The driver of a McLaren 570S – wroth around £145,000 had a miracle escape after the supercar crashed into a house and burst into flames in Wiltshire.
The accident happened as the McLaren car was travelling to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex on Sunday (July 2).
As you can see from the pictures – not much is left of the car itself but the driver and passenger managed to get out before the car burst in to flames.
“We’d deliberately got on the road very early, about quarter to six in the morning, to avoid the manic traffic heading to Goodwood,” he told the Telegraph.
“Unfortunately, at that time in the morning, there’s still lots of wildlife about, and we were driving down a stretch of road with woodland either side of it.
“There was a big animal that suddenly darted out in front of me – a deer or a badger or something – and I swerved to avoid it.
“I was trying to protect the animal but also to avoid any damage to my car.”
