McLaren 720S Gets Its Butt Smacked By Sliding Pickup Truck

To take a more lighthearted approach, we could say on one hand the pickup truck was mighty “cheeky” to give the sleek and expensive British supercar such a gentle love tap, without even treating it to a date at a car wash.

On the other hand, there’s really nothing funny about this incident, especially if you’re the owner of the McLaren 720S. Sure, it could have ended much worse, but in the end nobody wants to see their exotic car damaged in any way.

The Mercedes is the real winner here

Had that white C63 AMG Black Series not changed lanes in time, there’s a good chance that pickup would have plowed right into the German car, in turn propelling it directly into the McLaren, which then could have hit the SUV in front.

But that snowball effect didn’t come to pass and the truck skidded sideways under braking, hitting only the 720S in its derrière.

Come to think of it, this is by far the lightest crash we’ve ever seen involving a McLaren 720S. Other incidents include one being reduced to a pile of junk after a brutal accident, another one being driven into an Audi R8 by an inexperienced driver, and one crashing during a car event in Belgium.

As for this particular one, there’s actually nothing more the driver of the McLaren could have done, other than slow down in order to back up traffic a little bit more. In the end, the fault appears to lie with the pickup driver..

      I think this happens because certain drivers want to show these exotic car owners that they don’t rule the road.
