The trio of supercars all met their sorry fate due to that most dangerous of cocktails: high speed and wet weather. It also appears that during the past week a Maserati GranTurismo crashed on the same stretch of the A7, the driver of which had only bought the car a few hours previously. The next car to fall foul of driving in the wet on a road with no speed restrictions was the MP4-12C, which was being piloted by a 27-year-old. That took place on Friday. On the Saturday, the driver of a 612hp Dodge Viper ACR rental crashed having signed off on the car just three hours beforehand.

A couple of hours later and the Corvette was the final victim to this patently dangerous stretch of German road. According to Hersfelder Zeitung, no-one was seriously injured in any of the crashes although the McLaren was confirmed as a write-off and the Maserati looks to be going that way too.
