Ferrari LaFerrari is one of the most exotic and expensive supercar around the world. Recently we have seen a few images on web of a LaFerrari crashed in Budapest. Now we have got the video footage, where the crash scene and crash moment is visible. As per the video, it is surely the LaFerrari driver’s fault. Despite the poor quality of the video emerged online, it is visible that the hybrid hypercar from Italian giant Ferrari was trying to accelerate and overtake between three other cars on a six lane road in Budapest, the Hungarian capital.
Just after the LaFerrari driver tried to accelerate and overtake, he lost control. The car jolted towards right and crashed onto four other cars parked beside the road.
What will do, if you are sitting behind the wheel of a gorgeous Lamborghini Aventador? Well, we assume you might take the car for a scorching track ride or you can burn the highways or even you can cruise through the city traffic and grab lots of appreciating curious eyes. But, certainly you wouldn’t want to take this car for a bumpy off roading drive, will you?
But in this video, the owner or the driver behind the wheels did just that. It looks somewhere in Middle East and as you know plenty of people there spend enormous amount of money behind expensive cars. But as it seems, some people might have a little brain for driving knowledge. Probably that is why; this guy was driving this exotic car in the desert sand, like it is a 4x4 SUV out there. As it seems, the owner or the driver of this car is not concerned about the potential scratches to this car or even any mechanical damage too, which can be easily caused by the sand grains.
Remember the dude who employed a few people to smash his Lamborghini Gallardo using hammers in China? Or the guy who smashed his BMW M6 in Frankfurt? Such incidents are back to haunt the car world. A chinese man has smashed his Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG with a golf club. And just like the previous incidents, reliability issues and poor customer service led to the incident.
The 33 year old was protesting after his car stalled three times. He took it to the dealer who promised to exchange the car if the incident repeated. Unfortunately, it did. When he went back to the showroom, they told him to wait for the higher ups who had gone on a business trip.
Frustrated, he took a golf club from the boot and smashed the AMG. He smashed the body panels, windows, headlights and tail lights.
Such incidents are heart wrenching to see.
Based on the S-Class sedan, the S 63 is a high performance version tuned by Mercedes’s in-house tunners, AMG. The sedan comes equipped with all the latest luxuries and gadgets found in the normal sedan. A few design features set it apart from the regular car. It is powered by an AMG 5.5-Liter V8 Biturbo petrol engine producing 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque. It is mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission and power is sent to rear wheels. AMG’s all-wheel drive system 4MATIC system is available as an option. The car accelerates from a stand still to a 100 kmph in 4.0 (all-wheel drive) seconds and goes on to an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph. It can be increased to 300 kmph with the optional AMG Driver’s Package. The car return 9.9 kms to a litre of fuel.

After the incident Abdul went and broke the windshield of thus with a bat, which took the matter further. In return Santosh climbed on to the bonnet of Abdul’s car in an attempt to stop him from driving away, although Abdul just became desperate and when he tried to evade the scene in full speed, Santosh lost control and fell on the bonnet.
From the CCTV footage we can see Santosh is clinging to the wipers of the speeding Swift. Abdul drove the car desperately for about 300 meters to pull Santosh down from his cars bonnet, while the bus driver clinged to the wipers in a desperate attempt to save his own life. Abdul even neglected the pedestrians and a police warning also, which we can see as a yellow raincoat wearing traffic police person is trying to stop the car. The entire incident was recorded in the CCTV, and Mumbai police didn’t waste time to nab the convict after four days of the incident. Santosh Shimikar got some minor injuries on his head and legs, he was released from hospital after primary treatment.
