The driver of this 1200 hp Lamborghini Huracan had a lucky escape when the right rear tire gave up at 205 km/h.
The on-board footage shows driver Fredrik Sørlie hustling the twin-turbo Huracan around the Nurburgring. At around the 11 km mark, the car goes into a spin and barely misses the barriers. High track temperatures are believed to have caused the tire failure. As the driver was chasing lap times, the car was fitted with slick tires.
Here's the video from yesterday's attack run where we had a tire burst. Thanks to our skillful driver Fredrik Sørlie the car was saved, and most importantly, no injuries!Go hard or go home👊🏻#buildingdreams #lamborghini#zyrusengineering
