In a viral video, the sports car driver lost control over the expensive Lamborghini Huracan Performante as he was trying to cross a narrow lane, but instantly spun out of control and crashed.
A driver can be seen driving the £250,000($280,000) sports car at its launch event to show off to a crowd of admirers.
When he drives off his brand new car, which was less than even a minute, he loses control and smashes into a tree and a brick wall.
The crowd left shocked and rushed to the car but fortunately, no pedestrians or spectators were standing in the way of the Lamborghini when it drove into the side of the road despite the scores of enthusiasts watching the supercars.
It is said that the driver escaped unharmed after he slammed into the wall, which obliterated his grey supercar. According to reports, the driver was left in tears after damaging the expensive Lamborghini.
A spectator, who asked not to be named, heard the crash from a nearby street at around 1:30 pm.
He said: ‘As soon as I heard it, I rushed over to where it happened.’’
‘’The drivers were not participating in drag races, they were just making some noises for the crowd and accelerating away fast.’’
‘’The crowd was loving the cars making noise and driving away fast from the event, but everyone seemed shocked and sad to see the crash.’’
A spectator who runs an Instagram account called London. Car spots told The Evening Standard: ‘’He was revving and decided to do a launch control, at which point he lost control because of his cold tires.’’
‘’He hit the tree, went up the curb and hit the wall.’’
‘’I’m pretty sure he was crying when he got out, it was easily a write-off.’’
Event organizers HR Owen said: ‘’We are concerned to hear about the accident which happened to the car on its way home after it had left the event.’’
‘’HR Owen takes safety extremely seriously and puts in place every possible precaution, with the event itself on Sunday being fully risk assessed and coordinated with the police.’’
