A mechanic's sneaky joyride in a customer's Lamborghini has gone all down hill.

Niklas Schwartz couldn't resist the lure of the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder 550 PS when a customer dropped it off for some minor repairs recently.

After the repairs were completed, Schwartz and a friend hopped in and headed off on a drive they will surely never forget.

Road conditions were wet and the 29-year-old mechanic lost control of the 5.2-litre V10-powered supercar on a bend. The car skidded across the road, crashed into a barrier and rolled.

Schwartz escaped without injury while his 24-year-old passenger suffered a head injury that didn't need hospital care.

News of the injuries to the Lamborghini were not as minor with the vehicle considered a write off. It was reported that it took 14 firemen and two appliances to get the car back on its wheels before it could be towed away.

There is no word yet on whether Schwartz has kept his job and whether police were filing charges.
