Authorities said seat belts saved the lives of two individuals who crashed their $300,000 supercar in the middle of the desert in Nevada, but the car’s designers deserve a share of the credit.

Last week, the Nevada Highway Patrol discovered the totaled McLaren 720 roughly 70 yards off the road near Lake Mead, with damage indicating that it had rolled at least once as it merely missed plunging down a ravine.

The 710 horsepower vehicle is one of the fastest vehicles in the world and can approach a top speed of 212 mph. It includes a carbon fiber passenger cell, similar to that of a racecar, that’s made to be both lightweight and strong.

Despite the massive collision, which left parts of the car scattered, at least one of its butterfly-style doors still functioned after the incident, Fox News reported.

According to authorities, neither of the occupants was seriously wounded. They weren’t there when the car was recovered. After examining the area, officers learned that they had gotten themselves to a local hospital to be treated for scrapes and bruises.

The car was participating in a cross-country exotic car rally, which is a gathering of supercar owners who stay in high-end hotels and hold parties at each stop.
