This Unlucky Valet Driver Crashed a Pro Fighter’s Lamborghini Into Another Lamborghini
If you’ve ever had a bad day, just be thankful that you are not the unfortunate valet driver who accidentally crashed a customer’s Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae into another customer’s Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae. In case you were wondering, a 2022 Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae has a starting MSRP of $498,258. So imagine the level of stress and panic being built up knowing that you damaged two cars with a combined value of about $1 million!
To make matters worse, the Lamborghini also belonged to professional Jiu-Jitsu fighter Craig Jones. Talk about a recipe for disaster.
According to the video posted by Jones, both Lamborghinis were rentals, so at least the situation didn’t fully hit rock bottom for the fighter. But we still see a still-running blue Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae Roadster rear-ended into a purple Ultimae Coupe. The valet is heard saying he was attempting to park the car when he hit the gas pedal by accident, rather than the brake.
Lamborghini Aventador Ultimae’s are not like your standard Lamborghini. The Ultimae can produce 769 horsepower from its 6.5-liter V12 engine, all while weighing only 3,400 lbs thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber anatomy. Combine the two, and you have a machine capable of going 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, and maxing out at 221 mph.
Lamborghini only produced 350 units of the Ultimae Coupe, and 250 units of the Ultimae Roadster. The last time one of these rare cars appeared in the news for receiving damage was when they sank to the bottom of the ocean along with many other rare, exotic cars on the Felicity Ace cargo ship in 2022.
While most of the damage appears to be cosmetic, it’s fair to assume that nobody involved in this incident wants to pick up the check for repairing both cars.
