This is the shocking moment a crash on a supercar tour killed a couple in a Ferrari after they crashed into a Lamborghini and caused a caravan to overturn as they tried to overtake on an Italian road.
The blue Lamborghini was trying to overtake the white motorhome driving in front of it as a line of colorful sports cars advanced along the road in southern Sardinia yesterday.
But seconds later, footage shows the red Ferrari behind him trying to overtake at the same time, causing the Lamborghini to crash under the caravan, which then flipped violently to its side.
