Journalist totals Lamborghini Gallardo

A Chinese journalist has smashed a Lamborghini Gallardo during a media launch outside the city of Hangzhou.

The driver reportedly lost control of the new Lamborghini while driving on wet road with other journalists.

The all-wheel drive Gallardo spun, wiping out both the front and rear. The driver reportedly was uninjured, but the car -- which costs 3.3 million yuan (about $530,000) in China but sells for between $400,000 and $578,000 here -- will be written off according to Car News China.

The report states that the car was the newly-facelifted Gallardo that debuted at Paris motor show in September last year.

It says the 30-year-old journalist, whose name is listed only as Zhu, was an experienced driver.
