The Scott Thomas Collection boasts three race-inspired vehicles from British car manufacture McLaren. Leading the lineup is a 2019 McLaren Senna, which is one of only 500 manufactured and 120 units imported to the United States. It was designed as a track-focused, street-legal hypercar and is powered by a mid-mounted V8 engine that delivers 789 horsepower.
