Tropical Storm Eta brought floodwaters to parts of South Florida Sunday and forced at least one yellow (rental?) Lambo to turn into a submarine to get through the rising waters. The storm brought 65 mph winds and heavy rains.
One Twitter car expert named Cathy Adams says this Lambo handled just as it was designed to do in flood waters. “Pay attention car dummies. Since the design of the car was made for racing it’s front cut thru the water like it’s supposed to cut thru air,” Cathy wrote. “Since the rear, where it’s engine’s located, is higher than the front it’s no surprise that it had no problem with the flooded streets!”
I’ll take Cathy’s word for it. There may very well be an Italian designer smoking a cig in some Lambo office building studying how his design could be improved for performance in future hurricane events. People out there paying $200k for a car want to know it will perform when the waters start rising. It’s actually a new selling point you rarely see from car manufacturers, but that may become more popular now.

Now take a look at this Mini Cooper. Not so lucky. Engine up front. Not capable of submarining through floodwaters. It’s owner will have to tow it into the shop while yellow Lambo guy will be popping off at the club tomorrow morning at 3:30 a.m. SMH…save your money and get a Lambo!

Get a Lambo & you won’t be stuck in Brickell dealing with the constant floodwaters. SMH!
