The powerful sports car smashed into Cafe in South Africa.
Apparently, the cause was a mistaken accelerator prod, instead of the brake pedal.
The Jaguar F-Type SVR has a 575-horsepower supercharged V8.
No one was hurt when the Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe landed on a cafe’s outdoor terrace. Luckily, it was raining outside so no one was eating outside, but diners still scrambled for safety.
Mistakes happen to everyone. Although it would be easy to make fun of the Jaguar’s driver and point fingers and call them names, mistakes happen… The driver error was stabbing the throttle instead of the brake pedal, which evidently launched the 575-horsepower supercharged V8 Jaguar F-Type SVR through at least one barrier post and onto chairs and tables.
But the number plate is the real cherry on this sundae. There would be no story if it wasn’t for the slightly obnoxious “2FAST4U” staring back at onlookers. The driver was, according to the story on yahoo news, visibly embarrassed by the incident, as any of us would be. We think said driver may have thought about the number plate and also considered the irony between it and the situation the Jaguar was in.
We’re tempted to joke about the plate but we will remain civil. Might we, however, suggest changing the number plate once the car is repaired – it’s going to be famous from now on and it’ll never go unnoticed.
