An insurance company is facing a record payout for a car crash after a motorist caused £300,000 damage to a Pagani Zonda S supercar during a test drive.
The driver was borrowing the £528,000 sports car from its owner when he spun out of control on a narrow country lane near Aberdeen.
The Italian-made vehicle, which can reach speeds of 220mph, hit a telegraph pole before smashing through a fence.
The motorist, whose identity has not been revealed, escaped the mangled wreckage unhurt.
But Aviva, the insurance firm picking up the pieces from the crash in September last year, has been lumbered with a six-figure bill for repairs to the car.
It is thought to be the highest ever British insurance payout for repairs to a car.
