A completely charred 2021 McLaren GT has been listed for sale on US-based used car marketplace Copart. The full-burnt vehicle, located in Texas, is no longer recognizable and its remains look like a pile of scrap. Listed for an estimated retail value of $212,000 ( 1.5 crore approx), one would wonder if someone will be willing to pay real money for this.

The primary damage that occurred on what once used to be a McLaren GT is 'burn' while the secondary damage mentioned on the website is 'all over'. Since the McLaren GT is largely made from carbon fiber, its remains look like chunks of melted and destroyed carbon.
