A billionaire businessman is set to sue a garage after his £1 million Lamborghini burst into flames after being serviced.

Jon Hunt, who founded Foxtons Estate Agents, says his car blew up while his son was still inside.

Jon Hunt's car was destroyed on the A40 in Acton, West London last year. According to the Evening Standard he is claming £700,000 compensation. Only around 750 of the supercars were ever built.

According to the Evening Standard, the writ at the High Court says:

The defendant notified Mr Hunt that the services had been completed and the vehicle was ready for collection.

The defence case from the garage is currently unavailable from the court. The garage involved says it is continuing to do business with Jon Hunt.

His son escaped from the car unharmed.
