Photos: Aston Martin worth £180k ($300k) written off by £500 ($800) pink Vauxhall Corsa

Aston Martin written off by bright pink banger

A luxury Aston Martin worth £180,000 has suffered the indignity of being written off by a £500 bright pink  Vauxhall Corsa.
The super smooth DBS sports car may reach speeds topping 190mph but it had nowhere to go when the driver of the Corsa lost control of her vehicle on a roundabout next to a petrol station.

It careered into the side of the Aston, James Bond’s car of choice in 2006 hit film Casino Royale, leaving it damaged beyond repair.

The Aston’s owner – who asked to remain anonymous – said: ‘I was filling up and then I saw the car coming towards me.
‘She drove out of the petrol station onto the roundabout, lost it, and came over the kerb and came straight into the car. My car moved into the pump and bumped the pump off.
‘It will be a write-off. They won’t fix that.’

Hitting the road sign might have been cheaper: The pink Corsa hit the DBS squarely on its right side

Nobody was injured in yesterday’s incident at the Esso garage in Kingshill, Swindon, and no arrests were made.
One passer-by said: ‘She lost control on the roundabout and span around and into the petrol station. It all happened so fast.’

Shaken not stirred: Neither the owner of the Aston Martin nor the Corsa was injured in yesterday's accident
