If you've just spent £580,000 on a car, the general rule is that you look after it as if... well, as if it's worth over half a million pounds.

What you don't do is drive it recklessly at speed in what appears to be rather torrentially wet conditions.

Or this happens...

Oh dear

The male driver of this formerly beautiful Lamborghini Aventador was lucky to escape without serious injury after he crashed into two other vehicles in northern China.

"The sports car was speeding on the motorway when it collided with two other vehicles," wrote someone on Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter.

They added: "The vehicle sped past me – I estimate at 180kph – and five minutes later we caught it up. It had crashed."

Police are investigating the incident and no one else is reported to have been injured.
