Video footage shows the orange McLaren 720s left stranded in a hedgerow alongside a dual carriageway in Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

McLarens are known for their amazing speed - with a top speed of 210mph and boasting a huge 710 horsepower - and this luxury super car is believed to have crashed after coming off the road on Saturday afternoon. Wouldn't you be gutted?

Avon and Somerset Police attended the scene - which was evident as police tape was put on the car and photos show the car's airbags were deployed during the crash.

A spokesperson for the police confirmed the car had suffered some damage and that the driver wasn't hurt.

 

Police told LADbible: "We were called to reports of single vehicle RTC at about 1.15pm on Saturday 29 September on Winterbourne Road.

"This was a damage-only non-injury incident which happened near to the Great Stoke roundabout.

"The vehicle ended up in a hedge near to the roundabout."

However, at this stage it is unclear if anyone has been arrested in connection with the incident.

First sold on the market in 2017, the McLaren 720s is capable of achieving a speed of 0-60 in just 2.8 seconds.

A McLaren car in an accident isn't as unusual as you'd think. Earlier this year two passengers in the super-fast car made a lucky escape after surviving a 200mph crash.

The car burst into a ball of flames and became a twisted wreck, but, miraculously, the two occupants escaped relatively unscathed.

Though described as 'walking wounded', the two emerged from the incident with only minor injuries.

Richard Hammond seemed to take trashing the super-car just that bit further when he completely destroyed it by refuelling it with water rather than fuel on an episode of Grand Tour this year.

The 48-year-old explained to the audience: "It was running low on fuel at the track and rather than take it off to a petrol station which was miles away, I filled it from one of the jerry cans."
