That’s not gone well. Watch this Lamborghini Huracán crash at 200 mph

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if you were in a catastrophic high-speed Lamborghini crash, we have a video to share with you. Back in September, gave us images of the first major Lamborghini Huracán wreck that took place in Hungary. Now, Hungarian authorities have released a video that was taken by the vehicle’s passenger that puts us in the cabin right up to the point of the crash.

For you squeamish types, both driver and passenger survived (somehow), and the video shows nothing graphic in nature, just the panic of the two occupants as you hear the situation go horribly wrong.

Lamborghini Huracán crash

Handily both incriminating the driver and giving us a good sense of what happened, the passenger records the driver’s speed as he pushes the car upwards of 200 miles per hour. Keep in mind the M7 Motorway in Hungary has very typical highway regulations, so this isn’t a de-restricted stretch of road where something like this is allowed. The speed limit, to put a little perspective on things, is roughly 80 mph.

The Huracán can put out 610-horsepower out of its 5.2-liter V10 engine. The power is sent to all wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, where a multitude of sensors monitor the conditions to properly distribute the torque. We’ve been fortunate enough to experience the Huracán in the wild as well as on the track, and while we recognize how complimentary it is to the driver, that civility goes away when attempting to reign a monster in at the 200 mph mark.

What sadly transpires is the inevitable: control is lost, the car plows through a barrier, ending up in a ditch, where it later is consumed by flames. The driver of the car is most certainly going straight from the hospital to the courtroom, for which he should quite frankly feel lucky to find himself instead of in a large freezer bag.
