An Australian millionaire based in Melbourne has lifted a highly-limited McLaren Senna GTR into his high-rise penthouse where it will remain as a decoration piece.
To undertake such a task, the $NZ3 million plus track-only hypercar had to be craned 57 floors into the sky and then pushed into the side of the building which was partly deconstructed to do so.
The man behind the stunt is Adrian Portelli, who previously made headlines when he bought the $AU39 million ($NZ41.6 million) Sapphire by the Gardens apartment as it became the most expensive property in Australia.
When the 34-year old initially purchased the home, he was said to have agreed on getting the car up there as part of the purchase price.
Portelli made his fortunes by founding luxury car and housing promotions and rewards platform LMCT+, hence the conveniently placed stickers on the front and sides of the McLaren, while he also dabbles in property investment.
We previously alluded to the fact that the Senna GTR can’t be registered for the road as it’s a track-only car, which is the reasoning behind as to why the millionaire decided to make it the “centrepiece” of his new home.
“It was sitting in a factory and I can’t drive it on the road. I decided to have it craned up there instead,” he told 9 News Australia. “It’s an art piece.”
It isn’t like the car sat around all its life though, as the Australian took it on several track days and was even seen doing donuts in an industrial building on his social media. However, we don’t think he’ll be doing that in the middle of his penthouse.
Just 75 Senna GTRs were ever made, with each featuring a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 producing 627kW.
It’ll be about another year or so before construction and fit out of the McLaren-centred apartment is completed.
