By now, you’ve probably realized that we’re not very big on shed-built supercars, especially the British type. But when we heard that a 1994 Spectre R42 was crashed in Sweden, we know we had the perfect story for our U-Turn section.
This car finished in Gulf Racing colors is 18 years old now, but its owners probably still enjoys the thrills it has to offer. The accident was recently reported on by Wrecked Exotics, and they say it took place at a roundabout in
Sweden. The car skid off the road and into a nearby ditch, but thankfully nobody was injured.

The Spectre R42 was designed and built in England by Spectre Supersports. The body is built from a rigid composite shell to keep weight down. Power comes from a 4.6-liter Ford V8 with 350 horsepower. It was supposed to be a spiritual successor to the original Ford GT.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
