This weird thing you see above is the remains of a once beautiful Lamborghini Aventador SV before it lost control and hit a guardrail on a highway near Parma, Italy. The horror crash has torn the Lambo to pieces in a frankly amusing manner, but the important thing is the passenger cell is intact which means the occupants must have survived.
These photos show exactly the benefit and the shortcomings of a carbon fiber monocoque construction. On the downside, if you crash a carbon-tub car at anything resembling high speed the thing is going to disintegrate and break beyond any sort of repair. On the upside, the tub itself is so rigid and strong that even a crash of this magnitude does not affect its integrity. So yes, the owner of this Lamborghini Aventador SV may have lost half a million dollars in about a few seconds, but he can take solace in the fact that the expensive technology has saved his life.
At this point we should tell you that if you own one of these cars be careful with it, but that would be hypocritical because if we had one of these we wouldn’t be. A SuperVeloce Lambo is built to go fast, and if you go fast you may crash. Accepting this fact will enable you to have more fun!
