Underground Racing’s Twin Turbo Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera is no stranger to internet fame. We reported when it broke the 250-mph park out at the Texas Mile and now we’re sad to report that the vehicle suffered a momentous wreck, rendering it totaled. Luckily the driver was able to walk out on his own safely.

It’s a no-brainer that testing your vehicle to excess of 250-mph speeds can be dangerous. But it’s great to see what the safety of the driver was still a priority when building this high horsepower exotic. The Gallardo did several flips before it came to a stop, and clearly started to flip at still a high rate of speed.

There are contradicting reports on what really caused the accident, but we think it’s not even worth arguing over – so long as someone figures it out on future high speed exotic builds. We’re just glad the driver walked away safely.

    er, i think its clearly obvious that its the parachute that caused the car to go off track.
