Bridegroom writes off Lamborghini
- £230k Murcielago written off
- New wife loses £5000 deposit
- Groom escapes unhurt
A bridegroom's dream drive to his wedding ended in disaster – when he crashed the £232,990 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster that his bride had hired for him.
David Gallucci and his best man walked away from the wrecked car with nothing more than bruising after crashing on a roundabout near Bradford. The car suffered more than £160,000 worth of damage and has reportedly been written off.
Wife loses £5000
Gallucci's new wife, Abi, also lost the £5000 deposit that she'd paid to cover the insurance excess for hiring the car.
Mr Gallucci opted not to tell his wife-to-be about the damage until after the ceremony, instead saying that the supercar had broken down. When he eventually came clean, his new wife saw the funny side.
She said: 'I get in trouble with him if I get the slightest scratch on an alloy.
'It cost me £8000 to hire the car for one hour – but thankfully I paid the excess insurance, otherwise we'd have to sell the house.'
The hire company refused to comment on the incident.
