A McLaren MP4-12C has been involved in a head-on collision in Taipei recently, as speed was the main factor which lead to this.
The McLaren MP4-12C may have left the production line just earlier this year but that doesn’t mean that this is good for the scrap yard as it still remains one hot ride to own and the same rival to the Ferrari 458 Italia. The newest incident involving the British supercar is coming all the way from Taipei. According to Wrecked Exotics, the model has been driven downhill too fast and it ended up colliding with a Toyota Vios, head-on. Our source isn’t saying anything more on the crash but it seems that no one was hurt.
McLaren has assembled the MP4-12C for just three years, in Woking, Surrey, England, as this was recently replaced with the brand new 650S. The supercar was offered in two body styles, coupe and roadster, both of them having a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power was provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 unit, rated at 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 3 seconds and a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).
