West was not driving the $750,000 car - a birthday gift from Kardashian - when it was pulled into her driveway. Instead, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 was being delivered to Kardashian's home after getting serviced. The driver pulled through the gates, but undoubtedly nervous about driving West's luxury sports car, drove too slowly and the electric gates shut on the car. The vehicle was hit on both sides before the gates moved back and the car pulled into the driveway.

It's unclear what damage was done to the Lamborghini, but even a scratch on a luxury car can be expensive to repair. The repair shop quickly sent a car detailer to Kardashian's house to assess the damage and see if the scratches could be buffed out.

At Country Gates and Barriers we offer a complete service which involves the installation and service of Electric Gates, including installation of Safety Devices such as Safety Photo Cells. Fitting such a device stops Electric Gates closing on motor vehicles and people. When a beam of light from the Photo Cell is interrupted, the gate is prevented from opening or closing.
