Yo Gotti emerged victorious in his legal battle against an auto shop he accused of crashing his Lamborghini during a joy ride.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, an Atlanta jury sided with the rapper following a trial and awarded him a total of $66,300.

The jury found an Atlanta auto shop, Motorcars of Georgia, was partly liable for the $390,000 in damage to his 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. The jury found them only 17% liable for the crash that basically totaled Gotti's whip.

The trial stems from the 2016 lawsuit filed by the rapper (real name: Mario Mims) accusing the auto shop of damaging his Lamborghini Aventador after their employee got into a crash while taking the car for a joy ride.

Yo Gotti bought the car for $409,198.70 and claimed to have used the Lambo to promote his persona and brand. He even used the car in his lyrics and prominently featured it in a 2015 video.

He transported the car to Motorcars of Georgia for maintenance and repair services related to the car's accelerator, clutch, and transmission. The rapper said the deal never allowed MOG or their employees to operate the Lamborghini outside of their facility for any purpose other than the requested maintenance and repair services.

Gotti accused one of their employees of driving the car and then getting involved in a crash with a tractor-trailer.

Motorcars denied allegations of wrongdoing and said the accident was caused by third parties outside their control.
