Lamborghini Destroyed in NJ Crash [VIDEO]

You probably saw the story of the luxury sportscar pile-up in Japan from a couple weeks ago where over $1M worth of vehicles were wrecked — and now a $275,000 Lamborghini was totaled in North Jersey Monday morning.

35-year-old William Sherman of Short Hills, NJ, was arrested and charged with DWI after his bright yellow (well, formerly bright yellow) 2002 Lamborghini Murciélago was totaled in a fiery crash on I-78 in Somerset County early Monday morning.

As you picture your mini van sitting in your driveway, the Lamborghini Murciélago is a 575-horsepower, V-12 beast capable of hitting 205 MPH (it runs quite nicely on 100+ octane gas). It sold for about $275,000 in 2002 — new models now sell for over $410,000, as long as you can get one since only a few hundred are produced every year. I was going to buy one, but it only gets 11 MPG — that was a deal breaker for me (insert sarcasm here).

No, this isn’t video of the crash, but it is video of a Lamborghini Murciélago on a test track. The next time your stuck behind someone on the Black Horse Pike going 40 MPH, play this video in your mind:

If you own a Lamborghini Murciélago and feel the urge to do something stupid, please contact me — I’ll gladly take good care of it for you.
