McLaren 720s Loses Control, Bulldozes Parked Audi R8 (Street View)

If there’s one thing that we have learned over the years, it’s that with high horsepower automobiles, you need to learn to respect that power and grow into it. As a youngster, you might not understand this as you tend to want to drive the fastest thing that you can get your hands on but when you start getting some years behind you, you can understand why exactly the younger version of yourself had no reason being behind the wheel of a high horsepower automobile. It’s just so easy to pound throttle and see what the car has got and once that power is unleashed, as we see here, it’s incredibly easy to get away from you.
In this one, we hop in the passenger seat of a McLaren 720s and go for a little ride but instead of just a casual cruise that the occupants of this car had probably anticipated upon leaving their starting point, it ended up being a little bit hairier than anyone had bargained for. As the car continues down the road, eventually, we’re greeted by the driver mashing that accelerator and sending the machine forward, however, it isn’t long before traction is lost and the high dollar exotic car ends up going sideways.
If you follow along in the video below, you’ll see the results of that sideways slide as, on the other end of the momentum, sits another expensive car in an Audi R8. Unfortunately, it appears as if there was no way to stop the slide and the only thing left to do was have the Audi break the fall of the McLaren as it slid out of control. Luckily, it doesn’t look like anybody was injured here but that’s going to be one heck of a situation to explain to the insurance company, that’s for sure.
Now, if only Supreme sold overpriced driving lessons.
