Young men and supercars are the simplest recipe for the heady brew of smashed supercars we all love and yet hate to quaff. The latest bottling has produced the utterly destroyed Gumpert Apollo you see above.

While it's only marginally less attractive in 100-mph-yardsale form than with all of its parts attached, the once-mighty supercar is reduced to rubble, never to see another apex. Perhaps unfortunately for the supercar species, the 20-year-old driver of the borrowed Apollo and his 19-year-old female passenger escaped with only minor injuries.

The reason for the accident? Inexperience and testosterone, whatever the particular circumstances.

  1. These damn kids have got to stop curbing the straight these days. Especially when driving with a girl in the car. What, do they think these cars come with DFGs these day? Heh? Heh? ah you don't care.

  2. Damn minor injuries only? Look at whats left of the car. What does that thing have a 5 star crash test rating?

  3. Do you know what frustrates me as much as young kids playing with daddy's fortune, educated people that still don't know how to structure a sentence.

  4. Dom, you must curb the straight a lot.

  5. Wow, minor injuries. Now that is amazing, seeing what is left of the car. I also cannot believe there was a passenger in the vehicle while this kid ran a amok.
