McLaren 720S Turned Into A Pile Of Junk Following Horrific Crash

A McLaren 720S was completely destroyed in a mysterious accident recently.

The wreckage was spotted by police in the desert near Las Vegas this weekend, and as it can be seen in the video and images that follow, the car was beyond salvageable.

At first glance, it appears that due to excessive speeding, the British supercar skidded off the road, rolled over several times and then finally came to a complete stop on its belly.

The brilliant carbon fiber monocoque saved the lives of the occupants, as the interior retained most of its original shape, on the driver’s side at least. It’s been reported that the person sitting behind the wheel and the passenger are at the hospital with minor injuries, most of which are bruises.

However, as beat up as it may be, there are still some parts that can be re-used, such as the seats, several buttons inside and the steering wheel, whose airbag didn’t deploy, for some reason.

Things don’t look that promising when it comes to the mid-mounted twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine though, as it seems to have been severely beat up, just like the rest of the supercar.

Given that it was discovered by the local police on a road used by Corsa Rally participants, it’s not excluded that this McLaren 720S could have been taking part in the event.
