Moment mindless driver steers ‘ultra-luxury Lamborghini supercar’ through wild flood waters from Tropical storm Eta
SHOCKING video shows the moment a Lamborghini driver braved Tropical Storm Eta's flood waters on Sunday as the storm made landfall in Florida.
As Eta unleashed torrential rains and battered the Sunshine State with hurricane-force winds, the driver decided to take the luxury sports car for a spin in Miami.
Footage shared on Twitter – which one user said originally aired on WSVN news – shows the marigold car wading through the flooded streets of South Florida at a traffic light.
"#Lamborghini or Submarine?" the man captioned his tweet.
The yellow Lambo then pulls up beside a black car and a red car before speeding off through the flood waters.
Waves are seen shrouding the hood and front end of the car, then surrounding its sides and wheels as it glides through the water.
Some social media users were amazed at how such an expensive car could ensure the tropical-storm conditions, while others were unfazed by the jaw-dropping clip.
"That is amazing. How could that Lambo keep going?" asked Dinah Voyles Pulver.
"It's like a scene from a Bond movie," said David Smith.
"I'm expecting scuba divers to start firing missiles any second."
"I bet that fine-tuned Italian engine will just *love* all that dirty water," quipped Chris Martinez.
"This video truly encapsulates South Florida," said Brian Entin.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said that Eta made landfall on Sunday night over Lower Matecumbe Key and is now near the coast of southwest Florida.
Residents in the Florida Keys braced themselves for "life-threatening" floods and even tornadoes as a flash flood warning was issued for the region on Monday, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Knee-deep water was reported in Davie, while rainwater flooded downtown Fort Lauderdale, the National Weather Service said.
More than 35,400 households mainly in Miami-Dade county are without power due to Eta as of 10am Monday, the Sun Sentinel reported.
About two feet of water has flooded the neighborhood streets.
The storm walloped the Gulf of Mexico with winds of 60mph and is projected to remain just shy of hurricane strength, with maximum sustained gusts of 70mph.
