“A prototype version of the McLaren Speedtail experienced what we believe at this stage to be an electrical fault, whilst stationary at a fuel station near Guildford in Surrey, UK.
“As a precautionary measure, having seen a small amount of smoke emanating from the vehicle, McLaren employees moved the car away from the fuel pumps and discharged dry powder extinguishers over the rear of the car.”
The 5.2m-long Spiritual successor to the iconic McLaren F1 has a centre driver seat and 2 passenger seats on both sides.
Just 106 will ever be made, with each costing £1.75m or ₦792 million.Optional extras like the 18 carat white Gold or Platinum badges could push the base price to to over £2 million.
Boasting over 1,000bhp and a top speed of 250mph, the already sold out Mclaren’s fastest-ever road car, is due to be delivered to customers next year.
