McLaren P1 Crash Gives Owner a Black (and Blue) Friday
A 27-year old Dallas, Texas, McLaren owner is having his own type of Black Friday — make that black and blue Friday after crashing his $1 million McLaren the day before Thanksgiving. Apparently he had owned the car for one day. According to USA Today, “A Texas Department of Public safety spokesperson said troopers were called to the scene around 7:41 a.m. Wednesday. Investigators say the 27-year-old driver lost control and hit a guardrail after driving over a wet spot in the road.” RELATED: See More Photos of the McLaren P1
The 2015 McLaren P1 — one on only 375 to be built — was heavily damaged in the crash. The driver and his 24-year-old passenger were taken to Parkland Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The McLaren P1 costs over $1 million and can easily reach speeds of over 200 mph. No word if speed was a factor in the crash, but we wouldn't be surprised.

But then Mother Nature apparently intervened by randomly placing a wet spot in the worst place possible. After all, we are sure speed had nothing to do with the McLaren P1 crash.
One can almost picture the scenario. “Want a ride to work? Let’s hop in the McLaren I just bought yesterday for a million bucks. Don’t worry. I know what I’m doing.”
