Lamborghini Gallardo Crashes Into GT500, GT500 Almost Cares

This crash happened during the Formula GT500 Copa--that's Formula GT500 Cup-- in Columbia, and demonstrates that even with AWD and a slew of electronic nannies, high-powered exotics can be a handful. Just ask this Lamborghini driver, who stomped on the gas only to have the Raging Bull go sideways and collide with a GT500. Oops.

So obviously, the race was over for the Gallardo. But even though it got knocked up a curb and suffered some superficial damage to the body kit, the GT500 simply lifts for a second and continues. That's a Mustang for you--as complicated as a hammer and  twice as hard to break. The first video shows the crash, and the second shows it from the GT500's perspective. Enjoy.

Michael Fournier (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 17:59:37 -0700): HAY HAY HAY that is great the Lambo took the worst of that one. Did the mustang even get a dent?

Michael Fulcher (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 19:59:02 -0700): It might be the GT 500 but it's still fiberglass. That whole side just might need replacing.
Marty Babbitt (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 23:15:26 -0700): none driver
Mike Tierney (Tue, 07 Aug 2012 23:24:58 -0700): I'm telling you, I hit two Deer with my Ford Mustang and NOT A SINGLE DENT! DOn't MESS WITH THE BEST! FORD BABYYY

Michael Lynch (Wed, 08 Aug 2012 08:05:22 -0700): So, why did he quit racing? A smashed in door should not have stopped him. Proves my point, Just Because you can AFFORD a Lamborghini, does not mean you have the necessary skill to drive a Lamborghini. Put the Lambo Driver in the GT500, you get the same result.
Gerard Bragg (Wed, 08 Aug 2012 08:51:33 -0700): That Lambo may be a bull but the Ford is the Matador. Oley!
Tony Fernandes (Fri, 10 Aug 2012 22:49:44 -0700): The Mustang should have slowed down once the Lambo started sliding.
