Tesla Model S was officially revealed today in Hawthorne, California. As you can see the company has moved on from plug-in electric roadsters to developing plug-in electric sports sedans and we have to say they done a pretty good job.

We don’t know if this is a new kind of trend among Murcielago owners in Russia but it seems like not a day can go by without a Lambo getting smacked way beyond repairman. It could very well be the Russian way of sustaining the Italian supercar manufacturer through these troubled times who knows! Compared to the Murcielago mentioned in yesterday’s article, this one tells the story of a much more powerful impact as bot front and rear are seriously damaged. We just hope we won’t have to publish another “Murcielago crash” article tomorrow…

Apparently according to the YouTube video description this poor Lamborghini Murcielago found its end on the streets of Stavropol, Russia. Even though the front of the Lambo in almost intact, we cannot say the same about the rear, and if you look closer to the right hand rear wheel you can easily understand that the Murcielago is now sitting right on its trans-axle and is pretty much totaled. As expensive as that might sound we dont know what kind of feelings we should express towards this incident, the only thing we could suggest is that any supercar owner should follow high-performance driver education courses before or even after purchasing any typeof…
