You’d imagine a gas station to be a relative safe haven from the raging road users in the U.K. But that wasn’t the case for the unfortunate gentleman owner of the $280,000 Aston Martin DBS that was described as a “write off” after a bizarre accident involving a pathetic pink Vauxhall Corsa.
The hapless motorist was left shaken (if not a little stirred) as the owner of the little pink runaround plowed into the side of his prized supercar after having lost control upon leaving the gas station.
Speaking with a local paper, the unnamed motorist said: “I was filling up and then I saw the car coming towards me. She drove out of the petrol station onto the roundabout, lost it, and came over the curb and came straight into the car. My car moved into the pump and bumped the pump off.”
No one was injured in the accident but the luxury motor is now for the scrapyard. “It will be a write-off. They won’t fix that,” said the Aston owner. Has a cheaper car ever wrecked a more expensive car than this? We sincerely hope not.
