According to one witness, the Audi driver was trapped inside the car and had to be rescued by emergency services, while the McLaren driver was 'in disbelief'.

The witness said: "I was unaffected - I was just a bystander. I didn't actually hear the crash - I just noticed a large group of people in the car park.

"It took a minute for the coin to drop that the Audi was on its side."

It's unclear how the Audi ended up in that position, but images taken at the scene show both vehicles were left severely damaged.

Fortunately, there have been no injuries reported.

The McLaren 570GT Coupe involved in the incident has an RRP when new of £157,055, according to the car review website Parkers.

The website describes the car as 'astonishingly fast', 'remarkably comfortable' and 'practical for a super car'.

While a another added: "It couldn't have happened to more expensive cars."

This isn't the first smash-up involving super cars in recent days - just last week CCTV footage caught a collision between a £250,000 Rolls-Royce and a £160,000 Lamborghini.

The surveilence cameras caught the moment the Rolls-Royce Ghost smashed into the rear of a red Lamborghini Urus in Walsall, West Midlands.

Images taken after show the Rolls-Royce was left with a mangled front grille and a dent in the side, while the Lamborghini appears to have a busted boot.

Sharing snaps of the aftermath, West Midlands Police wrote: "Well, this is an expensive crash.

"I wonder if it was the cost or another reason why the Rolls driver left the scene?

"Either way, we have his photo and will ask him very soon.

"Driver was not driving for the conditions and obviously can't handle a car like this."
