Sprightly Seniors React to Speeding in a 650hp Lamborghini Aug 26, 2016 by Ian (Driver Weekly)
One Lamborghini, three seniors, and a trip on the highway. The result? Priceless. The dedicated car enthusiasts behind Donut Media puts three grandmothers in the passenger seat of a 2005 Lamborghini Murcielago and see what happens. Don’t worry—the driver, Corey Hosford, is a racing professional with Formula Drift and a performance driving instructor. He knows what he’s doing, and while it would have been amazing to see the spectacle of smoking tires, it’s probably for the best that Hosford didn’t burn rubber with these grandmas in the car! Hosford took each of the sprightly seniors out for a quick spin in the Lamborghini and it’s a pretty funny show: from their initial surprise at the sight of the sleek supercar, to their confused inspection of the interior, to the combination of shock and delight at the unbelievable power behind the 650hp V12. All three of these enthusiastic seniors had a wonderful time and some touching words for their driver. It’s true, with experience comes wisdom, and an experience like the raw acceleration of a Lamborghini is worth a whole lot of wisdom. This just goes to show that some of the rabid disagreements between car enthusiasts and everyday drivers—economy vs. power, practicality vs. fun—are moot when you put a layman inside a supercar like the Murcielago. Everyone can enjoy the simple pleasure of speed and acceleration—there’s a little pearl of wisdom from your elders.
