Lamborghini Huracan, they shouldn't end up like this (photo: Israel Police spokeswoman)
The assassination attempt that happened last night in the tunnels of Route 6 in which two men were stabbed and shot in a Lamborghini looks like a scene from an action movie, certainly when it has all the elements of a chase and shooting scene in which one of Israel's fastest and most expensive sports cars stars.
In photos from the scene of the incident, the car, a Lamborghini Huracan model, is seen next to the tunnel wall and on the windshield what appear to be gunshot marks.
According to the reports, the path of the car and its passengers was blocked in a planned ambush and then the assassination attempt was carried out.
The Huracan, which, like the rest of Lamborghini's models, is not regularly imported to Israel, is considered the bread and butter car of the Italian manufacturer.
Where in the center of its chassis resides an atmospheric V10 engine with a volume of 5.2 liters.
The same engine that was also borrowed from Audi's R8 supercar (Lamborghini is owned by the Volkswagen Group).
The technical data is 610 hp which provides acceleration to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 325 km/h.

As mentioned, there is no official importer of the Italian sports car manufacturer in Israel, but there are already around 30 Lamborghini cars from the last decade driving in Israel, and a few more individual classics.
In the past, the Ministry of Transportation allowed imports into Israel that were not in the hands of new immigrants, only cars whose manufacturer had an official representative in the country.
However, in 2013 the ministry changed the procedure, following an appeal by the contractor Oded Shariki to the then Minister of Transportation Israel Katz, to allow him to import a Rolls Royce Ghost to Israel.
The ministry then agreed to allow the import of cars such as Rolls-Royce, which also has no official importer in Israel even though it is owned by the German BMW, on the condition that the owner of the vehicle presents a commitment from the manufacturer to treat the vehicle using the "airborne doctor" procedure, and to send a mechanic and spare parts whenever the need arises.
A similar permit for the import of Lamborghini cars to Israel is currently held by "Bavarian Motors", which is also recognized by the manufacturer as an official marketer of its cars in Israel.

About 16 Huracan model cars are in Israel (photo: manufacturer's website)
Since then, more Rolls Royce cars have arrived in Israel, and as mentioned also dozens of Lamborghini cars.
The most common model of the manufacturer in Israel is the Hurcan supercar, with 16 units, followed by 10 off-road vehicles of the Uros model.
In addition, there are 4 more cars driving in Israel on the more expensive Aventador model, which continues the Kontash lineage.
The price of the Hurricane in Israel starts at about 1.5 million shekels, while the Oros costs about 2 million shekels.
Aventador costs about NIS 2.5 million.
At least one Israeli, a businessman from Jerusalem, owns both an Aventador and an Uros.
The car that was involved in the assassination attempt is from the 2019 model year and was imported to Israel as a personal import as used.
According to the records of the Ministry of Transportation, her license was valid until April 2022. Although it is reasonable to assume that this is currently the least of the owner's worries.
