Ultra-Rare McLaren Senna LM Crashed in Monaco

  • Just a handful of Senna LMs in the world

  • Only seven reported painted in orange


It looks like even for retired Formula One drivers, the McLaren Senna LM might be just a little too much car. That as former series driver Adrian Sutil’s ultra-rare McLaren was binned in Monaco over the weekend.

The McLaren Senna LM is one of just 20 or so the automaker built to celebrate the F1 LM’s success at Le Mans back in the 1990s. It’s a faster, rarer version of the Senna that’s based on the GTR track car and makes somewhere around 900 hp.

There are no photos of German racing driver Sutil, who drove seven seasons in F1 for Spyker, Force India, and Sauber (and more infamously convicted of assaulting the owner of the Lotus F1 team in a Shanghai nightclub in 2013), behind the wheel of the car, but the photos are all over social media claiming he was the driver and that it is his car.

The comments say that Sutil lost control of the car and went nose-first into a stone wall, possibly resembling his crash at the Monaco GP in 2013.

After the photos, a short video appeared on Reddit of the sad-looking orange car being unceremoniously hauled away on the back of a flatbed. With much of its carbon fibre bodywork ratchet strapped to the shell. While it looks bad, this is an extremely valuable car, and we have no doubt that the team back at head office in Woking will be able to bring it back to life. After significant sums change hands, of course.
