Sorry Dad I smashed your supercar

Martyn Collins

We'd love to be a fly on the wall when the 20-year old driver who crashed this Gumpert Apollo explains to his father how he came to crash his £275,000, 225mph supercar.

He lost control of the rear-wheel drive car on a sharp bend near the German town of Brokdorf, 50 miles north of Hamburg. In the resulting hi-speed smash, parts were sent flying from the Apollo's body with the driver's gullwing door landing 30m away.
