Last week, a newly delivered McLaren Senna crashed into a wall in Munich, Germany. Apparently, the crash happened on the same day the owner took delivery of the car, which had less than 100 km on the clock.
The Senna, which is specced in a very subtle dark green with black calipers was owned by a 43-year old business man. Judging by the tyre marks in the photos, it is likely that the driver lost control of the rear end while trying to accelerate hard. The angle of the photo isn’t ideal to know the damage but the impact was severe enough for the airbags to deploy. It is said that the car sent out a signal to the dealership after the accident and the recovery team reached the site within minutes. The damage the car might be superficial and a quick trip to the body shop should fix it.
The Senna is a track-oriented machine featuring extreme aerodynamics capable of producing a staggering 800 kg of downforce at 250 km/h. The powertrain is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 789 hp and 590 lb-ft. Only 500 units of the Senna are to be built and this is the first recorded accident of the car.
