McLaren 650S Crashed 10 Minutes After Owner Takes Delivery

Crash follows some celebratory champagne

A newly-minted McLaren owner in England became a little over-excited following the delivery of his brand-new supercar.Telegraphreports that the owner of aMcLaren 650Sstuffed the coupe into a tree just 10 minutes after the car arrived at his house for the first time.

The report states that neighbors spotted the owner celebrating supercar ownership with a bottle of champagne right after the car arrived at his doorstep. Not 10 minutes later, the owner introduced the front end of his $265,000 supercar to the ever-sturdy trunk of an innocent tree. The collision was severe enough to demolish the front end of the car, scattering bits of the carbon fiber bodywork all over the immediate area.

While it isn't easy to sympathize with the owner, it is simple to understand how the car lost control. With a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine sending 641 hp and 500 lb-ft to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, the650Sscampers to 62 mph in a chest-compressing 3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 207 mph. These are not performance figures of a forgiving and easy-to-manage car.

Essex police are not completely sure on the identity of the driver who was piloting the car at the time, and are still conducting an investigation.
