A Playboy model has driven her Lamborghini Huracan Spyder into a pool thanks to high heels.
Generally speaking, cars don’t like water. Supercars such as the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder usually have carbon fiber exteriors that are impervious to rust, but their engines and various other components are still made out of materials that don’t like H2O.
So driving your Lambo into a pool? Generally a nono.
Playboy model, TV host, and according to her Instagram, “actress” Soraja Vucelic drove her Huracan into a pool last week while vacationing in the South of France. At the resort town of Cannes, where she seemed to be performing a photoshoot, Vucelic drove up to a pool in her Lamborghini and then suffered a wardrobe malfunction. Her right foot slipped thanks to some high heels, which caused her to release the brake pedal and her Lamborghini to wander into the nearby pool.
According to Vucelic’s Instagram, it was all an honest mistake. “When your high heel slips from the brake and the Lambo ends up in the pool,’ she wrote.
Good to see she’s upbeat about thrashing her $200,000 Italian supercar.
Then again, she can likely afford a replacement. According to CarScoops, she’s currently dating the son of a Russian oligarch, and they can make Lamborghinis appear as if by magic.
A couple of things to note. First, water damage from a pool isn’t the same as water damage from the sea, provided the pool wasn’t filled with saltwater, of course. The salts can react poorly with metallic components, so if it was clean and chlorinated water then the Spyder might be salvageable.
Also, the second video you see after the Huracan was being lifted out of the pool indicates this particular Huracan is from Montana. If you can afford to fly your Lambo all the way to France from Montana, getting a new one local is probably not a big deal.
And third, she’s already got a new whip. It’s a Maybach, naturally.
