    Imagine seeing this upon returning to your supercar.

    When owning a special car, it's normal to be afraid of carpark door dings. Many of us would be able to relate to parking in the furthest spot away from the shops to avoid the heart-sinking feeling of chipped paint and dented panels.

    As if that wasn't bad enough already - even worse is the dread of returning to your prized car only to see that it's been hit by a careless driver.

    T​his is exactly what happened to 570GT, however unconventionally, the accident ended up being much worse than the usual carpark mishap. While parking, the driver of an Audi Q5 completely missed the low lying supercar, accidentally driving directly onto the McLaren's hood and roof, before flipping onto its side. Well, that's one way to get into an empty parking spot.

    Luckily, no injuries were reported, however both cars suffered extensive damage in the accident. The McLaren's roof caved-in, windscreen shattered, and the hood ended up severely damaged. It's reported that the extent of the damage to the poor 570GT resulted in a complete write-off, so it's very unlikely that this car will ever hit the roads again.

    • "No injuries were reported"

      If my supercar was written off by a lunatic who can't park his shtbox without totaling another car, I am not sure he would get away without any injuries at all. At least, if the driver was male.

    • Q5’s have reversing cameras! I know of two people (women incidentally) who have hit the wrong pedal in autos and ended up in a wall and the other up a split level drive between two houses. Both moronic and I don’t ever want to be on the road at the same time as these people!
