It has not been a good week for expensive cars meeting a bitter end. It was only the other day we brought you the story of an Aston Martin DB5 that was completely destroyed in the UK. Today it is the turn of a Porsche 918 Spyder abroad… However, this car didn’t befall its fate due to being out on the open road as this incident happened in a car park via its owner trying to show off. From the very start of the video it is an accident waiting to happen.
The owner of this Porsche 918 Spyder appears to be getting a bit annoyed with people crowding the car, but then later spots someone is videoing and relishes the attention. A stab of the throttle with a beautiful girl in passenger seat results in this supercar charging off toward a couple. In an attempt to avoid them the 918 swerves, slams into another parked car and a hedge. The damage to this 875BHP hybrid beauty appears to be predominately aesthetic and repairable. Its owners dignity less so.
Watch the video of this £653,000 (entry level price) crash below. Did he deserve it? We think so, but the Porsche 918 Spyder probably didn’t.
