It feels like a rocket booster kicking in when you punch it - at least that’s what I’ve heard; I wouldn’t know since I drive a Chevy Malibu.
That may be why Lamborghini is one of the few car manufacturers that suggests new owners take Lamborghini driving lessons before hitting the road.
Officers found the Lamborghini on the side of La Jolla Village Drive near La Jolla Scenic Drive North about 11:45 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego police.
Police couldn’t say because the couple who bought the spirited sports car only hours before it was found deserted along the side of the highway could not be found.
Police told local news stations that the Lamborghini still had its paperwork from the purchase from a dealership 80 miles away a few hours earlier, showing the name of the owner, but authorities have not said whether they believe the owner was driving at the time.
Witnesses claim to have seen the car zipping along at a high rate of speed before the driver lost control and skidded into a median, totaling the 2008 Lamborghini.
Dealerships often suggest new owners complete Lamborghini driving school where they are awarded a diploma before attempting to harness the high-performance sports car’s power.
In this case, a misdemeanor traffic citation may be the least of the owners concerns since they had just ponied up about $220,000 for their new ride.
