Son writes off dad's £275,000 supercar

20-year-old writes off dad's £275,000 supercar

It's never pleasant telling someone you've crashed their car - but imagine telling dad you've just written off his £275,000 Gumpert Apollo.
That's what a 20-year-old German man has to do - after he was lucky to escape with his life.
The man, who has not been named, was driving his father's rare supercar when he lost control of it. A 19-year-old girl was with him in the passenger seat.
Amazingly, both escaped with only minor injuries, despite the car being a complete write off.
The driver lost control of the car on a bend and came off the road, spraying parts of the car up to 100-foot away.

Police are currently investigating if excessive speed caused the crash, which happened in the German town of Brokdorf, around 50 miles north of Hamburg. The road has a 50mph limit.
The Gumpert Apollo is famous in Britain for taking the Top Gear track lap record in 2008, with a time of 1:17.1. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and the Ariel Atom V8 have since usurped it.
The Apollo has a 225mph top speed and is powered by a 4.2-litre twin turbo V8 engine, from Audi. Three versions are available: a basic one with 641bhp, a Sport version with 690bhp and a Race version with 789bhp. It's capable of hitting 62mph in under three seconds.
