A £330,000 Lamborghini and an iconic British Rolls-Royce have been destroyed after arsonists set fire to a building used to house a fleet of luxury cars.

The top-of-the-range vehicles were engulfed in flames when the severe blaze took hold at the car storage premises in Digbeth, Birmingham just after midnight.

Pictures taken inside the car storage unit show the burnt-out remains, including the £330,000 Lamborghini Aventador which was so badly damaged its carbon fibre parts melted in the blaze.

A silver Rolls-Royce Ghost worth around £260,000 was also badly damaged with its silver paint blackened by smoke.

The luxury motors were destroyed in an arson attack at VIP Limousines in Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth, Birmingham in the early hours this morning.

Roads were closed as eight fire crews battled the inferno at the 150 square metre one-storey building.

More than 40 firefighters, 18 wearing breathing apparatus, used three hose reel jets and foam to bring the blaze under control by 4am.

Poor, poor Aventador :(
