Lamborghini Murciélago SV fords Greek border crossing – Click above to watch video after the jump

Jon Olsson is a Swedish skier with a passion for X-Games medals, double flips and exotic automobiles. He's owned BMW racers, an Ultima GTR, a Nissan GT-R, a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Lamborghini Murciélago Super Veloce, among other bits of precious metal.

Olsson and his Murci SV recently took part in the latest Gumball 3000 Rally, where the Italian supercar was made to do things other Lamborghini owners would never do to their prized possessions.

As part of the Gumball, Olsson and other competitors needed to go from Turkey into Greece, and the border crossing was a bit flooded with no way around it. Apparently, the front end of the Murciélago SV is perfect for fording shallow bodies of water, because Olsson entered the water and the nose of the big bull pushed a safe path back to dry land. Don't try this at home.

Click past the jump to watch the wince-worthy quick clip of the fording Lambo, and be sure to click through the gallery below for more shots of the mighty Murci.

      Wince worthy? What's wince-worthy is when rich people buy a car like this and leave it sitting in a garage for all eternity, never even once giving it a chance to stretch its legs. If I had that car (and the money to fix it what I break), that is what I would be doing with it.

        Driving through less than 1 ft of water slowly? Cool bro. I'd drive fast and pick up girls though. :)

      Should have skipped it across like the Lambo in the opening of Speed Zone!

        I remember watching that years ago and I could never remember what it was called! Thanks so much! haha

      I think that's a shallow pool with chemicals to prevent transmission of agricultural disease. They used to be all over the Balkans when I lived there. Part of driving in a normal environment, which the Lambo should be able to handle.

      Jon Olsson is the man! The article doesn't mention - but he's also had a ski box/carrier on the top of almost all of his exotics (sans the pure racecars).

      I would take this to its limits, but this is a little too far...

      Well, that's the advantage of having the air intakes way up on the rear haunches.

      Its just water, nothing a good car wash and a paint correcting can't fix.

      The clip makes it appear that he drowned out, & probably did.
