Shmee150 – This is What Happened to My McLaren Senna!

I hoped this day would never come but sadly it has and it’s important to be open and honest with you. On the M25 motorway outside of London unfortunately there was a incident between my McLaren Senna and a truck and here’s what happened.

The most important thing is that nobody was hurt in the accident, it happened at approximately 20-25mph in a speed limit controlled 40mph zone of the motorway. (The M25 is mostly a ‘Smart Motorway’ where the limits automatically lower when it detects congestion). I was in lane 2 of the stop and go traffic (one of the 2 exit lanes) and a truck that was in lane 3 (of the 3 continuing M25 lanes) moved from my right into my lane where the Senna was hidden in his blind spot and the first thing I knew was the crunch as the contact was made to the right hand side of the car from the door to the back.

The result has been some mostly cosmetic damage to a number of body panels including the door, rear quarter panel, and the wing. Along with those there are parts like the mirror cap, door window glass and the wheel but fortunately it seems like nothing mechanical or to do with how it drives so these are things that can easily be repaired.

At this stage I ask you to please be patient with me for updates, this will no doubt be quite a lengthy process with the silver-lining that next week I head to the USA and will be there for 2 months by which time I hope things are back up and running. The insurance company are being fantastic and looking after everything I could ask for at this stage and I can only leave it in their hands going forwards as the car is already now back with McLaren.
