A brand new McLaren MP4-12C supercar has been recently crashed in Taiwan after its drivel lost control of the wheel and hit a concrete pole.
Supercar incidents seem to be happening more often in some parts of Asia, these days, than anywhere in the world, and with people earning more and more money, buying expensive and powerful vehicles is a first step into showing off. The driver and owner of a McLaren MP4-12C has been hospitalized after his ride hit a concrete pole in Taiwan, after he lost control of the wheel. The British supercar was barely recognizable from the front and will most likely end up in the crusher.
The McLaren MP4-12C has been in production since 2011, and it’s currently being assembled in Woking, Surrey, England, along with the P1 hybrid. The model in question is being offered in two body styles and with a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a twin turbo 3.8 liter V8 unit, which is producing a total output of 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes 3.2 seconds and top speed stands at 333 km/h (207 mph).
