Firstly, birthday gift for the son, but dad was behind the wheel?! Secondly, crashed at a mere 100mph on a runway?!!! The mind boggles...

EDIT: OK, it says the son was disabled so that explains why he wasn't the one driving. Still though 100mph on a straight... I guess it's true what they say, when you get into a Lambo, the car's got 100 ways lined up to kill you.

The Gallardo is one of the tamest Lambos I've ever been in.. Nothing like the finicky monsters from the past.

Hopefully he recovers and learns from this..more hoping he recovers though.

Always sad to see someone hurt in an accident, and he was trying to do something nice for his son too. Now... if this was his plan all along and he "didn't succeed", then it is a different thing all together.
