Look at how the rim snapped around the hub. Hard hit indeed.

I agree, their probably gonna report it stolen or something.

The only reason they fled i think is because the driver (owner of the dealer) might have been slightly intoxicated, in which case insurance wont cover the car. It doesnt really hurt when its a 10g bimmer, put a 300K plus lambo hurts.

So he took off, and now they will tell the cops that someone stole it from their lot.

How does one go about stealing a lambo? Don't they some crazy anti-theft installed. One could only imagine it's got a sophisticated alarm and anti-theft system with the car being $300k+

What a tool, its not like the VIN isnt registered. But definately will be an insurance scam, like the poster said above. They will probably report it stolen to get it written off.

Fair enough, but someone with the know how of disabling an alarm like that and stealing a lamborghini doesn't take it for a joyride, they steal it to chop it up or ship it out.

The 401 and Leslie is quite a foresty area. Going east after you pass Leslie, there is like some soccer field and bunch of forest around it all the way to Don Mills. Even after , there is so many factories. No wonder why cops could not find anyone.

his whole point is its ridiculous if he isn't caught for an insurance scam because a Lambo is not a easy piece of machinery to just hop in and drive away with. A $400k+ car isn't a K car you can shove a screw driver into the ignition and turn key and drive off

Pretty damn good if he gets away with it, it's not what you know, it's what you can prove

I also saw another 640 lp with plates parked at the hotel near Yorkville... same color... so there must be few of them in GTA.

Thanks for clarifying. That exactly what I meant. It's not very plausible as an insurance scam because these cars are stolen as easily as Honda's.
