Now Even Rarer: McLaren Senna LM Edition Crashed in Monaco

The McLaren Senna LM edition can be a lot to handle. It’s a track-focused, street-legal hypercar, and with such amount of power going to the rear wheels, it might be quite a lot for most drivers, even the most talented ones.

The Senna LM is one of the rarest cars in the world, with only 20 of them built as a tribute to the legendary F1 pilot Ayrton Senna in 1995 after he won all of his drivers championships with McLaren.

Sadly, former F1 driver Adrian Sutil has recently crashed his McLaren Senna LM into a utility pole in Monaco. Social media is flooded with the pictured of the crashed vehicles and a video even shows the smashed car being carried away on a flatbed tow truck.  Luckily, when first-responders arrived, the German pilot was sitting next to the car, apparently unharmed.

Though it is not clear how the crash happened, the accident left the car in a complete wreck with broken mechanical pieces of equipment and shattered fiberglass. The crash caused substantial damage to the front of the McLaren. However, the passenger side appears to be entirely intact.

The McLaren Senna LM is a very expensive car, and usually costs around £1,248,000. Only 6 of these were ever manufactured and sold. The vehicle comes with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces plenty of oomph and a variety of optional features. Just to name a few, it even comes with gold-painted wishbones, a 24 karat gold-lined dynamo, and four unique gold exhaust tips. The engine of this car can produce up to 789bhp, 590lb ft of torque, and attain a 208mph top speed. It can accelerate up to 62mph in only 2.8 seconds and reach 124mph in just 4 more seconds. And if that’s still not enough, hold the gas pedal to the floor a little longer and the speedometer should be showing 186mph only 11 seconds later.

Unfortunately, there are very few chances of the vehicle being repaired as it’s so expensive, the damages are considerable and replacement parts might be just impossible to come by.
