Shocking footage has captured the moment a Lamborghini rental worth at least $600,000 crashed into a used car yard.
The Lamborgini Huracan 724 coupe spun off Parramatta Road at Concord in Sydney at around 9pm on Friday night.
The vehicle then hit three cars on the street before slamming into the RV Motors lot.

The luxury sports car came to a rest wedged on top of a Ford Falcon, valued at $16,999.
The driver left the scene before police arrived but has since contacted officers.
The Lamborghini currently retails between $789,809 to $825,914 for the 2023 model and $653,000 for earlier makes.
Fire Rescue NSW Superintendent Adam Dewberry said the driver was incredibly fortunate not to have struck power poles or something equally as dangerous.
Supt. Dewberry also said the public was lucky the accident happened when few people were around.
RV Motors owner Christopher Quach’s first reaction was more bemused than angry at a car smashing up his lot.
‘I said, “Half a million dollars doesn’t look good up there”. That was my first reaction, he told 9News.
‘I got here and realised it was a Lamborgini hanging off one of the Ford Falcons in the yard and it’s actually crashed into another two cars as well.’
Nobody was injured in the incident, although two cars were written off.
Witnesses alleged the driver left the scene claiming he didn’t want cops involved and that he would sort things out with the car yard.
The abandoned vehicle is believed to be a rental.
