A purple Lamborghini has been spotted abandoned in a ditch after spinning off a road near a football club training ground.
The £270,000 Lamborghini Huracan Performante supercar was photographed in a ditch in Enfield, north London just a short distance from Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground.
The Huracan is owned by Michael Hudson, owner of cryptocurrency market advisory firm Bitstocks.

After his car ended up in the ditch, Hudson contacted celebrity car customiser Yianni Charalambous to rescue his Lamborghini.
He said: ‘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.’
He then wrote: ‘Appreciate all those that called and messaged. I’m totally fine, car damage isn’t too bad either. May post a video on it later today. Thanks again.’
Charalambous, who is known as the ‘man the rich and famous trust with their precious rides’, came to the rescue this morning to help his friend recover the damaged Lamborghini.
The celebrity car customiser said: ‘He just slipped on some water and swerved to avoid a lamp post. It was better to hit the ditch than the 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 near by so he just walked home.
‘When I spoke to him this morning he said he just wanted to deal with it in the morning so I rang my recovery people.
‘We shut the road off and pulled the car out the ditch.
‘There isn’t that much damage but it’s a Lamborghini Performante and it’s one of one – it’s the only one with that colour. He had it specifically painted with the colour SE30 viola.
‘I told him this will go viral so we filmed it. We wanted to make a good thing out of a bad situation.’
Yianni released a teaser video on his Instagram account this afternoon, showing the supercar being pulled out of the ditch.

Speaking about Michael Hudson in the video’s caption, Yanni wrote: ‘Smiling through the pain like a true ledge.’
The full video of the recovery can be seen on his YouTube channel, Yiannimize.
The Huracan was spotted by lighting cameraman Andrew Laurence, 63, at 7am on his way to work.
He said: ‘It happened on a dangerous part of the road. It’s a road where people put their foot down.
‘We don’t see many purple Lamborghini’s around here but there are a lot of footballers because it’s close to Spurs’ training ground.
‘The car was facing the wrong way and was on the wrong side of the road in the ditch.
‘It must have spun off the road during the night.
‘I got out to check that no one was still in it.
‘I have no idea how the driver got out – it was sideways in the ditch.’
The 60mph single-carriageway road is surrounded by large open fields on one side and a thick wooded area on the other – with steep ditches lining both sides of the road.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: ‘We were called to reports that a vehicle had left the road at 1.30am this morning.
‘A vehicle was found off the road and there were no persons present.
‘Enquiries have been made to establish the occupants of the car.
‘No injuries were reported.’
