I LOL'd at the police officer in the picture taking a shot with his phone to probably show to his mates or post on Facebook.

220,000 for a 2008 model? Seems like they overpaid.

It's $200 K not G like in the way it is written in the title of the source.

Copy/paste is hard.

They are the same, just a different way of saying it, at least here in the U.S..
220k and 220G (the G is short for grand) are both $220,000

Supercars aren't exaclty easy to handle, especially for 99% of the population. You have to know what you're doing, otherwise it's not very forgiving...

Murcielago is one of my dream cars. This hurts my heart a little. Give it to me instead--I'll treat it right!


I kind of lost my infatuation over cars with doors like that for one. Not sure what safety standards they have on the cars, but I recall seeing this one image via reddit of two people burned alive, trapped inside the vehicle as it had flipped over. I'd dig around for it, but it's not safe for work anyway. Just search "lamborghini nsfw:yes".

LOL. I know exactly where this took place. But, I didn't hear about it on the news.

Dumb rich people in La Jolla :laugh:

Since when do you have to hit someone for something like this to qualify as a hit-and-run?

These people aren't idiots. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out they were intoxicated.

The article also reminded me of this:

A hit and run also includes structural accidents too. So basically, if you flee the scene of any accident, it's considered a hit and run.

The police should give me the Murcielago for free. I would much rather have the Aventador, but I am not going to complain.
