Lamborghini crash outside Lidl attracts huge crowd as it goes up in flames

A Lamborghini crash outside drew a massive crowd of people who stared in disbelief while the designer car went up in flames outside a Lidl.

The black car, of an unknown model, was filmed on fire after crashing into bollards and a sign near the shop in Hayes, west London on Friday (November 5).

Stunned people watching speculate on how much the car was worth before it was destroyed, with one man guessing "one million".

"Oh my days," says the guy filming as he zooms in on the damage to the street and the smoldering wreck of the sports car.

He says: "So he's hit that bollard, then he's hit that bollard. He's hit that f****** plant pot.

"He's hit the Lidl sign… and then that's his Lambo."

Other footage shared on social media shows firefighters tackle flames and thick smoke billowing from the vehicle.

It's not what caused the vehicle to leave the road and catch fire but it's believed the driver was not seriously hurt.

London Ambulance Service (LAS) said nobody was taken to hospital following the crash this afternoon.

"We were called at 1:00 pm today to reports of a road traffic collision on Uxbridge road, Hayes.

"We sent an ambulance crew to the scene. We assessed a person but they were not taken to hospital."

Lamborghini is an Italian brand of supercars and the price for models range from £159,925 for a Urus and up to £6.7m for a Veneno Roadster.

This comes after an unlucky driver wrote off a £30,000 sports car two days after winning it in a prize draw.

Adam Griffiths, 27, crashed the Mitsubishi Evo IX he had won from Dream Car Giveaways and suffered so much abuse he quit social media.

He said he was just relieved his passenger was unhurt and noted "some things can't be replaced".
