Video captures driver wrecking $280,000 Lamborghini outside supercar meet

A Lamborghini driver leaving a supercar meet-up in London over the weekend wrecked his $280,000 coupe in the most embarrassing way possible.

Video shows the Huracan Performante lined up next to another Lamborghini on a narrow, two-way road when the driver floors it and pulls away.

Three seconds later the car spins out and slams into a tree and a brick wall as he approaches a curve and appears to slow for oncoming traffic.

No one, including the driver was injured in the accident, but the car was left with serious damage everywhere but the left side.

Easy fix - it's already in primer.

Wonder what he will say to his insurance company when they ask 'were there any witnesses?'

Presumably, the grey colour was to be less conspicuous.

Nobody helps the driver; everybody's too busy filming...
