Things Go Instantly Wrong For McLaren 720S Driver

The usual ranking of supercar owners goes that Lamborghinis are for show offs, Ferraris are for snobs and McLarens are for the good and honest serious drivers. Not so much with this McLaren 720S driver, showing off for the camera and instantly regretting it.

The details of this crash are murky. One redditor claimed that the car was driven by a teen before the thread was locked over racist comments. A YouTube commenter claiming to be at the scene said that someone was vlogging in the passenger seat. I’ve seen no hard evidence one way or another.


But I do appreciate that the ultra high performance cars of today are not so easy to drive that any yahoo can mash the gas and look like a hero.
