AMcLaren supercar worth around £1million has been destroyed after bursting into flames.
The P1 vehicle, one of only 375 made, erupted into a fireball in a residential street in Berkshire.
It is thought the fire might have been caused by a fuel leak from the hypercar, which has an electric hybrid engine.
Video taken by a passerby on Saturday showed what appeared to be a trail of liquid from the blue McLaren.
The owner managed to escape the blaze at a junction in Colnbrook, near Heathrow Airport, in Berkshire.
The P1 hypercar uses Formula One technology and can reach a top speed of 240mph.
A McLaren spokesman said the company was now examining the car, telling The Sun: “We believe it’s an isolated incident.”
Lee McClurg, 34, was driving himself and his partner, Alex Bedford, 27, to the Goodwood Festival of Speed when the orange McLaren 570S, costing £168,000, hit a house and telegraph pole barely three miles from their home near Trowbridge.
Images released by the fire service showed the blackened remains of the sports car buried beneath a collapsed brick wall.
Both Mr McClurg and Mr Bedford walked away from the crash with little more than cuts and bruises, but said they feared they were going to “burn alive” inside the car they had owned for just five weeks.
