The owner of a Ferrari 458 Italia returned to find tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage caused by a lorry which had gauged a hole in his parked supercar.
The car – which costs £169,545 new – was parked on Kensington Square, in Kensington, West London. The area is very exclusive, with Kensington Square – the oldest garden square in the capital – boasting homes with an average value of more than £8million.
The unlucky owner, not believed to live in the area, had left his car parked in the square just off Kensington High Street, thinking it would be safe until his return.
The driver of the lorry was said to have been shaken but not seriously injured. No arrests were made.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: ‘Police were called at approximately 2pm to Kensington Square to a collision between a lorry and a parked vehicle. The parked vehicle is a red Ferrari and the lorry was a white DAF truck.
