Oh, the humanity!
Ok, so apparently if you are taking your McLaren out of long-term storage, make sure you have a Halon fire extinguisher (or 6) handy. This unlucky chap sprung his F1 from the lockup after a six month nap, and it turned into a veritable roman candle very quickly. Make the jump for more photos of the carnage.
The tears of every clown in the world won't make this right.
The sad thing is, as you can see above, the car was a total loss. Luckily for unlucky owner in question, it was insured for $3 million, and valued at $2 million. If it turns out this is an insurance scam, I’ll be the first to grab a pitchfork and torches. That nefarious insinuation aside, it is a tragedy that it was destroyed, as only 106 were produced.
