A driver speeding down a Chongqing road was left with nothing but a useless hunk of metal after crashing his Koenigsegg into a barricade at the side of the road during the early hours of the morning.
According to NetEase, the accident took place at around midnight in the city’s Yubei district. The front of the car was extensively damaged, with additional damage incurred along the side of the chassis.
After photos were posted online, car lovers quickly identified the brand and determined its retail price in the Chinese market was 26.5 million yuan ($4.1 million).
A witness said the driver was a young man who remained seated inside the car until a tow truck removed the car over two hours later. Fortunately as there were few people on the street at the time of the incident, no-one was injured.
Earlier this year in Shanghai, the teenage driver of a 22.5 million yuan limited edition Ferrari wrote the car off after speeding down the highway in the rain.
