Lamborghini Gallardo Plunges Off 250 Foot Cliff onto Golf CourseMay 13, 2009
Last month, a $300,000 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 was being driven at high speed around a twisty road encircling a golf course in Marbella, Spain. We're told the 28 year old driver was warned several times to slow down and almost ran over a pedestrian shortly before losing control and plunging off a 250 foot cliff.
In what can only be described as a scene from an action movie, the passenger jumped out of the car in mid-air. That decision probably saved his life since the Gallardo crashed roof first onto the golf course, killing the driver instantly. The passenger was seriously injured.
Here are exclusive photos of the aftermath:
You can see the Gallardo created a huge divot on impact (left) before tumbling down the rest of the cliff (right). The sound of the impact must have been incredible, especially when you consider how quiet golf courses usually are
Possibly the largest divot in golf history. Luckily, no one was playing this hole at the time
This is the corner where the Gallardo lost control and plunged off the cliff (very scary)
This vantage point really shows how steep the cliff is
