A brand new 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 was destroyed by a Chinese journalist during an unfortunate test drive.

The accident occurred yesterday morning on a wet highway near Hangzhou in Jiangsu Province. The test drive was organized by Lamborghini who invited local press to have a look at the facelifted (and last) Gallardo.

As these low-res photos show, Gallardo's front and rear were completely ruined. The accident came as a surprise since the car was driven by a 30-year old journalist known as Zhu who is believed to be an experienced driver. Luckily, he managed to escape from the crash without any injuries. We can't say the same thing about the Gallardo, a car which in China costs the equivalent of 536,000 USD.
