Driver of £260k Lamborghini walks away from crash with bus unscathed

A driver of a Lamborghini supercar worth £260k can consider themselves extremely lucky after walking away from a crash with a bus totally unharmed.

The incident occurred in Nottingham on Sunday night around 9:30pm, at the junction of Carrington Street and Queens Road — just outside of the city's train station.

Police say nobody was injured at the scene, but the same could not be said for the car itself. The bright green Lamborghini Aventador was heavily damaged in the collision — becoming wrapped around a lamppost.

The rear-left quarter panel can be seen hanging off in images released by Nottinghamshire's transport police, with one of the supercar's alloy wheels also clearly dislocated from the vehicle. No pictures of the bus also involved in the incident were shown.

A Nottinghamshire Police spokesman told Sky News: "We were called at around 9.30pm on 25 February to a report of a collision between a car and a bus.

"Police closed Carrington Street whilst emergency services attended, and the car was recovered. No-one sustained any injuries."

The Lamborghini Aventador features a 6.5-litre mid-mounted V12 engine, developing 690bhp in its most basic form — allowing the car to hit 0-60mph in less than three seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 217mph.
