squirrel survives death by lamborghini murcielago

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.
