In case you haven't seen one of these before, this is a Zonda GR, a race-going version of the mental Italian hypercar we all know and love. Weighing in at just 1100kg and producing 600hp, the GR was built with the intention of tackling the 2003 Le Mans 24 Hours, which it sadly failed to finish.
In the video below, the Zonda GR - being driven at full pelt - is given a punt in the rear by another car, which pitches the GR sharply into the wall at around 140kmh. The car then re-bounds across the track and the driver makes his escape. This GT business certainly does seem to have its risks.
Enjoy the noise. Wince at the smash.
