This is the moment a brand new McLaren P1 worth over $1 million is swept through the streets of Naples by flood waters as the catastrophic Ian continues to hit Florida.

The monstrous storm has been devastating the state for the past 24 hours, leaving a trail of total destruction in its wake.

Florida authorities have warned that deaths will be “hundreds” as dozens remain trapped on the roofs of their flooded homes and 2.5 million are without power.

A Florida man named Ernie, who was affected by the storm, shared footage of his own harrowing loss as his newly purchased McLaren P1 was submerged in floodwaters, swept out of his garage and down the mansion-lined street that now it resembles a raging river.

Hurricane Ian made landfall with catastrophic force Wednesday afternoon as a Category 4 storm, but has since been downgraded to a tropical storm by the National Hurricane Center in an update early Thursday.

It is located about 35 miles southwest of Cape Canaveral, with top speeds of 65 mph, moving northeast at about 8 mph.

However, it could approach hurricane strength again when it approaches the coast of South Carolina on Friday, which will be its second landfall in the United States.

Experts expect the damage to cost up to $260 billion, though cleanup efforts currently cannot begin as parts of Florida remain underwater.
