Automotive experts at HPI saved almost £1million worth of supercars from being crushed in September for being on the road without insurance – including a £318k Lamborghini Aventador, a £103k Mercedes G-class and a Ferrari FF.
HPI works with police to help finance and leasing companies recover uninsured supercars and other premiumprice vehicles. You’d think if you could afford a Lambo you’d get it insured.
The cars should have been crushed to show their owners that being stinking rich doesn’t mean you can act irresponsibly by driving uninsured.
Bet if you or I were caught with an uninsured Dacia it would be flattened.
The first pick-up truck by Mercedes-benz, the X-class, has gone on sale with deliveries starting early next year from £27,310 plus VAT.
The X-class is based on the Nissan Navarra but you’d never guess. It looks and feels like a Mercedes even if it does have an engine made by Renault – and the French firm’s own take on the platform, the Alaskan, goes on sale next year.
All X-class models feature 4wd and high and low-range transfer gearboxes with a choice of 163bhp or 190bhp 2.3-litre diesels.
