SEATTLE – Well, that ended badly.

The Washington State Patrol says someone rented a McLaren, drove it too fast for the wet conditions and crashed the car on Interstate 5 early Thursday morning.

By the way, the base price for the ultra-premium British car is $265,000.

Trooper Rick Johnson says the driver was not impaired. The crash happened at 1:30 a.m. on northbound I-5 at Olive Way.

It did not appear that anyone was seriously hurt.

This isn't the first luxury car to wreck on Western Washington highways.

Last summer, a 23-year-old man was booked for DUI and attempting to elude police after he crashed a rented Lamborghini in Edmonds.

Then in November, another rented Lamborghini crashed in Bellevue damaging a guardrail and the expensive car.
