McLaren Senna Love it Or Hate it
With the press launch of McLarens New Senna it has stirred up a lot of controversy recently
If your looking to purchase one sadly every car has been sold and the last one went for auction for 2 Million pounds. They do cost £750K but why... well... with more downforce than a P1 GTR and 789BHP this car has to offer more than just looks... lets check the stats.
'McLaren' Ultra-lightweight construction, with a carbon fibre chassis and carbon fibre body panels, ensure this is the lightest vehicle we have built since the iconic McLaren F1. The 4.0-litre twin- turbocharged V8 is our most powerful road car engine to date, producing 800PS (789bhp) and 800Nm ( 590lb ft). This combination creates a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 688PS-per-tonne.
Even so millionaires and billionaires usually like to prance around and show off the beauty, elegance and sheer class of these hyper machines but the Senna doesn't fall into this category with most. It however is purely a track based car and until tested we will be in the dark until track results are shown.
'Mclaren' The McLaren Senna is the personification of McLaren’s DNA at its most extreme, creating the purest connection between car and driver. It is the most track-focused road car we have ever built, and it will set the fastest lap times of any McLaren to date. That is what has driven us to build a track car that is unashamedly without compromise. One that is legalised for road use, but not sanitised to suit it. Nothing else matters but to deliver the most intense driving experience around a circuit. Inspired by one of McLaren’s greatest racing drivers, the McLaren Senna is utterly dedicated to allowing the driver to be the best they can possibly be.
The McLaren Senna is a car like no other. It is a new member of the McLaren Ultimate Series, a product family introduced with the McLaren P1™ and reserved for the rarest and most extreme McLaren cars. Unsurprisingly, there are strong echoes in the new McLaren Senna of the incredibly focused philosophy behind the McLaren P1™. Yet where the McLaren P1™ was designed to be the best driver’s car on road and track, the McLaren Senna is designed and developed with track prowess absolutely taking precedence.
The McLaren Senna will be hand-assembled in England at the McLaren Production Centre. Production will be limited to 500 vehicles, and each McLaren Senna has already been assigned to a customer.
