Chillest motherfuckin driver.
The driver poses with the burnt-out car.
At least they got out OK...damn.
I wonder if he bought a different car from the dealer, maybe something less incendiary...
This is the kinda shit I expect to see in a goddamn Wile E. Coyote cartoon, not in real life!
Who in their right mind pay £250 000 for a fucking car? For that money you can have a custom car built and tuned to outperform those vehicles. I've seen a Toyota Starlet outrun a Ferrari.
Lambos and ferraris are a waste of money anyway imo.
Go ahead and buy one, idc, but even if i had the money, I wouldn't get one.
And this is why Italian cars are best. They have soul, they have personality, and they're exciting even when they're just putzing along!
Money well spent 'far as I'm concerned.
It's their money. Who are you to tell them what to spend it on? If they want to modify some god-awful Toyota to go fast, let them. If they want to buy a Lamborghini, let them. It's not your money, why do you care?
Funnily enough the modified Toyota will be a heap of junk. It will only go fast in a straight line, it won't be reliable, it won't stop for shit, it will sound awful, and it's more likely to go up in a ball of flames than the Aventador that this thread was made about!
It's not the top speed so much as how it gets there. Getting pinned to the seat, hearing that monster engine literally scream, THAT is what buying a car like this is all about for gearheads that can afford them.
I'd hazard a guess that maybe one out of ten supercars ever breaks 110MPH. Most of them probably never even break 85, and there's quite a few that never run at all.
Some people want a to spend the time and money making a production car outrun a supercar.
And then some people want a supercar.
And then some people's supercars burn to the ground.
I know somewhere Top Gear is having a heart attack.
Some people want the whole package with a super car. The looks, the speed and the pedigree nature of the brand. It's an exclusive club some people want to be in. There is nothing wrong with modifying a cheaper car for performance and looks too, it's just not what some people want from a car
I honestly don't buy the concept that just because someone is good at moving money around in the stock market and learning how best to cut jobs and get bonuses in the business they run that they necessarily "earn" or deserve the wealth they accumulate.
Thread about car on fire turns into class war and socialism. Only on Facepunch...
It both looks and acts like an Nvidia card.
Cars aren't about numbers. Most people who can even afford a car like this can't even drive it above 200 km/h on a track.
Don't you have a dream car that costs more than those "DIY cars" like the starlet you said?
a Lamborghini is a luxury car
key word: luxury
unless you plan on becoming a professional racer, you don't buy a lambo for it's engine.
So....is violently going up in flames covered under the warranty?
And really a toyota? You couldn't say like a Subaru or something?
