In Italy, collisions between two- and four-wheeled vehicles are par for the corse. If there are no injuries, non c'e' problema, as they say.
Throw a Lamborghini Aventador into the mix, however, and the moto-passenger's scraped knee suddenly becomes less of a problem than, say, a supercar that costs tens of thousands of euro to fix.
Just such an accident happened near the Imola Autodromo in Northern Italy's Emilia-Romagna province, bruising a young motorcyclist and knocking a few expensive chunks from a bright orange Lambo.

Comfortable for anyone
Nnjoy the water but don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional kayaks? This is portable, lightweight, and easy to store when not in use.
The crash probably wouldn't have attracted much attention normally, but it unfolded in front of a group of junior high school age children returning from their daily lezioni. A bunch of them stopped to gawk at the spectacle of a toppled motorcycle and an orange Aventador, drivers door stretched skyward and bits of itself strewn about the roadway. We can only imagine the gesturing and catcalls that ensued.
Luckily, no one was injured, although we're sure that in addition to his bumps and bruises, the motorcyclist felt a sting of fear that he might be responsible for repairing a Lambo. But that's up to la polizia's interpretation of the accident. (Hat tip to Baber K. Khan!)
