The owner of a brand new Lamborghini has been left counting the cost after the supercar was wrecked in a motorway crash.

Police in West Yorkshire posted pictures of the remains of the sports car on social media after the shunt on the M1 near Wakefield on Wednesday.

Officers said the Lamborghini driver stopped in the outside lane due to some kind of mechanical breakdown and was hit by a van from behind.

And they said it was only 20 minutes old.

They said on Twitter: “M1 Ossett today – It’s only a car! But on this occasion a 20 minute old brand new Lamborghini that stopped due mechanical failure in lane 3 them hit from behind by an innocent motorist #couldhavecried.”

The dark grey supercar is estimated to have cost just over £200,000 – a sum which could buy you a detached house in that part of West Yorkshire.
