Pink £150,000 McLaren Crashed And Destroyed In 20mph Zone

A supercar driver has been left a mangled wreck after crashing in central London.

The bright pink McLaren was involved in a crash in Montagu Mansions in the swanky area of Marylebone in central London.

The driver of the vehicle, which has a top speed of 203mph and costs around £150,000 ($195k), apparently lost control.

Taking to Twitter, Simon Tuhill - London Fire Brigade Borough Commander for Camden - said: "We go to many incidents involving crashed vehicles. But not that many where one of those vehicles is a McLaren 520 supercar.

"Crews from Euston attended this RTC on Montagu Mansions, Marylebone last week to make the scene safe after a driver lost control."

Taking to social media, people were quick to comment on the neon pink car's collision, with one writing: "Note to the obscenely wealthy: if you can afford a supercar, you can afford a driver. Hire one."

Another, who clearly isn't keen on the colour, added: "With a colour like that it deserves to be off the road."

Last Sunday (9 August), someone smashed a Lamborghini into a wall after borrowing it from a friend in Spain.

The green Huracan Performante can be seen being pulled out of the wall, with almost the entire front end of the car now a crumpled wreck.

According to reports, the motor's occupants scarpered shorty after the crash, only to be tracked down by police in a nearby hospital.

It's understood the driver was told by officers they were being investigated for reckless driving on Sunday (9 August).

A couple of days after the crash, it was then revealed the driver had borrowed the car from his - very generous/naive - pal who was the actual owner.

The driver and his passenger were treated for some minor injuries at Huelva's Juan Ramon Jimenez Hospital.

But it wasn't just the driver and passenger who were affected by the crash. Local residents told press that firefighters attending the scene had to cut the power to houses in the area. Fortunately, power was later returned.
