It may be difficult to see a nearly $500,000 car wrecked because of hot-shot driving on narrow streets, but a new video of a Lamborghini Aventador crash in one of London's poshest zip codes over the weekend has to be seen to be believed.

The accident occurred Sunday and left Sloane Street in London's ritzy Chelsea district littered with equally ritzy matte black body parts. A fan of the supercar enthusiast Shmee150 submitted footage of the devastating wreck to his YouTube channel, and Shmee kindly turned around and offered it to Autoblog. In the video, the Lamborghini's tires momentarily lift off the pavement as the driver fails in an attempt to squeeze in-between what looks to be a turning Mazda Demio and parked cars including a Nissan Qashqai and a BMW 3 Series.

This enigmatic matte black Lamborghini has popped up on YouTube in the past, shooting flames from its exhaust and causing a ruckus on London streets, The Telegraph reports. No one was arrested at the crash and there are no charges pending at this time. Hopefully, even without legal ramifications, this driver has learned the lesson every morning commuter on London's Tube knows; mind the gap.

Watch the unfortunate action in the video below.

      Springtime in London, and the spoiled princes from the Middle East are terrorizing the streets again.

      Hard to say who is at fault here. The Lambo is obviously going pretty damn fast. The small car (Mazda)? does seem to pull out in front of him. I have a theory. The Lambo is so low that it is entirely possible that it was invisible to the other driver (behind some parked cars). So the small car pulls out thinking the road is clear when the Lambo is actually still there. Ultimately, though, the Mazda is pulling out fairly slowly. The Lambo is clearly driving fairly fast (who know if they were speeding, though based on the London I know it would certainly appear to be that way). Driving too fast with a limited field of view (being so low would also hide the Mazda behind those same parked cars) is not a sign of a mental giant.

      Maybe you're missing this coz you drive on the right, but this is London, and they drive on the left. Clearly the Mazda pulled out in front of the Lambo leaving its driver no room or choice. However, the fact someone had a camera ready suggests they knew it was coming, probably due to the noise of it hooning, likely way faster than appropriate.

      driving a left hand drive car in crowded London will always be a compromise, not to mention a car that is overly wide

      This d-bag needs his license revoked! I don't think he cares at all about the safety of the other drivers and pedestrians on the road.

      Ouch, Obviously the Lambo's fault. He was driving on the wrong side of the street. Hell the whole bunch of them were on the wrong side of the street. Accident in the making. Surprised the car even made it out of the showroom.

      This is the 2nd article I've seen blaming the Lambo driver. Why don't you call out the Mazda driver for pulling out into oncoming traffic?

        Lambo owner must be in the wrong, otherwise it'd break the Lamborghini owner stereotype and the article won't appeal to readers who secretly love to hate those better off than themselves.

      Wow I love how everyone is blaming the lambo guy. Don't blame him because his driving a lambo it's fools like the Mazda that don't pay attention when turning cause this kinda of accidents. And I'm sure it's happened to all of you that are talking ****. The Mazda is at fault and I don't give a **** how fast the lambo is going and if he was going fast the crash wouldn't be this light. Stop hating dude. Oh man I would be pissed if that was my car. Let this be a lesson to those aholes that don't pay attention when driving.

        It is his fault for speeding in the city.I have driven a lot of mean machines, but I have never drove like an idiot on the streets, specially on a city. Wanna go fast if you are alone on a highway? Fine, you wanna drive like an a hole just because you think you are above everyone for having a nice car, then f you.

        The Lambo was going way too fast on a busy downtown London street. You can tell he was showing off for his female passenger and in the end he looked like the fool instead.

      This was not a missed gap - poor headline choice. It's a 2 lane, 2 way street (cars parked both directions). The Mazda appears to pull out in front of the Lambo, into his lane. The Mazda was not paying attention, it looks like she is looking straight ahead, assuming all lanes were clear.
