Details are sketchy, but sometime during the morning of July 15th, a 22-year-old male in a Mercedes McLaren SLR lost control of the vehicle and died in the resulting catastrophic crash. The massive debris field scattered across the Qatari desert suggests the car was traveling at very high speed, rendering any amount of carbon-fiber protection useless.
(Also, we'd like to point out while we do not believe SLR Guy was to blame for the destruction of this particular SLR, without more information we're unable to further speculate. — Ed.)
