If you get behind the wheel of a very expensive vehicle, and then crash it, Capetonians are likely to give you grief.
Earlier this year, the infamous ‘2FAST4U’ Jaguar crash in Constantia was a great illustration of that point, although the driver didn’t help her cause when she later chirped Constantia ladies “driving around in their husbands’ cars”.
Through all of that, we remain pleased that the tray of 30 eggs survived.
The latest crash to involve some heated exchanges took place on Sunday just before 11AM on Helen Suzman Boulevard.
Reporting below via TimesLIVE:
“You are never going to own one,” the driver of a McLaren 720S told a bystander who was mocking him for crashing the sports car, valued at more than R5m.
City of Cape Town traffic spokesperson Maxine Bezuidenhout said the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle and crashed it…
“The vehicle hit a light pole and was severely damaged. No injuries were reported.”
Now that we know there were no injuries reported, we can properly enjoy the nasty words being thrown around.
Before we dive in, remember that the McLaren 720S starts from around R4,5 million, with a top of the range number going for around R11 million.
Take it away, boets:
I don’t think anybody comes out of that video looking too hot.
The other car seen in the video is reported to be a Lamborghini Huracan Performante, which can cost well in excess of R4 million.
Whilst unconfirmed, a report from News365 says that “moments before the McLaren crashed, they were seen racing near Green Point when the driver of the McLaren lost control”.
The WC says that “according to eyewitness reports, the McLaren 720S was allegedly street racing” the Lamborghini.
Here is some additional footage, along with images:
I shudder at the thought of the insurance costs involved in this mess.
