Default Good-bye McLaren 720

One day old, $300k, one idiot driver. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local...=.ca943fba3075


Well, I tried to add a link to the Twitter feed from Fairfax County Police but this lousy software doesn't want to display it, so go to the Fairfax PD Twitter page. It should be here: pic.twitter.com/XhC3LKRY1t

Wow...did not see this yet. Nice roads in that area. Guess that guy thought so, too, at least for a short time. He didn't have time to show it off at the Great Falls Cars and Coffee! Or maybe he did - it was yesterday very near where he crashed.

Bring it to my detailing business, no problem buffing those scratches out. What an idiot, more money than brains.

Just because you can afford it, doesn't mean you can drive it.

I understand that it was a mechanical failure that caused the crash, something about a nut being loose behind the steering wheel...
By the way, supposedly he WAS coming from or going to Cars and Coffee and was less than a mile away.
