Showing off for the camera while behind the wheel of a supercar is never a good idea. The driver of this 789-horsepower McLaren Senna found out the hard way after losing control on a public street in California, smashing into a building and causing serious damage.

Video published across social media on early Monday morning shows the Senna rolling down Ventura Boulevard in the Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles, California, before performing a donut for a crowd standing in the middle of the street. The Senna proceeds to peel off down the road before losing control and swerving into the curb in front of a Lexus dealership.

The video, originally published to Reddit (which you can see here) and reposted to X, cuts to the aftermath of the crash, and it's not pretty. The front end is smashed into the exterior of the dealership, leaning up slightly against a Toyota Camry that was parked outside. The entire front clip is pushed in, the passenger-side door is ajar, and the front right wheel is pushed backward and outward.

According to Reddit user slattdemon99, the video's publisher, Edmond "Mondi" Barseghian was at the wheel. Barseghian, a YouTuber, went viral in early 2023 for totaling his Hummer EV after driving it for just nine miles. He has since confirmed the incident.  

In a video published to Barseghian's channel four days ago, he can be seen taking delivery of what looks to be the same Senna, driving it quickly on public roads and describing it as "legit scary fast." Photos of the car also appeared on his Instagram story as recently as Sunday afternoon. 

Considering this Senna's value, it's unlikely to be totaled by the insurance company. But the car certainly won't be cheap to fix, especially if there's damage to the carbon fiber monocoque. We hope whoever drives this McLaren next treats it better than the last person.

Update: Barseghian has sinced confirmed that he was behind the wheel of his new Senna when the accident happened. He has issued an apology (sort of) on his Instagram account with more details of the incident, which you can read here.

Barseghian originally reached out to the person who published the video and asked them to remove it because, "I don't want my insurance to see it bro." But the video is still live on multiple websites.

Of course, the Internet has followed up in the accident and posted photos of the Woodland Hills Lexus dealership where Mondi crashed. You can see the image of the aftermath below.
