You Won’t Believe What This Lamborghini Huracan Driver DidPosted by: Kenny Chan onMay 5th, 2014
This is basically the automotive version of a paparazzi-celebrity confrontation, we’ll call it the carparazzi. Automotive photographer Jason Thorgalsen spotted a Lamborghini Huracan cruising around on the highway in Florida and with camera gear in tow, quickly turned around on the highway and caught up with the driver to record some video and to take some shots of the beast. That was all good until the driver of the Huracan apparently got tired of the publicity and called in some muscle (more like fat) in an Audi as backup.
Here is Jason’s view on the whole situation taken from his YouTube video:
There were some pretty interesting series of events today which all started from me seeing a picture of the Lamborghini Huracan on facebook this morning!
This test mule has been spotted all over the Gulf Coast of Florida since the beginning of 2014 and after months of hearing about the car I finally saw it driving on the highway with my camera in hand. The driver didn’t seem to mind people driving along the side of him taking cell phone pictures but he obviously had an issue seeing the camera I was using to take pictures and video of the car.
After driving along for awhile an Audi A8 showed up and immediately cut me off. After trying to block me from making any lane change I got around the Audi to continue on my way. As I approached the exit with the 2 cars behind me I was amazed the Audi forced his way on my right hand side and blocked my car from getting off the highway as the Lamborghini pulled in behind me. I have seen plenty of prototypes driving on the road well before production so I was shocked the driver of the Lamborghini was exiting the vehicle on the side of the highway and approaching my car. He immediately started yelling at me trying to intimidate me which I couldn’t be bothered by but when he reached inside of my car and shoved my camera he escalated the situation which I decided it was time to call the police before he continued any further. Like the coward he is he promptly got back in the Lamborghini when he realized I was calling 911 and took off while the Audi sat there for a few minutes blocking my car from exiting the highway.
I hope Volkswagen Audi Group sees this video and shows who they have representing their brand. What a shame!!
Check out the video below, who is in the wrong here? Should one expect some unwanted attention when cruising around in a brand new Lamborghini Huracan? Either way, pretty crazy series of events. It almost seemed like Jason Statham was arriving on scene in the Audi… until he got out of the car that is LOL.
