Last week the news was all about the Chicago Bears’ Lance Briggs crashing his Lamborghini, but just miles away in downtown Chicago some hooligans were crashing not one but three Lamborghinis. That’s the report from Cars.com’s Iver Walkoe, who looked out his window one morning to see the scene captured in the images you see here.
Some back story: The crew of the next Batman movie has been all over the city (even right outside the Cars.com offices) filming next summer’s surefire blockbuster, “The Dark Knight.” Now we know there will be at least one scene in which a dark gray Lamborghini Murcielago – roughly $300,000 – will be crashed. We’re guessing by Bruce Wayne, who piloted a Lamborghini roadster with two memorable passengers in the first movie.
Check out more photos below of the scene unfolding. There’s one demolished Murcielago on the left, one with cameras on the right and a third out of picture. A brand-new and completely unharmed Bentley Continental GTC was also spied nearby, but we’re not sure if it’s in the movie or is just Heath Ledger’s new personal ride.
