Who can afford a P1 but can't afford to move it somewhere safe? My second cousin used to move his 350z to higher ground any time a storm would hit the Keys.

Don't laugh. That is an asset that could have been seized by the Feds to pay back the looting of the PPP loan system.

Sad to see tax dollars float away like that.

groppet: Someone wants the insurance?


That would be an incredibly stupid way to get money out of it considering it is extremely valuable and has only gone up in price.

OTOH, Florida.

That's the problem, McLarens aren't made for diving.


Owner should have purchased a Lotus.

Of course!  Bonus:  they wouldn't be able to tell if it wasn't running because of the water or because it's a Lotus!

Because a lot of rich people are stupid enough to tell themselves "They always say it's gonna be bad, but they're always wrong."  This attitude of "I'm smarter than the experts" is not affected by net worth.

DrWhy: How much does a McLaren with a salvage title run these days?

/asking for a friend


I'd buy it for 20 bucks to sit in it and make vroom noises. Also to leave in my drive way when I bring chicks home.  "Oh that?  Yeah that's my McClaren. No big deal. Drive it? Oh, I need a new battery for it. Special order from England. Might take a while."

Someone who's struggling to keep up appearances. The clutter in the garage and the dirty floor tells me they don't have the money to hire a full-time personal assistant to take care of this kind of stuff for them.

If only the owner would have had some sort of storm warning forecast a day or two ahead of time. (Eye roll)
