A valet who crashed a supercar into a wall can be confident that he won’t be getting a tip after costing nearly £150,000 worth of damage.
Having collected the car from the parking area, the valet brought the Lamborghini Gallardo round to the porch entrance of the Le Meridien hotel in New Delhi and briefly got out.
But guests at the five-star hotel watched in horror as the valet got back in the car and it lurched forward, sending a colleague diving for cover as it smashed headfirst into a concrete wall.
The whole incident was reportedly caught on CCTV.
A photograph published by the Times of India newspaper shows the bonnet of the white supercar – which can reach speeds of more than 200mph – crumpled against the wall and the bumper hanging off.
Owner Nipun Miglani has filed lawsuits against both the hotel – who have denied responsibility – and valet Arun Kumar for full cost of the repairs.
‘The car had been parked by valets a number of times before,’ a friend of Mr Miglani said.
The Lamborghini Gallardo sells in Europe for around £146,000 but that price nearly doubles in India due to import duties.
Mr Kumar was injured in the accident but discharged from hospital the same day.
