$3.8m supercar crash-n-burn

The Koenigsegg One:1 supercar has suffered a testing setback in the form of a spectacular Nurburgring crash while going for a lap record. Koenigsegg admits that brake failure sent the F1- inspired honeycomb weave carbonfibre construction One:1 into the barriers at 170km/h. The crash was so huge it launched the car into the air for 22 metres.

The pain didnít stop when the car finally came to a stop, either, with the rear of the car briefly catching fire. Bummer.
