A Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spyder has been badly damaged after being involved in a highway crash over in the UK. However, this doesn’t appear to be a case of an overzealous driver losing control of the powerful supercar.
According to the WYP Roads Policing Unit, the driver of the Huracan Performante had only picked up the keys to the supercar 20 minutes before the crash and was traveling on the M1 motorway near Ossett when the Lamborghini suffered some kind of mechanical failure and he was stopped in one of the center lanes.
Soon after, a van smashed into the rear of the Huracan, leaving it with huge, and in all likelihood irreparable, damage.

Much of the rear-end has been crushed, in particular the driver’s side section of the rear. For example, one of the rear wheels, hubs and suspension parts have been ripped from the Lamborghini. In addition, the rear bumper has been smashed to bits, the driver’s door has been damaged, and the rollover bars were deployed.
Look closely at one of the images and you will also notice than some suspension damage seems to have been sustained up front. With all that damage, the car will probably be declared a write-off by the insurance company.
We don’t have any photos of the van that was also involved in the crash, but The Daily Mail reports that the van driver suffered minor head injuries. There is no word on whether the driver of the Lamborghini was injured or not.
