Welcome to the forum, shame about the circumstances.

I had a similar but less dramatic thing happen with mine. A clip on the long pipe from the pump to the rear suspension wore through the pipe. I was forty miles from home and saw there was a leak.
Almost home the steering became almost solid and the suspension was almost at the bottom.

Had to have the car recovered to the garage. New pipe and another suspect one ordered from France. Three lots of LDS - one to lift it enough to drag onto the beavertail.

£300 all told, mainly for the recovery truck. The pipes were £90 ish.

Post your VIN so your exact build can be determined but it will need careful examination to see which pipe has burst and where - presuming it is a burst pipe of course. May be the hydraulic reservoir.
