LONDON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 08: A car enthusiast looks at a Lamborghini Aventador in Knightsbridge on August 8, 2014 in London, England. Tourists and car enthusiasts have been flocking to the wealthy London district to see some of the world's most expensive and extravagant super cars. Many of the rich owners from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait come to London to escape the summer heat at home and to show off their cars before moving on to other European cities such as Paris and Cannes.

This clip could very well double as a Lamborghini advert.
Someone recently caught on video a Lamborghini attacking the floodwaters in San Diego, California. If you thought the driver was foolhardy, wait until the end of the footage and think again, which was the case for Mashable's Nick Jaynes.
"When I found this video of someone driving their Lamborghini through floodwaters in San Diego, I assumed it would go poorly," he said. "Even as the video began to play, I was already saying aloud to myself, 'You're doing it wrong.'"
Surprisingly, the $260,000 car was able to survive the stunt, even when, at one point, the water level was so high it lapped at the vehicle's windshield.
The driver merely powered through the water and let the engine roar a bit coming out from the deepest part of the flood, as if to say, "I am the king of the road, hear me roar!"
Indeed, the supercar emerged from the flooded part of the street as if nothing happened. No sputtering could be heard.
Perhaps this footage will convince more deep-pocketed car enthusiasts to aim for a Lambo purchase.
"The video uploaded to Facebook soon went viral and has more than 1,103,000 views," MailOnline noted.
In the wake of the Lamborghini's amazing feat, as seen on video, Jaynes offered an explanation on how the sports car managed to survive the floodwaters.
"The Lamborghini's V10 engine is mounted in the middle of the car and the air intakes are relatively high up," he clarified. "And with underbody shielding (designed for aerodynamics and not floodwater protection) that keeps water off the vital electronics and high-tech all-wheel drive, it makes for a pretty potent water walker."
Despite the evidence that Lambos are actually more resilient in high water than assumed, Jaynes said he won't do the same attempt himself or even suggest others to do the same. Would you?
The flooding was reportedly due to the strong El Nino phenomenon this year. It had "wreaked havoc around the California area, closed several major highways and prompted evacuations."
In the wake of the floodings earlier this week, a storm driven by El Nino affected the Californian coast on Thursday, causing flooding in some low-lying roads. Meteorologists predicted that the waves created by the storm may reach 16 feet.
The watery inundation was a welcome event as the state had been experiencing a long drought, which had depleted groundwater reserves and triggered conservation efforts.
