Yesterday, on August 8, 2023, a photo of the scene of an accident involving a luxury SUV bearing the brand Porsche Macan S went viral on social media. It was reported that the accident occurred in the Dan Nhiem village, Van Giang town, Van Giang district, Hung Yen province.
The specific cause of this accident is still unclear. It is known that the luxury car crashed into a traffic signal pole on the side of the road. The strong impact deformed the right front corner of the car and pushed the bonnet backwards. The airbag inside the car deployed.
Fortunately, there were no casualties in this accident. Upon receiving the report, the authorities quickly arrived at the scene to regulate traffic, examine the scene, and investigate the cause of the accident.
According to sources, this Porsche Macan S belongs to the football player Vu Van Thanh. The defender recently purchased the luxury car from Phan Cong Khanh’s K-Super showroom in June this year.
Specifically, 2 weeks before his arrest, Khanh “Supper” shared that he had chosen a Porsche Macan for Vu Van Thanh. The car has a gray exterior with black accents in a sporty style. Inside the Porsche Macan S of the defender from the Hanoi club is a red leather interior.
Vu Van Thanh has reportedly spent a significant amount of money on this luxury car. Meanwhile, an official Porsche Macan S is priced up to 4.4 billion VND.
The “heart” of the Porsche Macan S is a 2.9L, twin-turbocharged, 6-cylinder petrol engine, producing a maximum power output of 375 horsepower. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission, allowing the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 259 km/h with the Sport Chrono package.
Vu Van Thanh is not the only football player to own a luxury car in Vietnam. Other famous players such as forward Quang Hai, defender Duy Manh, defender Doan Van Hau, goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung, forward Tien Linh, and defender Bui Tien Dung have also purchased luxury cars, mainly from the Mercedes-Benz brand.
