£250,000 Lamborghini wrecked by 'drink-driver'

Police are hunting a driver who wrecked a £250,000 Lamborghini after "downing" pints of cider in a pub.
The man and a group of friends turned up at a pub driving three Lamborghini Murcielagos and a £137,000 Bentley Continental.

While allegedly drinking pints of strong cider, they told fellow drinkers they had been to a wedding reception and had hired the cars for £5,000 each, driving them at speeds of up to 160mph.

On leaving The Cider House in Wooton, Shrops, they raced off but one of them lost control in nearby Six Ashes and smashed the car, which can do 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, into a tree. His friends, who were travelling behind him, picked him up and sped off before police could arrive.

John Hingley, a plumber who was in the pub, said: "They were in the bar downing pints of cider and bragging about how they had been racing and one of them had got the car up to 160mph."

He said he left on his bike, only for the cars to come "screaming" back past him.

He added: "Then I came across the car lying in the middle of the road. There were people standing round it taking bits off and sitting in it. It was a total wreck."

West Mercia Police said they were trying to trace the driver and asked anyone with information to call them on 08457 444888.


Abandoned Lamborghini may have been hired for a wedding

A supercar destroyed in a country lane crash may have been driven by a man who hired it for a weekend wedding reception, it has been reported.

The white Lamborghini convertible was badly damaged when it hit a tree in Shropshire on Sunday evening.

Escaping serious injury, the driver was picked up by another car and abandoned his luxury vehicle, according to police.

According to reports, he was one of a group of men who told drinkers in a nearby pub, The Cider House in Wootton, near Bridgnorth, that they had been to a wedding reception and had hired three Lamborghinis and a Bentley for the weekend.

A man who saw the group commented on a car website: “I was down the pub having a quiet drink with a few friends when three Lamborghinis and a Bentley raced up the quiet country lane and onto the car park.”

The driver of the white Lamborghini sat in the car park “for a while, just revving it until it was hitting the limiter”, he said.
