article imageVideo: How not to park a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder

By Anne Sewell     Jul 11, 2014 in World
New Delhi - A valet at the five star Le Meridien Hotel in New Delhi, India is in a certain amount of trouble after he wrecked a guest's precious Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder recently, causing damages of up to $330,000 to the luxury vehicle.
Captured on CCTV for all the world to see, the valet, Arun Kumar drives the car from the parking area at the hotel to the busy valet area. He briefly gets out of the car. Then, after climbing back in, the car suddenly lurches forward, sending other valets running for cover as it hits a wall head-on. The valet managed to injure his head in the process, but was released from the hospital the same day.
What's worse is that the driver who was waiting for the car, Nipun Miglani, had borrowed it from his friend, Abid Fateh Mohammed Khatri, to drive to the hotel last Thursday. He said the car "had been parked by valets a number of times before," and added, "Even that afternoon, the valet took the car to the parking safely and even brought it back to the porch area without any hassles."
Miglani has apparently filed a police case against both the hotel, which refuses to accept responsibility, and also against the valet. The owner says the car is worth half a million dollars, due to the high cost of importing it into India.
The hotel, on the other hand, says it was merely an accident, with a hotel spokeswoman telling the media: "We get all kind of luxury cars, important guests and hold outstanding events and this was something completely inadvertent."
Speaking of the injured valet, the spokeswoman continued:
"We have given him leave until such time that he recovers psychologically and till the time that the insurance claim and other processes clear through."
"We may not put him back on valet. We will give him time because he may get nervous initially," she added.
