When it comes to car ownership, rapper Post Malone is in the one percent. His personal collection has included a $3 million custom Bugatti Chiron, multiple Rolls-Royces (one of which was totaled when he was T-boned by a Kia) and an ultra-rare McLaren. But it looks like he’s making room in his stable, as the latter hypercar is up for sale.
The one-of-three McLaren Senna XP “Master of Monaco” edition owned by the rapper, whose real name is Austin Post, is currently listed on DuPont Registry for an undisclosed sum, though Car and Driver notes that it originally sold for $1.5 million and will likely go for more.
What makes this particular car special — even compared with the rest of McLaren’s exclusive, bank-account-draining lineup — is that it’s one of three experimental prototypes that the McLaren Beverly Hills dealer commissioned the marque’s special operations division to commemorate Ayrton Senna’s F1 victories. As such, Post’s car is the “Master of Monaco” edition, celebrating Senna’s six wins at the Monaco Grand Prix with the principality’s flag hand painted on the rear wing, red and white trim on the carbon-fiber body and other details.
For over $1.5 million, how much power are we talking? “A twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that produces 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque powers the Senna, and during Car and Driver testing, it launched the Senna to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds on its way to a 10.0-second quarter-mile at 147 mph,” writes the outlet. That should be enough for anyone.
But this is a used car previously owned by a 25-year-old rapper, so what is the new buyer getting themselves into? Are they going to shell out only to find the hypercar has been driven into the ground? Not necessarily. According to DuPont, there are only 147 miles on this beaut. If we’re measuring in hypercar miles, instead of your average used jalopy, that comes out to a little more, but it’s still extremely low.
Just watch out for those Kias.
