Rental McLaren crashed
on highway

No mercy for expensive sports cars at the Goldrush Rally

The driver didn’t even exceed the speed limit, but still managed to total an MP4-12C during the Goldrush Rally. First a ditch, then a metal storage building took its toll on the car.

The Goldrush Rally is to the USA what the Gumball 3000 is to Europe. Every year the majority of the high-end luxury cars are represented at the event, convoying across the States from San Francisco to Chicago.

One of this year's entries, a McLaren MP4-12C was crashed heading towards Dallas by its driver, Hsino Chen. Having some idea of the atmosphere of such events and having seen the pictures, it is surprising to read that the accident wasn't caused by speeding. Chen was trying to avoid a truck that had pulled in front of him, slamming the expensive McLaren into a ditch, then crashing into a warehouse.

The driver and his passenger both got away uninjured but the rare McLaren MP4-12C probably won't get back on the road anytime soon. The biggest problem with all of this was the fact that the $268,000 car was the property of the Los Angeles-based Black & White Car Rental so Mr. Chen surely won't get his deposit back after totalling the $2,900- a- day rental.

It's not your average Gullwing

And after 57 years there was one lucky bloke to drive it too. Oh, they also made a short movie on that stint. Just listen to the noise it makes...
