This is the moment a driver loses control of one of the world's rarest sportscars - a split second before it smashed into a lamp post.

A passenger in another car used his smartphone to film the white Lexus LFA supercar in the island city state of Singapore.

The Lexus is seen powering past the car filming the action but then suddenly loses control and swerves into the central reservation.

The highly-powered car clips the kerb and then veers sharply left, across the path of a bus.

Cameraman Avery Wong said the car, which had two people in it, then smashed into a lamp post outside a church, off camera.

The 28-year-old student said: "When he went past us, he floored the gas pedal and lost control and crashed into the lamp post.

"He didn't hit the bus, the bus was just a little too slow."

Mr Wong, who shared the clip on Facebook, said he started filming the car on an impulse after spotting it while in his friend's car.

Police later confirmed the accident happened on Singapore's Changi Road, and a spokesman added: "No one was injured."

Cops are looking into the accident but declined to comment further pending the outcome of their investigations.

The Lexus LFA is a two-seat luxury supercar considered one of the most expensive Japanese road cars ever built.

Only 500 were made worldwide. Each car had to be custom ordered to the customer's specifications, and cost approximately 375,000 USD (265,000 GBP), depending on options chosen.
