Staff writer

Thomas Melsens captured video of a driver losing control of a Lamborghini and smashing into a wall at a supercar demonstration in London on Sunday.

The video shows the driver manoeuvring away from other cars before losing control of the vehicle. The car can be seen veering towards parked vehicles and spinning on the pavement, before smashing into a wall and tree and sending road blocks and other objects flying.

The vehicle, a grey Lamborghini Huracan Performante, usually retails upwards of £215,000 and can reach a speed of more than 200mph, going to 60mph in 2.9 seconds. The vehicle sustained extensive damage and the front and back sides.

The event was organised by a local dealership called HR Owen according to reports.

A spokesman for the dealership told The Evening Standard they worked with police to risk assess and coordinate the event.

No injuries were reported.
