Luckiest squirrel on earth dodges Lamborghini - click above to watch the video after the jump

The Internet is chock-full of adorable pet videos and Jackass-style human clips, but it isn't very often when the animal is the one surviving the ill-advised act. That's typically not our cup of tea anyway, but when you throw in a spanking new Lamborghini Murciélago and a happy ending and we're likely to bite.

Beyond the jump is video of a squirrel that cheats death by Lamborghini. The earth-hugging bull is minding its own business at over 100 miles per hour during The Ultimate Lamborghini Experience 4 event at California's Fontana raceway when said squirrel decided to cross the track. What comes next is a bit of a miracle, as the squirrel manages to time its crossing in a most perfect manner. We're not sure who is luckier – the squirrel or the LP670-4 SV driver – but it does look like the furry critter may have had its tail docked a bit in the encounter, so let's hope he's okay. Hit the jump to watch the video for yourself.

UPDATE: Video is now embedded after the jump.

      This is an outrage! We should get PETA involved! People for the Ethical Treatment of Automobiles.

        I just watched again... There's a little tumbleweed of fur at the bottom of the screen at the 5 second mark.

      Lucky squirrel, I say lucky lambo. Could you imagine what it would cost to fix the front splinter on that car.

      Man. That squirrel has got some nuts. And the driver of that lambo must have experienced a pucker factor so violent that it needed to be surgically corrected.

      You can see the tip of his tail float down and stop on track at the very bottom of the frame.
