Driver, 27, Crashes His Rare $1.15M McLaren Just One DAY After Picking It Up

It was one of only 375 models that were made.

But the owner of this 2015 McLaren P1 - a seven-speed that goes from 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds - has all-but wrecked his new $1.15 million supercar and is lucky to be alive after a nasty crash in Dallas on Wednesday morning - less than 24 hours after buying the twin-turbo V8.

The single-car crash occurred about 7.41am and troopers were called to the scene.

The 27-year-old appears to have lost control of the vehicle after hitting a wet spot and smashed into the guardrail, investigators told WFAA-TV.

Ouch: This 2015 McLaren P1 - described as 'possibly the most exciting road car ever built' - was picked up from the dealership less than 24 hours before the crash on Wednesday
