A test driver has written off a prototype of BMW’s upcoming i8 hybrid supercar after skidding off a greasy trunk road near the Bavarian town of Freising.

“He was going a little bit too fast,” police spokesman Nikolaus Bischof told Germany’s Autobild gazette. The 30-year-old pilot was not breaking the limit, but the speed at which he was travelling was “not appropriate considering the wet road conditions.” The test driver lost control of the exclusive petrol-electric sports car which crashed into a metal barrier and spun around to face traffic on the wrong side of the road.
