McLaren Senna 'Merlin' edition is simply stunning
And very, very expensive
This outstanding McLaren Senna 'Merlin' is currently listed for sale on Bring A Trailer and I'm fairly certain it will sell for mega millions. It currently sits at $900,000 with 8 days to go and I wouldn't be surprised if it sold for four or five times the amount.
It is a one-off 'Merlin' edition created by (and for) Darren 'Merlin' Townsend, head of bespoke paint at McLaren Special Operations. The paint is spectacular, with rainbow-coloured sparkles and gold pinstriping and gold accents.
It sits on lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels at the front and 20-inch alloy wheels at the rear, in gloss black, with gold-finished six- and four-piston front and rear brake calipers and Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres.
The cabin is upholstered in black Alcantara, including the carbon fibre bucket seats, with gold Merlin embroidery and gold inserts. The throttle pedal, this is the cherry on top of the cake, features etchings of moons and stars.
The engine is untouched, which means the Senna Merlin is powered by the factory 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, putting 789 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The car is brand new, coming in with only 600 miles on the clock, and in perfect condition.
