It is indeed a sore sight to see a Lamborghini crash into a tree. On Tuesday morning [6 April] pictures of a black Lamborghini Huracàn Spyder crashed into a tree, in the leafy suburb of Llandudno in the Western Cape, had social media tongues wagging.
The accident scene caused a backlog of traffic on the corner of Llandudno Drive and Victoria Road along the Atlantic Seaboard, because road users slowed down in disbelief to catch a glimpse of the wreckage. It is unclear how the accident occurred but there were no reports of injuries in the crash.

Videos circulated on social media show the extent of the damage to the multi-million rand vehicle, which has been available for sale in South Africa since 2016.
Some social media users questioned how the vehicle crashed into the tree. Others said the car is sophisticated enough to detail how the crash happened.
“Weather it’s a rental or the individual owns it….weather it’s insured to the rafters or not….. Those vehicles would most certainly comes with a ridiculously accurate and traceable GPS tracking system which would make the best account of whatever happened. And in the event it is found that the driver was reckless then no insurance will agree to pay out…… They may pay a rental agency yes because they would have the kind of bussiness insurance to cover themself especially with a hyper car but that person would most certainly be in a whole world of trouble and accountability with the insurance company and saps and if it’s their personal vehicle then their insurance would decide weather or not they are going to pay for the right off and banks would decide weather they would let them continue to pay the installment or make them whole liable because they wrote it off,” said one Facebook user.
That is a costly mistake to make, and even a harder one to explain.
