Lamborghini driver crashes rare $800K vehicle at Aussie car wash

There is reportedly just 10 of these cars on Australian roads ... but that number just dropped.

A driver who crashed his "rare" luxury Lamborghini into a car wash overnight will likely face it being written off, after mistakenly stepping on the accelerator instead of the brake and slamming into a power pole.

The incident occurred in the Gold Coast suburb of Bundall at 6.30pm on Sunday, with footage of the scene showing major carnage left behind after the driver charged across a garden bed right into the pole, which eventually snapped in half.

Vision shows torn up grass, broken glass and the badly damaged vehicle roped off by police tape.

The 40-year-old driver was treated for minor injuries by first responders, while the Lamborghini itself, that reportedly retails for an estimated $800,000, was likely damaged beyond repair.

Police said the man wasn't speeding at the time of the crash and was using the car wash prior to the incident.

The facility, on Ashmore Road, lost power during the ordeal and was forced to close but it has since been restored.
