The shocking moment a £47,000 black Jaguar drives over an expensive bike, smashing it to pieces and leaving onlookers horrified, has been captured on video.
A Lycra-clad cyclist is seen standing in the road at the junction of Kilburn High Road and Brondesbury Road after a spat with the driver of the Jaguar.
The cyclist is holding a phone to his ear and is believed to have been on the phone to the police.
Moments later the Jaguar surges forward, leaving the cyclist milliseconds to jump out of the way of the SUV.

The video has divided opinion on social media, with many criticising the cyclist for standing with his bike in the middle of a busy junction. Others have said the Jaguar driver was ‘dangerous’, and one user said he was a ‘lunatic’
Some on social media supported the driver, with some complaining about the actions of cyclists generally.
Users pointed out that the cyclist appears to have been crossing the road on the phone and that the Jaguar was in a yellow box, meaning that it needed to move.
But others have said the driver overreacted and was driving dangerously.
One user said: ‘God, I’m not even a cyclist and I don’t particularly like them. But the amount of morons in these comments defending the driver, honestly.’
Another account said the driver was a ‘lunatic’.
