Dad's Friend Crashed His McLaren MP4 in Taiwan!

My dad's friend owns a McLaren MP4 in the same color as my dad's and apparently had a pretty bad accident... Not sure what happened. A lot of my dad's friends called him after the accident after seeing these photos to make sure my dad was ok lol. He reassured them that it wasn't him.

The owner is fine, he walked away from this.









Going back to Taiwan in a week, gonna post a new thread with new pics of cars when I get a chance.

A little bit of polish and that should buff right out.

Hmm, I'm surprised at how many of the body panels appear to be aluminum. I had just assumed that the body was carbon. I also didn't realize that the front bumper was actually a living tree. Impressive that the driver was okay.

Glad to hear he is alright, that's a hell of a wreck.

Any word on how it happened?

The hell, is that fiberglass? Passenger would have been toast in that one! Also reading the thread title, I thought you meant your dad's friend crashed your dad's MP4. Didn't know which "his" you were referring to lol

Unless there was another car involved that made him take evasive action, I think he'd be well served (as well as everyone that shares the road with him) to take a performance driving lesson or two.

Saw my dad's friend today. He replaced his McLaren MP4 with a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG....a much safer choice *sarcasm*.
