Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason Crashes His McLaren F1 GTR

If you’re a car lover, then you may want to close your eyes as Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason tragically crashed his famous McLaren F1 GTR over the weekend.

Mason was taking part in the 75th Members Meeting at the Goodwood Circuit, an event known for attracting the world’s most expensive cars for demonstration laps and full-blown races.

Video from the incident shows Mason’s bespoke F1 GTR sliding across the grass before it slams into a crash barrier on the side of the circuit. Initially, the rear of the British car makes contact before the front end violently smashes against the hard barrier, causing significant damage to both ends.

Fortunately, the damage to the car will certainly be repairable and Mason definitely has the money to bring it back to its former glory.

Putting an exact value figure on Mason’s F1 GTR is difficult. In 2014, an F1 GTR longtail sold for $5.28 million at auction and in 2015, a road-going F1 converted to LM spec fetched $13.75 million. Mason’s is one of just a handful to be made road-legal, inevitably adding to its value. If it ever is sold, a figure well over $10 million seems likely.

      lol… respect to him for not just driving it, but racing it.

  • Well happy to see it’s used as it should be. But it still hurts to see it crash.

  • Roman Bokhan

    Now he can repair it and sell for much more money like Mr. Bean did

    At least he’s using the damn thing. I’d rather see this car in the wall after many laps than the same car with 0 miles since was made, not even stepping foot on tarmac! He is doing what is expected of him and racing it! I cannot wait to see it back on track! Well done lad.
