No Lamborghinis were harmed during the making of this exhibition

Last week, Classic Driver dealer and fashion label L’Art de L’Automobile held a crash-test-themed exhibition in Paris to showcase a new t-shirt. But rather than choosing a worthless hatchback to take centre stage, curator Arthur Kar opted instead for a sensational Lamborghini Diablo SV…
