  • McLaren Senna Previewed Ahead Of Imminent Debut

Since McLaren chose to use the name of someone who is famous for his prowess on the track, the auto manufacturer had to go and get permission from the racer's family.

The McLaren Senna uses a 789bhp twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and has a body made entirely from carbon-fibre to keep it both stiff and light. McLaren says this tips the scales at just 1,198 kg (2,640 lbs) dry which makes it around 85 kg (187 lbs) lighter than the current 720S.

Apart from a bit of a silly name and extreme form-follows-function aesthetics that we'd defy anyone to call pretty, the Senna - the second model in McLaren's top-tier Ultimate Series, reserved for its most potent of cars - is a serious bit of kit.

"The McLaren Senna is a vehicle like no other: the personification of McLaren's motorsport DNA, legalised for road use but designed and developed from the outset to excel on a circuit", Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive said.

McLaren previously teased an "Ultimate Series" model that was going to replace the P1, but this is not that vehicle, although it's still part of the same series.

And I do not have a crystal ball, so I do not know what is going to happen. "But if he's made the effort to come out and say he wants to go".


Every element of this new Ultimate Series McLaren has an uncompromised performance focus, honed to ensure the purest possible connection between driver and machine and deliver the ultimate track driving experience in the way that only a McLaren can. "This is the first project that really connects with Ayrton's racing spirit and performance".

The production run of the Senna will be limited to just 500 cars, with a price tag of £750,000 (Dh3.7 million).

It's five years since the McLaren P1 arrived as the McLaren Ultimate Series auto, but now it has a sibling - the McLaren Senna.

McLaren is known for being one of the best auto manufacturers in the world and this is entirely true.
