As Hurricane Ian continues to batter Florida, a brand new McLaren P1 worth over $1 million is washed down the street in Naples by flood waters.
For the past 24 hours, the giant storm has ravaged the state, leaving a path of catastrophic ruin in its wake.
Authorities in Florida have warned that fatalities will number in the “hundreds” as dozens of people remain stuck on the roofs of their flooded homes and 2.5 million people are without electricity.
Ernie, a Florida guy hit by the hurricane, uploaded footage of his own tragic loss as his just acquired McLaren P1 was overwhelmed in flood waters, washed out of his garage and down the mansion-lined street that now resembled a roaring river.
The car enthusiast appears to have a fleet of luxury cars – which he shows off regularly on his Instagram account.
But the McLaren P1 has dominated the last 12 posts of Ernie’s account with the first starting a week ago when he posted that the car only had 300 miles on it. It was reportedly priced at over $1 million when it first went on sale.
On Wednesday evening, Ernie shared photos of his hurricane-ravaged Florida neighborhood in Naples where streets had turned into rivers. His garage – where the McLaren P1 and Rolls Royce were housed – was completely flooded and both vehicles were submerged in water.
In his most recent post, only the top of the bright yellow McLaren P1 could be seen as it floated down the street. His caption read: ‘Car went thru the garage.’
