Did you actually run out of oil before you noticed? I've had a perforated oil filter before (I still don't know how that happened) and luckily I was going slow and within pushing distance of home when the oil light came on. I caught that in time, but it would only take a few seconds at high speed for damage to be done.

Without hearing the rattle it'd be just guesses as to what's happened. Something has worn though inside the engine. Best case it's just cam wear, worst case main bearings.

If you can record the noise and upload the file it might help?
