McLaren 650S, Mercedes-AMG GT S, And Porsche Boxster Crash In Colombia

A McLaren 650S, Porsche Boxster S, Mercedes-AMG GT S, and Toyota Land Cruiser Prado were all involved in crash on a Colombian highway.

The accident happened on the Bogotá-Tunja highway between the towns of Villapinzón and Chocontá at roughly 7 am on Sunday.

Fuel Car Magazine claims that the crash may have been triggered by one of the vehicles performing an unexpected lane change in the wet conditions at high speeds.

The subsequent sequence of events is unclear, but images show that all of the vehicles received quite substantial damage in the crash.

Starting with the McLaren, we can see that almost its entire front fascia has been ripped off. Additionally, one of the sides has been torn to shreds, as has the rear. Similarly, both the Porsche Boxster S and Mercedes-AMG GT S have battered and bruised front ends and are both in serious need of cosmetic surgery.

The presence of an intact Porsche 911 in the background of some images leads us to believe that the four exotics were traveling together when the crash occurred.

As for the lonely Toyota Land Cruiser Prado seemingly caught up in the crossfire, it can be seen resting in a ditch to the side of the highway.

All four occupants were taken to a nearby hospital in stable conditions.

    Wonder if the passengers in the AMG didn’t make it since they have a tarp covering the top. With the extensive damage to all of these cars, it’s pretty clear they are all totaled so keeping water out of the interior seems like a waste. Hopefully that’s not the case and everyone survived, but must say it doesn’t look good.

      Nah, the passenger cell looks intact. You can even see a pic without the cover on.

    Just because you have money does not mean you should buy a “supercar” and that you should even drive one. As an aside, driving in a convoy brings out the “competitor” in many people. Money, fancy cars and competitiveness on the road. Result!.

      Not exactly…

      First, “high profile” accidents like this are always in the spotlight because of the cars. For each one of those accidents, there are hundreds or thousand accidents that happen in the exact same way, but with regular cars. The problem is that nobody cares about them, except some fringe internet sites, cause they don’t present any interest to the large public. Oh, a Camry was racing an Accord on the highway and they crashed into a Passat? Who cares?

      Second, you’d be amazed how many people with regular cars or shitboxes suddenly feel the urge to race with you if you drive a powerful car. Even if you are cruising below the legal speed limit and minding your own business. Not to mention the stupid shit they do to provoke you.

      So yeah, even if you might be right about the right to drive one, money is not a good factor to judge peoples stupidity.

    How does any single person in Colombia afford a Boxster,
    much less a McLaren 650 and an AMG GTS??

    oh yeah; one of two industries in the whole country:
    government corruption or cocaine (or both)

    inform myself?
    a dermatologist in Colombia makes that much money?
    a dermatologist in District of Columbia doesn’t make that much!!!

    a “20 years student” can afford an AMG GTS???
    So then i was right. But…
    why would you even bother lying like that?

  • europeon

    That poor LandCruiser nobody cares about…

    According to Glassdoor and a couple of other webs sources, the average Senior level Doctor with 10+ years experience makes $97,000 in the Colombia. So, say this guy’s a genius dermatologist in private practice (totally not associated with the drug trade). So he makes double the average – close to $180,000 a year. The 650s was $265,000 plus options and taxes in the US but with 20% import duty and 19% VAT and 8% consumption tax that’s over $450,000 on the road in Bogota. Plus annual road tax based on value. You’re seriously saying that with a legitimate dermatologist business this guy is making enough to buy outright (not lease) a car that’s going to put a half million dollar dent in his savings? Yeah right. And the student….did he win the lottery? Get lucky with some eBay sales? 😉
