This would be a case of the rich also crying if the driver had not made a joke after crashing a McLaren 720S worth ₦154m ($430k).

A day in the life of a rich cat? Try, wrecking a McLaren 720S, and then your towing company making a joke about it on social media as if your bike had a puncture! That’s just chill as Kim Kardashian would say.

No wonder anyhow, it’s a case of losing control of a $430,000 or ₦154,800,000 speedster along Beverly Hills Mulholland drive.  And then of course in the aftermath of the crash, a chopper had to be sent in to rescue the rich driver.

The rescue team had to be lowered to rescue the 50 year old driver who had sore ribs

The lucky driver, who could have been seriously hurt, was taken out by emergency rescue when a kind-hearted resident called in to report lights rolling down the steep road into the valley below. A helicopter sent in in quick response was able to confirm the crash and rescue the driver. The nearly half a mil supercar had finally come to a stop, halted by a tree.

Supercars such as the McLaren 720S pack a pretty hefty punch when you press the pedal to the metal and speculations are that the driver must have been overtaken by a rapid change of events, culminating in the car plunging off the high road. It took the miracle of the tree to prevent the car falling on down the hill, into the residential streets below.

Rescuers were lowered down to the driver’s position. They found the 50 year old awake and rescued him. He talked about having “sore ribs” and was sent on to a local hospital.

The car suffered significant damage and was towed out of the crash site the following day. The McLaren 720S has a mid-mounted 4.0L twin turbo V8 engine, is a rear wheel drive powering out 529KW. This made for speed supercar will go from 0-100km in some 2.8 seconds.
