Top Gear's Chris Evans prangs his McLaren at Carfest

Future Top Gear host Chris Evans regretted taking his McLaren 650S to Carfest this weekend – as a hapless driver reversed a trailer into it.

According to The Sun, Evans was about to pull away in the supercar on Monday morning when a car towing a trailer reversed back into it.

Witnesses said the television and radio presenter seemed unperturbed by the collision, leaving his passenger to exchange details as 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 home in Surrey, and in 2001 Radio 2 presenter Vanessa Feltz reversed her Mini into his Ferrari 599 GTO.
