Money, skill, and common sense are three things that are seldom found together in a person. This is especially the case when it comes to automobiles and supercars in particular.
The latest of the supercar crash stories comes from the UK and involves a supercar made in the UK, a McLaren 650S. The driver managed to wrap the front-end of the car around a tree, causing significant damage.
As the story goes, the McLaren 650S was rented during a wedding, and the driver wanted to test the car's launch control system in a carpark. The driver did achieve launching the car, but into a tree, unfortunately, after losing control.
Nobody was hurt, but the impact did deploy both airbags in the front. The car looks repairable, but the embarrassment, surely not.
Supercars are fun to drive, provided they are given the respect they deserve. Also, trying out features like the launch control system is a once in a lifetime experience for some, and for a first-timer, we would recommend expert guidance.
