A McLaren Senna made the news earlier this week after colliding with another vehicle on the A217 near Southend, Essex.
The incident was part of a three car pile up where one of the automobiles involved was left resting rather uncomfortably on its side, while roadside assistance placed the damaged McLaren onto a truck. According to The Sun, the Senna was to take part in a supercar exhibit this weekend.
We’ve also learned that emergency services were at the scene but nobody was seriously injured in the accident, which is both fortunate given the sheer amount of debris scattered around the crash site and the fact that one vehicle was on its side.
This is the second Senna accident in nearly as many months, after another owner crashed his example in Munich, Germany at the end of October. That incident however wasn’t nearly as serious as this one and didn’t involve any other cars.
The limited edition hypercar is one of the fastest things on four wheels, capable of hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), thanks to its 800 PS (789 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. McLaren will only built 500 units in total and they were all spoken for even before the Senna’s official unveiling at the end of last year.
