It’s almost impossible to tell, but the car above is a Nissan GT-R. The man at the wheel was Russian soccer star Andrey Yeshchenko, and he was reportedly traveling at over 105 mph when he drilled a street lamp in the town of Krasnodar. Amazingly, the CCTV footage below shows Yeshchenko walking away from the wreckage just seconds after his destroyed GT-R comes to a rest.
Yeshchenko is a defensive player on the Russian soccer team Kuban Krasnodar. It’s unclear from the video what caused him to lose control, but what is clear is that he hits the post with unfathomable force.
Fortunately for him, the passenger side of the car took the brunt of the impact. Yeshchenko was said to be in shock after the crash, but otherwise unharmed. He will return to the field soon, a very lucky boy.
As for the $100,000 GT-R, well, that’s another story. There is basically nothing left of it, beyond the driver’s compartment that remains mostly still intact — sort of. With a 0-60 mph time of 2.7 seconds, we’ve long known that the GT-R is one seriously quick supercar. Now we know it’s pretty darn strong as well.
