Supercar Fail: Double Yellow Lamborghini Aventador Crash
On a mild June afternoon, the drivers of two yellow Lamborghini Aventador supercars went out for a drive in Singapore. However, these supercars weren’t out together for a drive. Fate brought the matching pair of yellow Lamborghini Aventadors together that day, and not in a good way. It isn’t clear if the two drivers knew each other, but it can be assumed the cars were matching for a reason.
A Lamborghini Aventador Crashed into a Lamborghini Aventador
From the photos shared on RedChili21, it appears the first Aventador was sitting at a light, waiting for it to change. At some point, the second yellow Aventador came up behind it and failed to stop in time. Thus, a double supercar crash. Soon after, the owners removed the license plates from the supercars to avoid detection. That did not work.
While the two Lamborghini Aventador S vehicles look alike in color, it goes beyond that. The vehicles have similar black wheels, side skirts, rear diffusers, and wings. Of course, this brought out all kinds of people to watch the kerfuffle. With cities shut down due to the pandemic, there was not much else to do.
A Lamborghini Aventador goes for over $400,000 on a good day, which is likely much higher in a place like Singapore.
An epic double Lamborghini Aventador crash
The vehicle that was stopped at the light sustained a lot of damage to the rear end. It appears the bumper, quarter panel, and diffuser were squished during impact. A fire broke out at one point before the Lamborghini Aventador was loaded onto a flatbed tow truck.
One can assume there are only so many yellow Lamborghini Aventador S supercars with black wheels driving around Singapore. Video footage showed one of the supercars driving around and cutting off drivers in earlier weeks.
Perhaps the driver thought the Aventador was his ghost driver in Mario Kart. Just trying to beat his previous best lap time while the roads were empty. Or so he thought. The Aventador comes equipped with around 729 hp, which is enough power for anyone to get in trouble with.
Purchasing a car in Singapore isn’t easy
Purchasing any car in Singapore isn’t easy, let alone a supercar like a Lamborghini. According to Singapore Infopedia, drivers must have something called the Certificate of Entitlement (or COE). Drivers must bid on the COE to register, own, or use a vehicle in Singapore. It lasts for a period of 10 years and can cost upwards of $50,000.
Back in 1990, officials put this system in place to extend the limited resources available. Such limited resources include roads, parking lots, and demand for vehicles. Officials feared that traffic would not be sustainable if everyone could drive. The COE system is used in conjunction with a congestion tax called Electronic Road Pricing. This system is similar to our tolls in the U.S., except this system is mandatory to use the roads in Singapore.
The cost of owning any car in Singapore is extremely high, but purchasing something like a Lamborghini Aventador could cost an exorbitant amount. It is always a good idea to exercise caution when driving, even on seemingly empty streets.
