No Bull: Lamborghini Aventador Test Drive Ends in Fire (Video!)

A young California “Internet millionaire” took a new Lamborghini Aventador for a test drive–a joyride that ended when the $376,000 exotic sports car abruptly burst into flames! It is unclear exactly what caused the incident, though not everyone is capable of handling a beast that catapults from 0-62 in less than 3 seconds! This is an isolated incident, hopefully not the start of another story like the infamous Ferrari 458 fires!

More Expensive: A Hermes Handbag or Brand New Ferrari?

Would you prefer a new handbag or a brand-spanking-new Ferrari, if given the option? If you chose the Ferrari, you may be shocked to learn that for the price of 5 or 6 new Ferrari 458 Italia cars, you can get one $1.9 million-dollar Hermes handbag. Gulp.

The million-plus Hermes handbag

Hermes creates some of the most luxurious and coveted items on earth, but the 4 new designs unleashed are expensive, even for them! The miniature totes are crafted from gold and then bedazzled with thousands of precious stones…think of it as the ultimate unnecessary accessory.

These million-dollar mini-bags are designed to be essentially a piece of flair—worn around the wrist as a sort-of bracelet. Designer Pierre Hardy spent two years perfecting these designer bags, the Kelly and the Birkin, and each will only be produced 3 times.

Who will the buyers be? According to Hermes CEO Patrick Thomas,
 “I have no idea. But maybe they will have two bodyguards!”

$500,000 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Crashes

David Thompson likely did not have an exotic car crash in mind when he dropped $100,000 on modifications for his $400,000 Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Unfortunately, he allowed his rally car driver son, Ian Thompson, and his navigator Karl Francis to drive the machine at a racing event…leading to what is likely a total loss!

The celebrity rumor mill is spinning faster than the tires of a Bugatti because a man claims the actress clipped him in the knee with her Porsche while attempting to escape a paparazzi swarm in a Los Angeles club parking lot.

Lamborghini Aventador Goes Country—Crashes Into Farm!

The Lamborghini Aventador packs a serious power punch, nailing speeds of up to 217 miles per hour. So it comes as no surprise that some of these supercars have already been crashed, like the latest in New Zealand! It seems that the Aventador was too much power for the driver to handle, as he ended up tearing through a farm, taking out a fence via a cow pasture…brutal!

This appears to be the 3rd Aventador crash so far–follow links for the 1st Aventador crash and the 2nd Aventador crash!

Snookie Crashes Custom Escalade…Makes World Prettier

Jersey Shore’s favorite little Guido, Snookie, began showing off a very horrific custom Cadillac Escalade in February…topped off with fluorescent pink accents…absolutely everywhere. It was not a tragedy when the reality star crashed the Escalade during the very same month–only that it was not a total loss. It seems she hit another vehicle in it while filming Jersey Shore, so I smell another publicity stunt.

Invisible Mercedes Baffles and Beckons Onlookers

Mercedes is making luxury hybrid competition green with envy with its fascinating new futuristic F-Cell ad. The F-Cell is a hydrogen fueled Mercedes–watch as the car disappears to tout the brand’s new zero-emissions approach to the hybrid market!

The F-Cell generates electric power while producing little more than pure water and thus zero emissions. It is a 2.0-liter petrol car with a 100-kW/136 horsepower electric motor…not exactly heavy artillery in the awesome power department, but good for the environment as a daily driver.
