Earlier this month, Lanark’s A702 proved too much for a supercar taking part in the annual motoring pilgrimage, the Gumball 3000.
The cross-Europe trek started in Dublin, before heading over to Edinburgh and then southward to continental Europe and Bucharest.
However, the rally hadn’t got as far as Lanark when a 224mph Gumpert Apollo — one of the rarest vehicles in the rally and part of the London Motor Museum — slid off the road between two concrete pillars. The car, which costs in excess of £1million, barely missed a tree before coming to rest mere inches from a telegraph pole.
Thankfully, neither driver nor passenger were injured and the car was also relatively undamaged — if a little muddy.

Earlier in the day, Peter Pan and Baywatch star, David Hasselhoff, had led the parade of supercars through Edinburgh’s city centre, posing for photos in front of Arthur’s Seat.
The Gumball 3000 is run in support of The Gumball 3000 Foundation, a non-profit charitable organisation established in 2013 to support disadvantaged young people through “opportunities, optimism and ambition for future generations.”
Hopefully, the rest of the rally goes off without further incident.
