    "Just a lap around the block"
    It doesn't matter that they weren't racing anyone else - that car had some speed to end up looking like that.

    We will need to wait for forensic crash investigators to determine if it was a mechanical malfunction or pilot error. Either way, vehicles do not disintegrate like the one in the photo above unless they are going at some speed.
    Don't ever go that fast on roads that you share with the public, which are roads designed for suburban traffic. It doesn't matter if your car is designed to go 200mph if the road is designed for 40mph.

    If you do want to have fun driving fast, get yourself some training and a motor sport endorsement on your license and most importantly, join a club that does track days so you can do your thing somewhere designed for high speed.
