This is the moment a brand new McLaren P1 worth over $1million is swept down the street in Naples by flood waters as catastrophic Ian continues to pummel Florida.
The monster storm has been ravaging the state for the last 24 hours, leaving a trail of complete destruction in its wake.
Authorities in Florida have warned that fatalities will be 'in the hundreds' as scores of people remain trapped on the roofs of their flooded homes and 2.5million are without power.
One Florida man by the name of Ernie, who was affected by the storm shared footage of his own heartbreaking loss as his newly purchased McLaren P1 was engulfed in flood waters, swept out of his garage and down the mansion-lined street which now resembles a raging river.
The car enthusiast appears to have a fleet of luxury cars - which he shows off regularly on his Instagram account.
But the McLaren P1 has dominated the last 12 posts of Ernie's account with the first starting a week ago when he posted that the car only had 300 miles on it. It was reportedly priced at over $1 million when it first went on sale.
On Wednesday evening, Ernie shared photos of his hurricane-ravaged Florida neighborhood in Naples where streets had turned into rivers. His garage - where the McLaren P1 and Rolls Royce were housed - was completely flooded and both vehicles were submerged in water.
In his most recent post, only the top of the bright yellow McLaren P1 could be seen as it floated down the street. His caption read: 'Car went thru the garage.'
His followers shared in his heartbreak, and wrote messages of support in his comments. Many reminded him that cars are replaceable and sent out thoughts and prayers that everyone was OK.
One user said: 'Stay safe, cars are replaceable.'
Another wrote: 'Hope everyone is alright.'
'I'm so sorry, that's heartbreaking,' a third person added.
Another user wrote: 'I'm so sorry... most important that you and your family are safe. Sending prayers.'
Ernie posted other photos and videos to his Instagram stories that showed the devastation to his neighborhood.
Before the hurricane struck, Ernie had posted a photos of the car with the caption 'My hurricane supply car #p1'
Snarky comments later popped up on his previous posts - one in particular about prepping for the storm.
In a post from hours before the hurricane struck, he shared a photo of the McLaren P1 with the doors open showing off a couple of grocery bags inside. The current caption reads: 'My hurricane supply car,' but has been edited, it showed.
One user commented: 'This didn't age well...'
Another wrote: 'It's the hurricane's car now.'
A third said: 'Moments before disaster.'
Hurricane Ian blasted ashore with catastrophic force on Wednesday afternoon as a Category 4 storm, but has since been downgraded to a tropical storm by the National Hurricane Center in an update early on Thursday.
It is located around 35 miles southwest of Cape Canaveral, with maximum speeds of 65mph, and is moving northeast at around 8 mph.
However it could be nearing hurricane strength again when it approaches the coast of South Carolina on Friday, which is set to be it's second US landfall.
Experts are expecting the damages to cost up to $260billion, though the clean-up efforts are currently unable to get underway as swathes of Florida remain underwater.
