McLaren 12C Bursts Into Flames

A full investigation is underway after this British supercar went up in flames.

After picking up a Volcano Red McLaren 12C from the UK's Seasons Car Hire, one British driver was looking forward to attracting attention as he cruised around the capital in his supercar. While that’s exactly what he got, it was for all the wrong reasons. According to zero2turbo, the 12C’s rear compartment burst into flames for no apparent reason while driving in north London. Thankfully the driver escaped with only minor burns before the supercar melted into the tarmac. A full investigation is now being carried out by the rental car company, the insurance company and McLaren. Pics taken by William Bryce.
