A brand-new £200k Lamborghini was wrecked in a motorway crash just 20 minutes after leaving the dealership.

The Lamborghini Huracan, estimated to cost over £200k, suddenly came to a crashing halt after suffering a mechanical failure and was hit in the back by a van on the M1 yesterday.

The shiny supercar lost its back wheel while most of its back was crunched up from the sudden and catastrophic impact.

The accident unfolded around 1pm on the southbound carriageway near junction 40 near Leeds, West Yorkshire.

PC Richard Whiteley, of West Yorkshire Police, said the Lamborghini stopped in lane three due to a mechanical failure.

PC Whiteley said: ‘It’s only a car. But on this occasion, a 20-minute-old, brand-new Lamborghini that stopped due to mechanical failure in lane three then hit from behind by an innocent motorist.’

A police spokesperson said the van driver suffered head injuries, but they were not believed to be serious.
