Luxury cars worth more than £1m lie on side of Kent dual carriageway after accident

Nine luxury cars worth more than £1m were tipped over on the side of a dual carriageway after a transporter carrying the cars overturned.

The transporter, carrying vehicles which included a Lamborghini, Aston Martin and BMW, was on the A20 near Farningham, Kent when the incident happened.

Police attended the scene on Wednesday evening and the driver of the transporter sustained a minor injury.

The area has now reopened after road closures were put in place while the luxury cars were recovered at the scene.

Some of the cars on the trailer are sold for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

A red Lamborghini Huracan is sold for upwards of £150,000 and can reach speeds of 201mph.

A black Jaguar F-Type was also tipped on its side, which starts at £62,000. The more expensive models can cost up to £108,000.

Meanwhile, an Aston Martin DB11, also on the transporter, has a recommended retail price starting at £152,000.
