A 240,000 Ferrari owned by a millionaire father and son was crashed into a house by a couple who are believed to have hired the supercar for their wedding day.
Photographs show the mangled remains of the white Ferrari 458 Spider moments after it drove into the wall in Burnley, Lancashire, yesterday afternoon.
The luxury vehicle is believed to be owned by a car company run by 21-year-old Aleem Iqbal, who goes by the name ‘Lord Aleem’ on the internet, and his father.
It is thought the Italian supercar, which has a top speed of 199mph, had been rented by a couple as a treat for their wedding day.
Lancashire Road Police tweeted pictures of the accident along with the caption: ‘Damage only car crash in Burnley’. The image shows how the bonnet was crushed and the headlights were shattered in the accident. No one was injured.
Mr Iqbal’s father Saleem originally set up Platinum Executive Travel, which offers Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Ferrari and Bentley models for hire, in Birmingham.
The website offers chauffeur-driven car hire for weddings and corporate events and claims it was the first in the West Midlands to offer the Rolls-Royce Phantom for hire, with rates starting at £600 a day.
