A DRIVER pranged his £250,000 Lamborghini while reportedly zooming along at 130mph in a high-speed police chase.
The motorist put his foot down after cops started following him when they saw the white Huracan flash by them at more than double the 40mph speed limit in Sydney, Australia.
Officers from the Liverpool Highway Patrol started to pursue the supercar shortly after 9pm on Sunday – but the driver sped away.
He then accelerated to an eyewatering 130mph before smashing into two cars at the intersection of Cowpasture Road and Green Valley Road, cops say.
The driver and passenger then tried to make off on foot before officers caught up with them, the Mail reports.
Police allege the driver then tried to assault an officer to avoid being arrested.
