Sometimes, speeding can seriously cost you.

A Northern Virginia driver totaled a newly purchased sports car by driving too fast and hitting a tree on Saturday, police say.

Fairfax County police posted a photo of the badly mangled $300,000 McLaren 720S leaning up against a relatively unscathed tree near a two-lane road in Great Falls, Virginia.

"Purchased Friday. Totaled Saturday," the Facebook post said.

Police attributed the crash to excessive speed and reminded drivers to slow down.

The driver was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police say.
