Who Knew You Could Drive A Lamborghini Underwater?

A Lamborghini driver in San Diego couldn't
resist plowing through a badly flooded
intersection this week. 
As heavy rain flooded San Diego streets this week, inundating cars and businesses, the driver of a $200,000 Lamborghini decided not to worry about the flooding at all.

I guess the person was rich enough to decide that if $200,000 floated away, so what.

As you'll see in the video below, the Lamborghini Gallardo miraculously makes it through the water, despite the fact it was mostly under water at times.

Apparently, the air intakes of the Lamborghini are positioned pretty high up, which prevented a stall. Cars that stall in water do so because water gets into the air intakes, causing something called hydrolocking. Hydrolocking usually means you completely destroyed your car engine.

Which is one of many reasons why it's a really, really bad idea to drive through flooded roads.

I don't think this was very good for the car, but what the hell. And don't try this at home!
