The driver of a Siyaya minibus taxi would not have been blamed for wishing to be swallowed into the ground whole after he crashed into a multi-million rand Lamborghini Urus on the streets of Sandton.
The Urus is punted as the world's first super sport utility vehicle, with the experience of driving it offering the ultimate fusion of luxury, comfort, sportiness and performance.
It's little wonder the incomparable Italian exotic car makes it as the single most prized possession for anyone lucky enough to own one.
Pictures of an accident damaged Urus, including one from @ujudas_iscariot, have been making the rounds on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

"If you think you’re having a bad day omunye ushayise i Urus nge Siayaya," the tweet was captioned.
The intersection where the collision happened was not immediately clear, but a crowd of curious onlookers soon flocked to the scene.
Ultra-expensive Lamborghini Urus models
The specific Lamborghini comes in three models. Namely, the Urus, Urus Pearl Capsule, priced from R4 385 000, and the Urus Graphite Capsule, which comes in at a cool R4 450 000 for the standard version.
Not to anyone's surprise, the tweet caused quite a stir online as Saffas reacted to the cringeworthy scenes in horror.
Many tweeps took the mickey out of the driver of the unroadworthy-looking taxi at the centre of the expensive mess, with the tweet soon attracting 4 000 likes.
Expensive collision causes a frenzy
Briefly News took a tour down the Twitter streets to bring readers all the amusing comments to the tweet.
"I once bumped into a Range Rover Sport nge Renault Kwid."
"Taxi drivers are unbothered by accidents the taxi boss is gonna phone the Urus owner and threaten him."
"A reasonable person cannot expect a taxi driver to pay for accident damage c'mon."
Social media reacts to R1 Million car broken in half in crash
In related news, Briefly News previously reported that an expensive vehicle was put on sale after it was involved in a serious car accident.
The Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray was split in half in the crash and, according to a social media post, the car’s parts are now for sale.
In a post on Facebook shared by AZ Cycle Parts, the car's LT2 V8 engine is priced at R280 000. The bronze Corvette, which is priced at about R1 million, can be seen in pictures missing its front end in what must have been a seriously hectic crash.
One of the largest pieces currently up for sale is the shell and frame with the front frame extensions cut off due to damage.
Although it remains unclear where the crash took place, the post reveals that the car has only 7 700km on the clock, while the dual-clutch eight-speed transmission is also up for sale for R100 000.
