Transporter carrying luxury cars worth millions topples over in dramatic scene

Almost 10 supercars worth an estimated more than £1million toppled over in a transporter on the dual carriageway.

The nine motors, which included an Aston Martin, Lamborghini and a BMW, were filmed flung across the A20 near Farningham, Kent, as police rushed to the scene.

The incident unfolded near the famous Brands Hatch racing circuit. The transporter was seen with its trailer on one side and the head of the truck on another.

The driver of the transporter somehow only picked up minor injuries, but the expensive cars were not so lucky.

Among the cars spotted on the trailer were a red Lamborghini Huracan, which can be flogged for up to £150,000, and an Aston Martin DB11, which starts at £152,000 according to British car magazine Autocar.

One person on X, formerly known as Twitter, said the cars are thought to provide driving experiences at Brands Hatch.

Facebook user Ben Slipper posted footage of the dramatic aftermath online.

He wrote: “Just happened outside Brands Hatch [a motor racing circuit in West Kingsdown], fella has dabbed the brakes and got the mother of all tank slappers.”

In the video, he can be seen walking through the wreckage, saying in shock: “Oh my God. Oh, f***.

“Oh, of all the cars to go over… What the f***?”

A spokesperson for Kent Police said: "Kent Police was called at 7.57pm on Wednesday 23 August to a report that a car transporter had overturned on the A20 near Farningham.

"Officers attended the scene where the driver reported a minor injury.

One social media user responded to the carnage: "That is seriously f***ed up."

Another wrote: "That's bonkers imagine the damage bill wow," while a third added: "Few quids worth there."

The road was temporarily closed as police tried to clear the supercar pile-up.
