Man loses his McLaren P1 in Hurricane Ian in Florida a week after buying it - Watch the video!

Last Wednesday (28), the strong hurricane Ian hit the state of Florida, with very strong winds and torrential rains causing serious material damage.

The intensity of this hurricane was classified as a Category 4 storm, with winds reaching speeds of up to 240 km/h.

Hurricane Ian mainly hit the coast of Cayo Costa in the southwestern part of the United States. Among those directly affected by the floods was American citizen Ernie, owner of the Instagram profile Lambo9286.

Ernie lost his yellow Mc Laren P1, which was dragged out of his car. garage, ending up in the flooded streets.

Considering the P1's famous see-through mesh on the rear, there's no doubt that water also got into the engine and EV bits.

To make matters worse, Ernie stated that he had purchased the McLaren P1 1 week ago, the model had 300 miles on the odometer (480 km).

According to comments on his Instagram profile, Ernie also lost his Rolls-Royce Ghost.

It is worth remembering that Ernie's car is number 348 of 375 units built. McLaren P1 values are slowly increasing to US$ 2 million, with current estimates at US$ 1.7 million.

Ernie probably had insurance, but it will be impossible to find a replacement car. Thankfully, McLaren's MSO department still has everything it needs to fix a P1 and even released updates for the car earlier this year.

Check out the video that shows Ernie's McLaren P1 being dragged during Hurricane Ian:
