Stunning Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante destroyed in crash


The Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Spyder Performante is unquestionably the ultimate expression of what a convertible supercar can be. Despite it being almost exactly the same as its coupe sibling, Lamborghini did implement a number of unique features on the Spyder variant, but unfortunately a crash in Houston means that there is one less of these incredible cars roaming American streets.

As you can see from the following pictures, the crash was quite serious and took place at around 9pm on Westheimer Road, in Houston, but fortunately, no occupants were killed in the accident although the female passenger had to be cut out of the wreckage by the Houston Police Department. She complained of neck pain, but was able to move her arms and legs, as well as hold a conversation.

It?s not yet known exactly what caused the crash as the investigation has not yet began in earnest, but an eye witness did report seeing the car traveling at high speeds through the city streets before flipping for a reason also not known. Turns out, the female driver of the Performante was racing another Lamborghini, also being driven by a female.

This latest crash marks yet another exotic meeting its fate this week, after an extremely-rare One-77 was involved in an incident just a couple of days ago.
