In the Portuguese city of Braga, the McLaren Senna hypercar worth a million euros caught fire. According to local media, the fire occurred in the engine compartment, but the causes of the incident are still unknown. Over the past year, this is the third such case with the Senna model.

Apparently, a car owned by a Portuguese businessman caught fire while driving. This is evidenced by images from the scene: Senna stands on the road, blocking one of the lanes. Arriving at the scene, firefighters extinguished the fire, but did not find the reason why the fire occurred.

In July last year, another McLaren Senna caught fire during a demonstration race during a Formula 1 racing weekend on the Austrian Red Bull Ring. Viewers filmed a smoke-covered supercar returning to the pits, and flames burst out from under the stern. And six months before, YouTube blogger Salomondrin videotaped McLaren Senna burning, bought just 11 days before. Then the hypercar also caught fire during movement and the fire arose precisely in the engine compartment.

In the fall of 2019, McLaren announced the recall of 129 Senna units sold in the North American market. Then, as a reason called “problems with the wiring.” It was reported that a detected defect can lead to a decrease in engine power, its stopping, as well as the ingress of unburned fuel into the catalytic converter.

McLaren Senna, named after the three-time Formula 1 champion Ayrton Senna, was released in a limited edition of 500 copies. It is powered by a twin-turbo “eight” with a capacity of 800 horsepower, which provides acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the car is 340 kilometers per hour.
