McLaren P1 Flooded By Hurricane Ian After Just A Week Of Ownership

McLaren P1 – Unfortunately, the McLaren isn’t the only expensive car flooding its owner’s garage.

With the exception of some amphibious vehicles, cars are not intended to slide off roads and into bodies of water. Unfortunately, one of the 375 McLaren P1s in the world had to experience it because of Hurricane Ian, which has wreaked havoc in the southeastern US, particularly in Florida.

The yellow McLaren P1 here is owned by someone named Ernie, who goes by the Instagram name lambo9286. The man owns an impressive garage in Florida, and the latest vehicle to join his collection is the relatively new McLaren P1 which has just 300 miles of range. The limited-production hybrid supercar came to hers just a week ago based on the owner’s social media posts.

Unfortunately, flooding caused by Hurricane Ian forced his McLaren P1 out of the garage and onto the road. Ernie is quite diligent in providing updates about the flooded P1 to his followers, even documenting the moment before escaping from his garage.

Ernie’s latest update, which you can check out in the embedded social media post above (or via the source link below), sees the P1 on the street sitting on the toilet. It was a pretty bad situation, with everything going down the drain instantly.

Worse, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom’s owners also flooded and ended up on the streets after a wet ordeal. It is not yet known if there are other cars from Ernie’s collection that have the same fate. The video from the Instagram post embedded above shows the P1 and Wraith floating in flood water.


Needless to say, this was very costly damage to one’s property caused by the forces of nature. We really hope that this guy’s insurance has covered it, as has any other damage caused by the Florida floods.
