It's a sad day indeed when a dream machine like this ends up on a scrap heap as a complete write-off.

These sad images of the Murcielago, which has a price tag of between R3-R4-million, were taken in Cape Town.

According to Wheels24's sister newspaper Die Burger this Lambo collided with a wall in Kloofnek Road, Tamboerskloof, a suburb in the Cape Town city bowl.

The accident happened in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Apparently the car is registered in the name of the sex shop chain Adult World.

Die Burger says that the driver of the car ran away from the accident scene.

The police believe speed and alcohol could have played a roll in the cause of the accident.

So, we invite you to check out our gallery as we pay homage to this once proud babe magnet.
