This is painful to even look at 😢

Reminded me of this:


I think this happened because the driver didn’t understand the automatic hold function on inclines.

the car suddenly locks on the incline and then maybe a few attempts to disengage the hold with the gas pedal lead to this monstrosity.

Any other ideas?

That post on the drive happened in the UK and the guy had only just picked up the car.
I once read his explanation.

He was bending to do something (like get the garage fob out of the glove box or something) then pressed the accelerator instead of the brake.

How was this perfectly captured on camera?

Did his insurance cover him?!

Presumably his premium quadrupled?

Poor guy!

I always thought after watching the video in the past that they accidentally initiated launch control!

From a previous thread on here about it...

So ... here's the scoop from someone who says they are from the area.
Driver took delivery of car 2 hrs prior to this episode.
Was at friends house to show it to them.
Had the car in brake 'hold'.
Reached to back seat to grab an item and hit the accelerator by accident while twisting around to turn back.
Being new to the car's power, did not react in time.

To be honest, I can’t blame him. I get mad when people park in my spot as well!

Man, I just keep looking at the image of the deformed pole and wall - let alone lifting a Macan onto your roof!! - and think what the heck kind of speed was this person doing on impact - out of control!

This happened in Madrid and apparently because of excess speed the lady lost control of her Taycan and lifted her own Macan parked on the street, onto her roof and stopped when she crashed into a wall opposite her house. Fortunately no other cars or bystanders were hit by the lady.
I am aware that car insurance policies in Spain do not cover accidents that happen to involve another vehicle owned by the party guilty of said accident. Ask me how I know :facepalm::headbang: … my son crashed into my first AMG while reversing with his first car !
