A young businessman’s £125,000 gold Lamborghini exploded just 1 hour after picking it up from garage.
Lak Sira, 22, said he was nearly killed after his “pride and joy” went up in smoke as he drove along the M6 with his girlfriend.
The entrepreneur had been on his way to London when he smelt petrol and was forced to pull over on the hard shoulder near Birmingham.
He then jumped from the gold chrome-plated Gallardo after hearing a loud bang and watched helplessly as the back of luxury vehicle was engulfed in flames.
Shocking pictures show the flaming wreckage as well as the blackened remains of the gutted vehicle after fire crews had extinguished the blaze last Friday.
The self-made businessman said he had paid £10,000 for a service and picked it up from Lamborghini Birmingham when it burst into flames just an hour later.
Lak, who earns £200,000 a year running an online trading company, has blamed the garage’s negligence and said he is looking at taking legal action against the dealership.
