In July 2019, he got involved in a highway accident while going to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, an annual festival held in Goodwood House, with his McLaren Senna. His car was damaged on the driver’s side door by a truck. The repairs of his McLaren Senna took about six months.
In September 2020, he smashed 200mph on the German Autobahn with his famous McLaren Senna.
In November 2020, Burton bought his first electric vehicle – a Porsche Taycan Turbo S. The Taycan is the first EV to feature a multispeed transmission. It also features a function, which boosts power from 616 horsepower to 750 hp.
