Images have emerged online of a wrecked McLaren Senna LM, believed to be owned by former Formula One driver Adrian Sutil.

The photos were posted on Instagram showing the bright orange McLaren and another damaged vehicle, however no injuries have been reported at this time – and it is unclear who was behind the wheel, or who caused the crash.

The McLaren Senna LM – revealed in a video posted in late June 2020 – is a limited edition model produced to commemorate McLaren F1 GTR's victory at the 1995 Le Mans endurance race.

The rarity of the hypercar remains unknown, as McLaren has never publicly released details of the model, but industry rumours suggest only 20 of the LMs were produced.

Adrian Sutil spent most of his seven year F1 career driving for Force India, finishing with Sauber in 2014. Coincidentally, one of his most well-known crashes as a Formula One driver also occurred in Monaco.

While the circumstances surrounding the crash are not known at this stage – and it is unclear whether Sutil or another person was behind the wheel – the German former F1 racer is no stranger to hypercars.

He has been seen in the past driving a Gemballa Mirage GT (based on the Porsche GT), a Bugatti Veyron and a Chiron, a Pagani Huayra, and a number of special Ferrari models.
