McLaren P1 Damaged During Truck Crash In Cambodia

A McLaren P1 has been badly damaged in Cambodia after the transport truck that was carrying it collided with another truck.

According to a local newspaper, the truck carrying the expensive British hypercar slammed into another large truck carrying goods from Phnom Penh to Andoung Tuek.

Speaking to the media, police chief of the local Botum Sakor district, Sok Thorn, said the cause of the crash was still being investigated and no one has come forward as the owner of the expensive McLaren, restricted to just 375 examples worldwide. Five people were injured in the crash.

Images and video from the scene reveal that the P1, which appears to have a chrome wrap, sustained some damage in the crash. More specifically, much of the front end appears to have been crushed by the truck.

Despite the damage, the owner of the P1 will most likely have it shipped back to Woking for repairs.

      He has been driving P1 for months now. I think he’s more in love with his 918, but he’s already in talk with Pagani for something special and bespoke.

    It’s common in this part of the world for exotic cars that have been wrecked to suddenly be orphans. No one wants to claim ownership. Whole trailers of Ferraris and other exotics have been burned and no one wants to know them. It’s all to do with high import taxes and people wanting to avoid paying them. False registrations etc are common in Thailand and the rest of the region. So are mafias and authoritarian governments. Corruption rules. This car may have been on its way to Thailand. Lamborghinis are smuggled on canoes across brown rivers into Burma to take the registration docs given to freedom fighting armies. Fascinating stuff.

    As much as I like the P1, it’s hard to be concerned about it when there are 5 humans injured in this crash.

    Can’t say I’m surprised. First mistake was bringing a car like this to Cambodia in the first place. Not only is the car valued higher than anything else in that whole country, but it’s still a 3rd world country where you have low education rates, hand-me-down vehicles, and a job market so terrible, that likely anyone could have gotten the job to drive that truck carrying the P1. As such bringing that car to Cambodia and trusting it with a local worker is like a group of kids with tourettes playing the game ‘Telephone’… you just know something will go wrong by default.

    (No offense to Cambodia as a whole, it is a lovely country. It’s the workforce standards compared to the rest of the world I am referring to.)
