Angry First Crash - Jaguar F-Type!

Following the Corvette Stingray's footsteps, the drop-dead grogeous Jaguar F-Type too has stuck itself to a wall before it even went on sale.

The crash apparently happened when a team of journalists were pitching it against its rivals for a car magazine.

That is really sad considering it is a yet to be launched supercar.Whichever journalist was behind the wheel was just plain unlucky. Such a beautiful car gone to waste.
O.T. The magazine whichever was testing the car will have to pay for the repair,right???

Most curious to know the circumstances before the crash. The gutter on the side indicates some wetness - melting snow/ice perhaps?
Was that a probable cause?

No, these tests are insured for and hence the journalist or the magazine will not have to pay for the repair.
