The reason for the fire risk: a foam pad

Recall: McLaren Senna can catch fire

At the end of 2018 the McLaren Senna of the American youtuber “Salomondrin” suddenly caught fire!

According to research the cause is a simple foam pad. The problem: This cushion, which is used as insulation material, is placed below the tank and can soak up water. The result: Over time, the fuel tank can tend to corrode and cause a gasoline leak. Small cause big effect! The solution for this is very simple: The recall calls for authorized dealers to simply remove the foam pad. The tank is then inspected carefully and if corrosion is visible, the tank is also replaced. According to the manufacturer, despite several McLaren that have caught fire in the recent past, there is no officially confirmed case of a fire due to the defect mentioned above. And: The new models Speedtail, Elva and 765LT don’t seem to be affected by the recall!
