversteering to the right.
The driver overcorrected, sending the supercar spinning the other way. With the narrow Japanese roads, it didn’t take long before the Diablo and the guardrail experienced some sort of a death kiss. Unfortunately, the Lambo’s front end took quite some damage, as you can see in the video.
