Sir Jackie Stewart denied driving the Pagani Zonda S car
Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart has denied claims he was at the wheel of a supercar which crashed near Aberdeen, causing £300,000 of damage.
The Pagani Zonda S, which would cost more than £500,000 to buy, was involved in a crash last September.
An Aberdeen newspaper claimed Sir Jackie was the driver.
However a spokeswoman said it was not true, and added: "Sir Jackie wasn't in the country. He's never driven the car and doesn't know the owner."
Sir Jackie was a three-times world champion.
The repairs to a supercar are set to cost insurance firm Aviva £300,000.
The car has been sent for repair to Modena in Italy, where the vehicles are made.
