The driver of a 2011 McLaren MP4-12C has completely ruined his ride in Taiwan after losing control of the wheel while speeding.
Another exotic supercar incident has lead to the vehicle in question being transformed into beer cans in Taiwan, where it met its end, on the 8th of December. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the British supercar in question has been crashed by its driver while he was speeding. The MP4-12C has hit a concrete pole, smashed another power pole on the other side of the street and it finally came to rest. The driver was taken to the hospital and the supercar to the graveyard.
The McLaren MP4-12C is in production since 2011 and it’s currently being assembled in Woking, Surrey, England. The model in question is being offered in two body styles, coupe and roadster, and it has a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is good for 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, with 80 percent of the torque available at just 2,000 rpm. The unit is mated to a 7-speed automatic dual clutch transmission. The 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint takes 3.1 seconds and top speed stands at 207 mph (333 km/h).
