This is the extraordinary moment a boy racer wiped out £1million of supercars including a McLaren, Porsche and a Bentley in a crash compared to a scene from a ‘Fast and the Furious’ movie today.
The driver of an Audi Q7 4×4 lost control of his vehicle and ploughed into a row of 11 luxury supercars in Moore Street, Chelsea at just after midnight – but has not yet been arrested because he is in hospital.
Astonishing footage obtained by MailOnline shows two cars speeding along a street near Sloane Square just moments before the crash.

The Audi Q7 chases after a Porsche but loses control and slams into a row of parked cars, flipping over at high speed and cartwheeling down the road.
Summer Haider rushed outside her home and said: ‘I really thought there had been some sort of explosion, like a helicopter coming down’.
She added: ‘The driver got out. There was blood coming from his head and he started to say he was being chased. Having seen some CCTV we now know that was a lie’.
Witnesses estimated that 11 luxury cars worth a total of £1million were smashed into.
They said the carnage had caused at least £500,000-worth of damage with many of the cars written off.
A McLaren worth around £300,000 was destroyed along with a Porsche Cayenne worth £100,000, a blue Bentley Bentayga worth £200,000 a Porsche 911, two Audi Q7 model and another Porsche.
A resident told MailOnline that the street – which is a wide road where the average home costs £4.5million – has a big problem with boy racers speeding along the road late at night, particularly in the summer months.
She said that people are often walking along the street late a night following an evening spent at the bars and restaurants, adding it was a ‘miracle’ no one was killed.
‘It was very lucky no pedestrians were around,’ she said. ‘If any other vehicle had been coming down the street they would have been history.’
The woman said the Audi driver emerged ‘dazed and in shock from the vehicle covered in blood with flesh exposed on the right side of his head all the way down to his skull. He also had some hair missing.
‘He was clearly in shock and had no idea how badly injured he was. He was saying he was chasing a car that had previously bashed into him. I didn’t believe him at the time but looking at the CCTV, there appears to be two cars in the footage.
‘I made him sit on a bench until paramedics arrived,’ she added.
Another wealthy resident told MailOnline: ‘It’s very dangerous. We’ve lived here for two years and have had to deal with this for a while.
’11 cars were damaged – my three cars, the blue McLaren, the Porsche Cayenne and the navy blue Bentley Bentayga were all damaged. We feel lucky [not to have been hurt].’
Residents said super cars racing along the deserted streets around Belgravia and Sloane Square has become an increasing problem.
They say most of those racing Arabs visiting London for the summer and the driver of the car involved in the crash is believed to be from the Middle East.
For years residents of Chelsea and Knightsbridge have complained about drag-racing of supercars through their streets, especially during the summer months.
Neighbours told MailOnline how they ran outside fearing the worst and found the driver staggering around with blood pouring from his head.
He was taken to hospital where he remains with a serious head injury that is not considered life threatening.
Eyewitnesses described the aftermath as something out of the Hollywood film ‘Fast and the Furious’ that involves spectacular car chases and crashes.

Summer Haider rushed outside her home in Moore Street after hearing what she thought was a helicopter crashing in the street.
‘I really thought there had been some sort of explosion, like a helicopter coming down,’ she said.
‘There was just carnage. A Porsche that had been parked in the road was pushed up on the pavement and was in the metal railings.
‘I went over to the car and the driver got out. There was blood coming from his head and he started to say he was being chased. Having seen some CCTV we now know that was a lie.
‘He was taken away in an ambulance and the other car just disappeared.’
‘It is terrifying to think of what could have happened’.
Vicar’s wife Elizabeth Neville said she too was woken by the sound of the collision that involved a total of 10 cars.
‘There was lots of shouting a swearing from guy after the crash. It was mayhem.’
‘There have been cars racing down here before. What worries me is that around the time the crash happened my daughter is sometimes walking home. It is just awful.’
The Audi Q7 slammed into a McClaren sports car, Bentley and two Porches. Two of the cars belonged to a resident who was on holiday at the time.
One of the Porches’s remained parked in the street with its front bonnet caved in while the others had been towed away.
Glass and other debris from the wrecked cars still lay on the pavement and in the front garden on the £3m home where the front railings were damaged.
Viola Pemberton-Pigot, whose front black railings were destroyed was at her basement kitchen sink when the crash happened.

She said: ‘Luckily I was behind curtains and did not see it, but I certainly heard the crash. It was an terrible noise
‘All the neighbours came out. I don’t think they could really believe but we are all just grateful that no one was hurt. It could have been so much worse.
