The sports car collided with the rear of the bus at the intersection of Margaret Street and Regent Street. The Lamborghini suffered significant damage to the front end.

The entire front end of the Lamborghini Aventador was devastated, with the bonnet pointing skywards, while fragments of expensive carbon fibre, metal and plastic were strewn across the busy shopping district.

The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ
The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is an extremely powerful car. Its V12 engine delivers 759 hp and 720 Nm of engine torque. Prices for the Lamborghini SVJ started at around half a million euros when new. But it is not the only expensive vehicle involved in this accident. When London's new double-decker buses were introduced in 2012, reports estimated that each cost around $300,000, making this incident incredibly expensive.
