Billionaire, Jon Hunt, the founder of Foxtons, sues garage after £900,000 million Lamborghini caught fire with his son inside

A billionaire property tycoon is suing the London garage which fitted spark plugs into his rare sports car which burst into flames – while his son was inside.

Jon Hunt, who founded Foxtons estate agents, is taking action against H.R. Owen Dealerships for the fire that consumed his £1 million pound Lamborghini Miura SV.

He is claiming £700,000 in compensation, including damages.

His son had driven the car less than a mile from the garage after its servicing when he noticed smoke coming from the engine.

Minutes later flames had engulfed the pricey set of wheels.

He was not injured in the blaze.

Mr Hunt, an avid car enthusiast,  has a museum under his Kensington home dedicated to his collection of vintage Ferraris.
