A $2 million dollar (1 of 100 made) silver McLaren F1 was ruined after it caught fire from the engine. The owner ‘Irv Kessler, 53 of Minnesota declined to discuss the incident.

“It hadn’t been driven in six months,” said John Lantz, Rincon Valley assistant fire chief. “They took it out yesterday and today and started having some kind of problem with it,” Lantz said he was told by Kessler.

As Kessler drove on Airport Boulevard, someone noticed smoke coming from the back and alerted him. The engine then caught fire and flames burned the back of the car, Lantz said.

Rincon Valley firefighters found the car still burning and quickly doused it before it spread to the passenger compartment.

At least it looks like it’s only the rear end of the car that needs replacing, which probably accounts for $1.5 of the $2 million price tag 😉
