THE future host of Top Gear, Chris Evans, must have kicked himself for taking his McLaren 650S to a car-fest last weekend, as a luckless driver didn’t use his mirrors and reversed a trailer into it.
According to UK daily The Sun, Evans was about to drive away in his McLaren supercar on Monday morning when a car towing a trailer reversed into it.
Witnesses said the television and radio presenter seemed unruffled by the collision, and left his passenger to exchange details while he drove off.
Evans is a well-known petrolhead, but is planning to auction off a number of his cars at Goodwood Revival later this month.
It’s not the first time he’s been involved in a prang; in 2005, he crashed a Ferrari 550 Maranello near his Surrey home, and in 2001, Radio 2 presenter Vanessa Feltz reversed her Mini into his Ferrari 599 GTO.
