A McLaren employee has crashed this brand new 650S Spider while he was driving back to the factory.
The second recorded incident which happened within a week involving the McLaren 650S Spider is now coming from an “official” source as the supercar in question was crashed by a McLaren employee. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, he was driving back to the factory when he lost control of the wheel. The driver was thrown from the supercar and impaled on the fence, suffering serious injuries. His condition is currently stable and he will be recovering.
McLaren has officially unveiled the 650S and 650S Spider during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and the model in question is coming with a familiar front fascia, inspired by the P1, and an even more familiar rear end, inspired by the MP4-12C. The 650S has replaced the MP4-12C and it has a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine under its hood. The unit is producing 651 HP (478 kW) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint made in 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 328 km/h (204 mph).
