We love talking about cars. It’s not only our job, but our passion as well. Unfortunately, every once in awhile - actually much more often than we feel we should - we have to discuss certain incidences that cause us to file the vehicle under "car obituaries". Usually it’s a Ferrari, maybe a new Lamborghini, but when it’s a super-rare McLaren F1, its hard to even look at the picture, let alone write about it.
According to the police reports, the said McLaren F1 was sailing at high speeds down the tarmac of the German Autobahn when it swerved to avoid hitting a car. In doing so, the F1 successfully struck two other cars. Now we don’t know if it’s just us, but based on the damage to the car, either the F1 is a tank or the car was not going warp speed. Nevertheless, the estimated repair costs come in at a cool 80,000 pounds, which translates to a $130,000 hole in your pocket. That’s enough to cover an intact Ferrari 360, maybe even a couple BMWs.
Of course, to own a McLaren F1 basically means that your bank account isn’t scarce by any means and repairing the supercar probably won’t translate into a monetary dilemma for the owner, but that doesn’t change the fact that this incident is simply tear-producing news.
