- Michael Hudson, London's bitcoin tycoon crashed his Lamborghini Huracan Performante
- The R5 million super car skidded on water and landed in a nearby ditch as he avoided hitting lampstand
- The car was pulled from the ditch by celebrity car customiser, Yianni Charalambous
A purple Lamborghini, the only one in that colour, was on Saturday, March 2, spotted abandoned in a ditch after spinning off the road in Enfield, north London.
The R5 million Huracan Performante is reported to be owned by Michael Hudson, owner of cryptocurrency market advisory firm Bitstocks.
Hudson then contacted celebrity car customiser Yianni Charalambous, who is known as the man the rich and famous trust with their precious rides, to rescue the car, daily mail reported
"Well we had an eventful morning, this guy is an absolute legend, Nothing but love and respect for you brother, thank you for the help," tweeted Hudson.
"Appreciate all those that called and messaged. I'm totally fine, car damage is not too bad either. May post a video on it later today. Thanks again," he added.
The celebrity car customiser said Hudson was wise in choosing to hit the ditch than a lamp post.
'He wasn't hurt and no other cars were involved. He was the only one in the car and had to climb across the seats to get out. He lives nearby so he just walked home.
Charalambous noted he called his recovery team, shut a section of the road and pulled the supercar out.
"There is not that much damage but it's a Lamborghini Performante and it is the only one with that colour. He had it specifically painted with the colour SE30 viola," he said.
The car was facing the wrong way and was on the wrong side of the road in the ditch indicating it must have spun off the road during the night.
