Driver crashes £150,000 Lamborghini into front of luxury car showroom damaging two Ferraris
A driver accidentally crashed a £150,000 Lamborghini into a luxury car showroom
The man, believed to be a photographer working on a photo-shoot, lost control of the expensive motor
A red-faced driver had to be treated for shock after accidentally
a £150,000 Lamborghini - into the front of a luxury car showroom.
The man, believed to be a photographer working on a photo-shoot, lost control of the expensive Lamborghini as he moved it outside Amari Supercars in Preston, Lancs.
The smash, on Tuesday afternoon, left not only the Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe wrecked but also damaged up to two Ferraris inside.
Eyewitnesses claim the car, which can accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 3.4 seconds, suddenly lurched forward and crashed through the showroom's front window.
One described the aftermath as "mayhem", adding: "It had only just happened prior to me getting there. This Lamborghini was embedded in the front window.
"Everyone was in a state of shock. It looked like it had jumped over others inside the showroom and was a right mess. I've never seen anything like it
"I think the young lad hit 'launch control' or something - that's why it suddenly shot forward."
Another said: "The Lambo was in a right state - and so too was the bloke who'd been driving it.
"An ambulance came and he got in with his face buried in his hands as if to say 'What have I done?'
The orange Lamborghini, which has a top speed of 202 mph and was up for sale at £152,995, looked to be badly damaged.
Bystanders said at least one Ferrari, possibly two, had also been damaged in the crash.
One car believed to be in the showroom at the time was a 1981 521BBi Boxer, a collectors' item with a price tag of £274,995.
Amari director Saba Syed declined to discuss what had happened, although she dismissed the crash as "a minor incident."
She added: "It is not something I wish to comment on further.
"There was absolutely no injury at all. An ambulance was called for the wellbeing of the driver."
