McLaren 650S Spider And Mercedes-Benz CLA Crash In Mexico

A McLaren 650S Spider has been wrecked after crashing with a Mercedes-Benz CLA in Mexico.

It’s unclear where exactly in Mexico the crash occurred or exactly what happened but the damage sustained to the two expensive vehicles is comprehensive.

Based on this video posted to Facebook, it is obvious that the McLaren suffered from multiple impacts before coming to a rest on the side of the road. Both the front and side of it have been in obvious compact with the Mercedes while it looks like the rear took a heavy shunt after sliding into the concrete ledge on the side of the road.

The McLaren hasn’t just suffered cosmetic damage either. One of the front wheels and hubs appears to have been twisted out of position, the driver’s side rear tire has been pulled off the rim, and the passenger side rear wheel is also bent, suggesting some serious damage to the hub and suspension.

The dangers of driving a supercar…

Despite the heavy impact(s), it’s surprising to see that neither the driver’s or passenger’s front airbags have been deployed. Instead, only the passenger’s side airbag was triggered by the crash.

As for the Mercedes-Benz, it seems to have suffered from significantly less damage than the McLaren. In fact, the damage is limited to the front fascia, hood, front passenger door, and front passenger-side wheel. It won’t be cheap to repair, however.

Carscoops reader Jairo, who tipped us off to this story, claims that the McLaren was uninsured at the time of the crash. If that’s the case, we do not envy the owner…
