It's a scene you could only imagine stumbling across in expensive west London - a £250,000 McLaren supercar reduced to a twisted wreck after a collision.

The McLaren 650S Spider - which has a top speed of more than 200mph - crashed on Eaton Square, one of London's poshest roads, on Saturday night (February 21).

It is thought the brand-new supercar, which was registered in Monaco, was turning right at traffic lights in Belgravia, Westminster, when it was in collision with a Saab.

The McLaren spun as a result of the impact, with parts of each car scattered across the road, some up to 45ft away.

Police officers attended the scene and covered the road surface in sand following an oil leak, but luckily no-one was hurt in the 8pm smash.

Launched last year, the McLaren 650S Spider is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged engine developing around 640bhp.

This gives the convertible a 0-62mph time of less than three seconds and a top speed of 204mph.

An entry-level 650S Spider costs £215,000, with the extras on this model likely to push the price towards £250,000.
