Expensive cars crashing always gets views on social media and this one is no different, an Aston Martin Valkyrie is almost written off in this close shave.
The incident took place at the Silverstone race circuit while storming down the main straight as onlookers recorded the gorgeous V12-powered hypercar.
The unknown driver manages to deal with the snap oversteer and direct the car away from the pitlane wall, Zero2Turbo reports.

"Seems to hear some crack there, but the car shows strength, so does the driver."
Adam Christo says:
"Holy S&!¥ sooooo close. Lucky escape, not many people have a touch with the wall here and drive off."
"Lucky escape the last time I saw a crash happen at this corner was at the Ferrari silverstone event, one of the mid 2000’s F1 cars came around the corner to slow, no downforce and then punched it and drove straight into that wall. The car was that badly damaged it was sent to Italy straight away with damage of around 4.5 million pounds."
