£150k McLaren supercar written off by Audi in freak Sainsbury’s car park crash

Sainsbury's shoppers were shocked to find an Audi flipped over beside a crushed £150,000 sports car.

Emergency services had to free the Audi driver who was trapped inside the vehicle following the crash.

The white McLaren 570GT Coupe's owner returned to their car "in disbelief" to find their supercar completely written off.

Reports say the bizarre collision occurred over the weekend outside a Sainsbury's superstore in Sevenoaks, Kent.

The roof of the McLaren along with the windscreen and the front of the car were left badly smashed up, while the Audi was also badly damaged.

A witness said: "I was unaffected – I was just a bystander.

"I didn't actually hear the crash – I just noticed a large group of people in the car park.

"It took a minute for the coin to drop that the Audi was on its side."

So far it is unclear how the Audi got into that position, but images from the scene show both cars sustained a lot of damage.

There are no reports of any injuries.

The McLaren 570GT Coupe involved in the incident has an RRP when new of £157,055, according to the car review website Parkers.

It is described as "astonishingly fast", "remarkably comfortable" and "practical for a supercar".

Top Gear described the car in a review, as "a supercar that drives beautifully, is hugely potent and has a real sense of occasion".

However, Jeremy Clarkson is not keen on the way it looks – although he does still like it.

Celebrity McLaren owners include Rowan Atkinson, Lewis Hamilton, Lady Gaga and David Beckham.

Repairing a McLaren is not a cheap business, however.

According to one website, an annual service alone costs £599.
