Photos show Paddy McGuinness's wrecked £250k Lamborghini after Top Gear crash

Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness was involved in a car crash while filming the hit BBC show on Tuesday afternoon. The host, 46, was uninjured after the accident happened but the same cannot be said for the flashy 1990 Lamborghini Diablo he was driving. In photos snapped of the vehicle - worth a staggering GBP250,000 - the automobile is visibly damaged as the bumper can be seen hanging off the back.

The pricey car can be seen in the photos atop of a recovery truck which were taken as it was removed from the scene of the accident. Another snap, taken at the Yorkshire Dales location, reveals that skid marks were left embedded in the grass following the supercar whizzing off-road after the Bolton native misjudged a corner during filming.
