© Getty The driver of a McLaren supercar that crashed in Auckland last weekend is heading to court.

The 56-year-old man is due to appear in Auckland District Court on May 17 on a charge of driving in a dangerous manner.

The car crashed into a barrier on the Northwestern Motorway last Saturday.

A witness told the NZ Herald at the time a black McLaren supercar was in a ditch upside down.

It is the second crash of a McLaren in New Zealand to be followed by a court appearance.

Last December, businessman Barry Leigh Fitzgerald, 63, from Melbourne, was given diversion after crashing a multi-million-dollar McLaren F1 on the Glenorchy-Queenstown Road.

He was taking part in a tour of New Zealand by 31 McLaren cars honouring the late Bruce McLaren, the manufacturer's Kiwi founder.

McLaren F1 cars have sold for as much as $US13.5 million at auction.
