Watch as $1million McLaren hypercar is washed away by Hurricane Ian as streets turn to rivers in ‘apocalyptic’ storm | The Sun

World News

DRAMATIC footage shows the moment a $1million McLaren is washed away by catastrophic hurricane Ian that continues to batter Florida.

In a painful clip for car lovers, the luxury hypercar can be seen submerged in flood water after it was pushed out of the garage it was parked.



The video showing the McLaren P1 washed out on the street was shared on social media by its owner, with car lovers branding it "heartbreaking."

What makes it even more "painful" is that it appears the supercar was bought only a week ago.

In a picture shared on Instagram when he first bought it, the owner said: "Only 300 miles on it. Time too add to it!"

But a week later, he posted a photo of the submerged car with the caption: "Car went thru the garage."

The apocalyptic storm has left a trail of destruction in its path, turning streets into rivers, trapping people in flooded homes and even plunging an entire country into darkness.

Hurricane Ian made landfall in Cayo Costa, Florida, on Wednesday, with winds recorded at 155 miles per hour.


In Port Charlotte, along Florida's Gulf Coast, the storm surge flooded a lower-level emergency room in a hospital even as fierce winds ripped away part of the roof from its intensive care unit, according to Dr. Birgit Bodine of HCA Florida Fawcett Hospital.

Following the storm's landfall, a tornado warning was issued for Osceola County and parts of Brevard County.
