    Yikes!

    Just ask Ferris Bueller, I don't think he ever trusted valet parking again :D

    :no:

    This what happens when you don't require valets to be licensed drivers.

    I could see even a licensed driver have difficulty squeezing out from a tight spot like this, if not used to stick shift and 700 hp engines.

    All new super and hyper cars are all dual clutch transmissions. That being said, that Lambo has 690 horses, easily to do something like this.

    Oh, yeah. And I could too. My point is this could have been far worse than just a bumper.

    But considering most cities did not regulate valet services up until a few years ago, these valet operators could use recently released felons, people with revoked licenses due to DUIs, etc. to valet your car.

    Tis the reason I will never use a valet service...ever.

    I am the same, I don't let valets touch my car, even though it is a far humbler price range.

    I'm a pretty good driver, but if I were a valet myself, I would be more terrified than excited if I had to wriggle a car like this our of a spot like that.

    That said, this looked to be Monaco or a similar location where the valets may be used to handling exotic and insanely expensive cars. I guess some valets more than others :rolleyes:

    Yup I wouldn't ever trust anyone to drive my car. Worst part is with our FDA building moving to the main campus, if you get in very early you are forced to do valet parking.

    I'd rather park illegally and get a ticket than let some random kid do it, lol. Dude is obviously wealthy. A few hundred bucks for a ticket is nothing.

    That damage will cost at least tens of thousands to fix, if it can even be repaired. The paint alone is up to $20k option, lol. Not sure if the body of an Aventador is something you just come across at your "every day" body shop. I highly doubt it is. Probably have to send the car to the manufacturer to get repaired.

    I'm with Alan on this one:
