A driver borrowed his friend's £900,000 Lamborghini to show off at a party - but wrote off the luxury vehicle after crashing into a palm tree.

The man jumped into the black Murcialago LP670-4 SuperVeloce after eating at a restaurant with pals in Bangkok, Thailand.

He had two friends in the car and it became airborne as he drove up a steep part of the road.

He then lost control of the supercar, clipped a motorbike and ploughed the vehicle into a palm tree at the side of the road at 3am on Monday morning.

The driver was unhurt but his two friends suffered minor cuts and bruises in the crash. 

Horror pictures show the entire front and side of the sports car totally destroyed and the devastated driver with his head in his hands.

Rescuer Worapol Rachatawet, who took pictures of the wrecked Lamborghini, said: "The man who was driving had a face as white as a ghost. He'll be paying for the damage for a long time.

"It's a miracle nobody was killed because the car was smashed very badly. It will need to be sent to the scrap yard. If I was the owner I would be crying."

A Lamborghini Murcialago LP670-4 SuperVeloce can cost around £400,000 in the UK but car prices are typically double in Thailand due to higher import taxes.

The owner told officers that he had paid 40 million Thai Baht for the car - around £900,000.

Some have difficulty with their blind spot, while others find it hard to stay focused, preferring to change the radio station or – even worse – sending text messages while driving.
