A sports car valued at over $300,000, has gone up in flames due to a suspected electrical fault in a garage in Sydney’s Hills District.

Emergency crews were called to a home at Rochester Grove, Castle Hill just after 8am today after reports a 2020 P14 McLaren 720S was alight in the garage.
Fire crews were able to extinguish the blaze with minimal damage to the garage but the car was completely destroyed.

Police have confirmed they don’t believe the car fire is suspicious and investigators are looking at an electrical fault as one line of enquiry.

A report has been prepared for the Coroner‘s office which handles fire and explosions as well as sudden or unexplained deaths.

McLaren issued a global recall last year for cars in its 570GT, GT, 720S and Senna range which were built between 2016 and 2020 after two fires were reported.

This recall included 186 McLarens sold in Australia.
