I know I know, some of you will say that speed kills but if you ask Jeremy Clarkson, he claims that speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary, that’s what gets you. Obviously right? Well, it seems this record-braking LSR Honda, known as a highly-modified first-generation Honda Insight, takes a serious roll nearing 200 mph where its driver, Brian Gillespie, fortunately lives to see another day only suffering ‘minor injuries’.

According to the Southern California Timing Association website, the vehicle previously broke the 200-mph barrier in a previous run.

Hit up the astonishing video below to see the full crash.

I am sure everyone reading this would agree with me in saying that the new Lamborghini Aventador is an astonishing sports car even if you are not a fan of raging bulls. Despite the Aventador not being the fastest exotic car around, it still deserves some type of exclusive recognition for being one of the most talked-about exotic cars of this decade thus far.

When the official announcements of the new Aventador made its way onto automotive enthusiast sites such as AutomotiveAddicts.com, we all reiterated Lamborghini’s claimed top speed of 217mph for Lamborghini’s newest creation. Well that top speed may be true to many owners of the new Aventador but now the guys at Sport Auto pegged the Aventador at 230mph (370 km/h).

For proof of the 230 mph run, here is the exclusive Sport Auto Aventador making rounds at Hockenheim followed by a top speed run below. Enjoy!
