Probably not totaled, but a big repair bill for sure.

Reminds me of the underground racing 458 someone I know bought. He wrecked it a week or so ago the same weekend as concourse in Amelia island fvcking around on a 1/2 mile private airstrip after a festivals of speed car show, a few of my friends said they were going to an airstrip after the show...I didn't go because I had things to do afterwards. Basically he ran out of room and ran off the end of the runway. RIP ferrari. He has a yellow Enzo too...glad it wasn't that.

Could go either way... There have been times where I've nearly been merged into by people not paying attention.

No matter how noble you are, I think there's no way you ca admit fault here it being a rear ender. Either bribe the other guy or lie lie lie and them send him 5k anonymously after he gets cited for rear ending you...

Did he total it? Or was he rear ended at the fault of the other driver?

I would retitle this thread Guy Picks Up His Matte Black McLaren : And Gets it Totaled It That Afternoon

The way you worded it implies he wrecked it and I half expected to see a Mclaren wrapped around a tree

Well im on my way to school and this punk ass kid pulls up next to me. i look over and its a fricken nissan senta type r or some ****. The dude had rims exhaust and some homosexual looking stickers on his whip. Anyway he's reving his engine and everyone is looking at him like wtf is this kid doing. Well the green light flashes and he just spins his tires and im looking at them while starting normaly as in traffic. i also didnt turn off my asc. Well i couldnt let his punk ass think like hes all bad so i just flored it. the thing was that from 1st to second i was only inching away from him but when i hit 3rd it was as if i turned on some nitrous, it was crazy. I was surprised that i couldnt pull any harder through second. Well we stopped at the red light ahead and this fool didnt even want to look over. lol man what a chump thinking he can out do our whips Anywayz it was fun and thought id share. anyone know what performance mod would increase our torque. Im thinking headers but im not sure. Peace

From the pixels. And from seeing quite a few paintjobs.
