A newly-bought Lamborghini was wrecked after just 20 minutes on the roads, police said.
The luxury sports car, believed to be worth about £200,000, was damaged in a crash on the M1 in West Yorkshire.
The Lamborghini was hit from behind by a van after stopping in the outside lane because of a "mechanical failure", West Yorkshire Police said.
The driver of the van suffered head injuries in the collision, although they were not thought to be serious.
A police officer from West Yorkshire shared pictures of the crash, near Ossett on Wednesday, and said that although "it's only a car" he "could have cried".
