Consider this, you own a regular hatchback and the garage in which your car is repaired, puts a little scratch on your car. What will be your reaction? Now consider this- you own a rare, one out of only 764 made Supercar, costing at around $ 1.5 million and the car goes down in flames, leaving nothing out of it! What will be your reaction then?
Yes, this all happened in London last year, when a Lamborghini Miura burned down to ashes, as soon as it left the garage, it was being worked on. The rare and classic Miura was one among the 764 such built cars and costs at around $ 1.5 million in current exchange rates. The owner has decided to sue the garage, pointing fingers squarely at the Lamborghini dealership for the fire.
But the case is not that easy! The car was not in the dealership possession at the time of the fire, instead it was driven by the owner's son, way back to home from the dealership. Within minutes of him driving the car from the dealership, it caught fire and was burnt down to ashes, leaving nothing out of the car. The owner of the car was certain Jon Hunt, a billionaire property agent and the dealership was owned by H.R Owen automotive group.
The suit is said to be worth a million, which is definitely way less than the cars cost. Watch the video included, but beware, it's not for the weak hearts and specially automotive aficionados, as when it comes to watching an irreplaceable classic supercar burning to the ground.
