McLaren P1 Crash : Man crashes $1.2 million dollar sports car

McLaren P1 crash: A man crashed a million-dollar sports car about twenty-four hours after he got it.

According to USA Today, “A Texas Department of Public safety spokesperson said troopers were called to the scene around 7:41 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators say the 27-year-old driver lost control and hit a guardrail after driving over a wet spot in the road.”

The 2015 McLaren P1 — one on only 375 to be built — was heavily damaged in the crash. The driver and his 24-year-old passenger were taken to Parkland Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The McLaren P1 costs over $1 million and can easily reach speeds of over 200 mph. No word if speed was a factor in the crash, but we wouldn’t be surprised.

But then Mother Nature apparently intervened by randomly placing a wet spot in the worst place possible. After all, we are sure speed had nothing to do with the McLaren P1 crash.

One can almost picture the scenario. “Want a ride to work? Let’s hop in the McLaren I just bought yesterday for a million bucks. Don’t worry. I know what I’m doing.”
