If one of my university english prof's is marking this post then I guess I'm fucked.
    Phew thanks. Doesn't that feel better? I know I feel better.

    haha I was just fucking with you man, but it's hard to tell over the internet unfortunately.

    Simple laws of physics wouldn't allow the two cars to end up in the positions they are at.

    Why not? What's makes you think it hit the slr head on??? If it hit the wheel well at an angle at about 40-60km/h I can easily see how it would end up like that.

    AFAIK, he sold the F1 shortly after the crash. But he has crashed and written off quite a few other cool/expensive cars at the track. Mr Bean roadraces .

    He was talking about cars and his racing hobby on Leno a few months ago hehe.

    Not a chop.

    I zoomed into the front right of the slr sharpened, brightened and increased the contrast a touch. You can definitely see some scratches on the fender and some dents in what looks like the plastic covering the bumper. The SLR is hiding its damage, I am sure the carbon fiber flexed and the returned to its normal shape but the supporting structures underneath are going to need replacing.

    Carbon fibre doesnt mean "invincible"... its weight (or lack thereof) are much more of a factor than its strength. I remember watching mountain bike videos where you would see a carbon fibre frame literally shatter after hitting the ground a bit too hard

    Hrm, are you sure that's the proper picture? I remember seeing the article years ago, and it showed minor damage to the front bumper. He also mentioned that the minor damage had cost him 80000 pounds to repair. IIRC, visually, it looked basically like a dented front end, nothing like that pic in that article .

    The lady in the Metro would've been killed on impact of the McLaren looked like that after hehe.
