How not to park an Aventador

Fancy a job as a professional valet? Monaco’s Hotel de Paris may have a job for you

Are you a fan of supercars? Do you thrive in high-pressure environments? Love parking? Good, because we may have the perfect summer job for you.

As you’ll see above, one of the valets at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco had a little incident while trying to park someone’s ice white Aventador. As Jeremy found out, parking Lambos has never been an easy task, and quite often requires teamwork.

But when this particular valet was tossed the keys to the £200,000, 691bhp, 6.5-litre V12 supercar, he decided to go solo. 

After managing to stutter the Aventador back into the parking space, it looked like he could safely wipe the sweat from his brow after successfully parking another persons very, very expensive car. But then he decided to give it a little rev – probably to please the fans that were shielding the car with their cameraphones. What he didn’t check was whether the car was in gear. Which it was. So ran away from him and headbutted a SUV in front, leaving the Aventador with a broken nose and the valet with a heavy dose of embarrassment hanging over his head.

So if you’re in the Monaco area, don’t be surprised if a new position as a professional parker comes up in this week’s Wanted Ads. If it does, would you fancy parking other people’s cars for a living?

Now share it...
