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.
