Salomondrin Discuses His McLaren Senna Fire, Confirms It Wasn’t Involved In Crash

YouTube personality Salomondrin has released a new video where he talks about his McLaren Senna which recently caught on fire in Los Angeles.

While the clip doesn’t actually show the fire, Salomondrin says he didn’t crash the car and it “just caught on fire.” There’s no word on what caused this to happen, but the YouTuber suggests that an investigation underway.

Regardless of the cause, Salomondrin says he had a blast with the Senna and “driving it was a dream.” He went on to say that he put around 400 miles (643 km) on the car in just 11 days.

Salomondrin doesn’t seem too upset about the incident as he says there was nothing he could do once the Senna caught on fire. He’s just thankful that no one got hurt. Salomondrin went on to say the car was insured, but he doesn’t know if he’ll get another one.

While it’s a bit disappointing that the video doesn’t include footage of the fire, Salomondrin said he managed to take several clips of the incident and they will be released sometime in the near future. Despite the lack of footage, previous pictures have shown the car was extensively damaged in the blaze.

As you may recall, the Senna is a limited production model which is part of McLaren’s Ultimate Series. Billed as the “most extreme road car McLaren has ever built,” the Senna features a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that produces 789 hp (588 kW / 800 PS) and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h).

Only 500 units will be built and all of them have already been spoken for despite the Senna’s base price of $958,966.

      Of course McClaren will build him a new car if he hand in the original serial number plate and the carcass.

    Supercars are notorious for catching on fire, yet almost every owner is like: “Meh, when it started to burn, there was nothing to do. It was insured, so yeah, whatever… Fire extinguisher??? Why would I bother with such a thing in my million+ dollar car? I have a cellphone and I promptly recorded some clips. You see, that way I’ll be able to squeeze some additional money. Fire extinguisher… Don’t be ridiculous… Oh, I almost forgot… I’m so happy that noone was injured!!! (Especially my pretty face…). Money are not important. Sooo, stay tuned on my channel, burning Senna coming soon!”

    McLaren will deal with him very nicely with their warranty because that’s a limited edition hypercar owned by a car youtuber with a 1,5 Million subscriber which caught fire. So if McLaren treats him badly that would be a disaster for their image.

  • David Crandon

    I smell bullshit. Why wouldn’t he just come right out and tell people why it caught on fire. Most likely cause that I can think of, is continually revving it while in neutral, and the exhaust flames caught something on fire.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    When rich people buy cars, set them on fire, then say they don’t care, they shouldn’t have had one in the first place.

      What’s he supposed to do? Lose sleep over it? He buys and sells property for a living, has been known as a car flipper (that’s why Porsche screwed him on the GT2 RS and he cried like a baby), so he’s used to letting go of things. The only time he was upset was over the GT2 RS because Porsche didn’t let him get his way and with Pagani because he was upset that his car was the slowest car in the hypercar race, so he sold it. Pagani was upset and said it was because he was running on street tires and he should of called them for tires, which he said he did and didn’t get a response. Only reason why those two things bothered him was because it hurt his ego. So he decided to talk crap about Porsche and Pagani. He talked crap about McLaren a few years ago also, but since Porsche basically black balled him now and Pagani would probably never sell him a car again, and Ferrari also hates him, he now has only Mercedes, McLaren, and Lamborghini to turn to, even though he said Lamborghini wasn’t his type of car after getting rid of his Aventador basically right after he bought it.

      Ale is the type of guy who buys cars as a status symbol. Sure he loves cars, but only the exclusive ones, the flamboyant “look at me, my G Wagon has the most arrogant wrap on it and has 4 feet of ground clearance”, or the ones that are setting track records, even though his driving skills will never come close to accomplishing.

      Besides, the insurance company is probably paying him market value for the Senna since it’s ultra exclusive. That means he basically getting a $hit load of money, more money than if he were to flip the car for profit since he cut out the middle man.

      • Some ol’ bloke

        Yeah, but would you be that relaxed if a one in 500 car worth the same price as 4 big houses+ just got wrecked?

        Ps: How long did that reply take to write?:)

  • Knotmyrealname

    Just another chance to put his mug on camera again it seems. I’ll never recover that time back again. Thank god I fast forwarded through it.

      Then why even click play, stupid a$$. You wasted your time by clicking on the link, read the article, and then post a comment. You sir just proved to everyone how much of an attention wh0re loser you are.

      • Knotmyrealname

        There was a vain attempt at maybe seeing the actual car. Relax, you over-excited troll, I didn’t even listen to the audio. The whole life sapping event stole about 40 seconds from my life.

  • ➡️ProtectOurHeritage⬅️

    He dropped his joint?

  • BlackPegasus

    Are the comments on his YouTube channel disabled for everyone or just me? I may have been blocked from his comment section long ago for not swallowing the garbage videos he produces.

    • Blade t

      If you dislike his videos so much ,why do you watch them ?

      • BlackPegasus

        I no longer watch his videos but I do frequent this website where the story was first reported.

    • American Hustle

      You must think you’re some kind of special. No it’s disabled, moron. If you’re blocked, it would say something like comment can’t be posted at this time. And you’re not the first and only person who talk crap about him, I went as far as to talk about his terrorist leeching friend Farshad and the crap click bait useless vlogs he’s been producing over the past year or so, and I was never blocked.

      • BlackPegasus

        You called his friend a “terrorist” and I’m the moron?

        Okay 🙄

      • My name is Shayan
