If it’s legit and not a set-up, this is a pretty amazing stunt. Not cool at all. But still sort of amazing…
Posted by Josh Navarro @ajourneythroughtime. Judging by all the comments it has received on Instagram — many of them are very upset by the stunt — I’m not sure how long he’ll keep it up.

I’m thinking it’s a setup. It’s just too perfect, including the Jake’s waiter’s reaction.
Really? I don’t think many people (even filthy rich people) would put their $400,000 car at risk simply for the sake of going viral. The people that pulled this stunt certainly planned its filming but I seriously doubt they had the owner’s consent.
This appears to be the same car, though there are other images of it with those plates going back to at least 2008 on Google.
Regardless of whether it is staged or not it is awesome.
To clarify, if this guy rode over the car without the owner’s consent you think it’s awesome?
When I use the term “awesome” I do not necessarily mean that it is good/legal, and so on. The word “awesome” to me simply means “awe-inspiring.” And this fits the bill.
why would you need the owners consent?
Because if the driver is in on it, then he gave permission for the stunt to take place. If he did not, then it’s an act of vandalism and/or criminal mischief.
if they didn’t damage the car then it’s not vandalism or criminal mischief…
@Editz – yes I do. It is a mostly harmless prank. And I don’t have a lot of sympathy for Lamborghini owners. The owner is not exactly a “salt of the earth” type, now is he. I have no sympathy for the defenders of this unknown Lamborghini owner’s rights either. No one cares when I get run off the road but a non-violent stunt gets lots of people up in arms.
Finally the cinematography is too good. Perfect angle, observers reactions caught just so, etc. It is staged.
“Not cool at all.”
have to disagree, it’s totally cool… they hopped up onto the strongest part of the car and didn’t leave a mark… totally legit…
can’t tell if it’s staged… obviously the cyclist planned it because they set a camera on the ground across the street… nothing else looks staged to me…
as a pedestrian I walk over illegally parked cars all the time…
and having called the police when a road-rager and his kid were throwing things at me on the freeway, they don’t care at all unless there’s visible damage… they will not send an officer to the scene unless people are hurt or property is damaged…
Ya. Dig it. Staged. I’d like to see that with a Hummer.
Was the car in a bike lane… if so then bravo good sir. Peg grind it next time though.
says here that the front window was damaged… not cool if that’s true…
although I find it hard to believe that there was enough weight put onto the front window to damage it… modern front windshields are very strong, especially on super-cars like this… and he glided over it without putting his full weight on it…
Seems like the owner didn’t care much, if at all:
awesome, thanks for posting that…
