Owner Crashed Brand New McLaren Senna Just Hours After Taking Delivery

On Saturday, someone crashed a $1 million McLaren Senna. in Germany. And if that alone isn’t bad enough, the owner had only just taken delivery of the brand new British exotic.

The image of the crash that was shared on social media shows the hypercar facing a wall, in what is believed to be the Grunwald suburb of Munich, Germany.

Although we cannot point the exact damages suffered by this McLaren Senna, it’s quite clear that it’s not a write-off. However, crashing into the wall after the driver probably lost control of the wheel did leave a few bruises on the front end, and the impact was severe enough to trigger the front airbags.

The McLaren Senna in question was allegedly delivered to its owner last Saturday, according to a post made on Instagram by McLaren Munich, and the crash appears to have happened a few hours later.

To our knowledge, this is the first recorded accident of the McLaren Senna, a limited edition hypercar, named after the legendary Ayrton Senna. All 500 units had been spoken for before its unveiling last December, despite the eye-watering price tag of nearly $1 million.

A lot of work has went into the model that’s capable of hitting 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, from a standstill, and a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). The 800 PS (789 hp / 589 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque makes it less powerful than the McLaren P1, but it’s apparently faster on any track than the hybrid hypercar, or so the automaker claims.

    that’s what happens when Maldonado is behind the wheel

  • Mr. EP9

    Well, not surprised. This happens a lot. It reminds me about a Hellcat owner who had something similar happen to him.

    • Tim Gardner

      Seem to remember a beautiful red Porsche Carrera GT that was reduced to a smouldering pile. All anyone could worry about were the occupants, not the fact they must’ve been doing something pretty stupid in the first place.

    what is genuinely sad is that magnificent machines like this are purchased by people needing to spend billions of excess dollars absent experience with speed

  • salamOOn

    Those early crashes after delivery should be classified as a crime….

    • LeStori

      So stupidity is a crime? If we locked up the “stupid” in our community there would not be enough people left to do the work.

  • Matthew Boyd

    For some reason this doesn’t bother me, but if it were a P1 it would. 🤔Humm…don’t ask me why.

    • DR.FUNK

      It’s because the P1 is gorgeous.
      This critter was designed by some dude who was clearly a Transformers fan boi.

    Money can’t buy you talent…

  • I bet the repair cost isn’t going to be cheap.

  • Vassilis

    Great colour! Interestingly, the front damage doesn’t look too bad for the airbags to be deployed.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Damnit!

  • TurboScooter

    Why not learn how to drive a car of this caliber first? Get thyself to a ‘driving school’!

  • Liam Paul

    I would never pay 1 million dollars for a car, never ever.

    Brother in law was getting his BMW serviced and was talking to a salesman and the salesman said a kid picked up his brand new M5 one day and when the salesman called the kid a few hours later to see how he is enjoying his car he found out that he kid totaled it a few hours later. Next day his parents came in and bought him another one.
    Cousin bought a Volvo a long time ago and when the salesman asked if he had insurance before rolling off of the lot and my cousin said yes, why? The salesman told him that the other day a lady rolled off the lot with her brand new Volvo and didn’t have insurance on it and another car ran a light and totaled her new Volvo at the light.

    All you fools got it wrong. This was intentional. He was just honoring the vehicle’s namesake.
