McLaren Senna images released ahead of March debutBack

The world has waited in hot anticipation for the release of one of McLaren’s most iconic supercars, the McLaren Senna. It will finally make its public debut at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show on March 6th 2018.

“You commit yourself to such a level where there is no compromise. You give everything you have; everything, absolutely everything.”

Ayrton Senna

Ahead of its debut, McLaren has released eagerly awaited technical information and a host of images of the car ahead of its debut.

The McLaren Senna is built in memory of Ayrton Senna da Silver, one of the world’s greatest Formula One drivers who won three Formula One championships for McLaren in 1988, 1990 and 1991 but tragically lost his life n May 1994.

Senna was killed instantly when his car crashed into a concrete barrier while he was leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Italy. As a result of his death, greater safety measures for the sport were put in place.

In memory of Senna’s legendary ability as a world- renowned racing car driver, the McLaren Senna has been designed, engineered and developed to be the ultimate road-legal McLaren track car.

With 800PS (789bhp) and 800Nm (590b ft) from its 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 – McLaren’ s most powerful-ever internal combustion engine in a road car – and the ability to generate a staggering 800kg of downforce, the 1,198kg McLaren Senna is able to deliver the purest possible connection between driver and car.

Looking at its performance, the McLaren Senna can achieve a breathtaking 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, 124 mph is achieved in just 6.8 seconds and a standing quarter-mile (402m) in only 9.9 seconds. The true depth of the performance credentials of the new Ultimate Series McLaren will soon to be revealed.

Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive, comments;”The McLaren Senna is a car 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. 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.”

Bruno Senna, racing driver, nephew of Ayrton Senna and McLaren ambassador, added; “The McLaren Senna honours my uncle because it is so utterly focused upon the driver, and their absolute connection with the vehicle. This engagement, these sensory cues that the driver responds to and relies upon, the whole immersive experience, has been at the heart of the development from the very start.”

The McLaren Senna combines low vehicle weight, extreme power, aerodynamic excellence and a revolutionary, active suspension system to deliver the most responsive and engaging road car experience to date from McLaren.

The McLaren Senna will be priced at £750,000 including taxes (UK), and only 500 units will be built, each hand-assembled in a 300-hour process at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England.

All the models have already been assigned to buyers, with the one remaining build allocation auctioned in December 2017 at a private event for McLaren customers. The winning bid was £2 million, with the proceeds going to the Ayrton Senna Institute, a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing education for nearly two million unprivileged children and youngsters in Brazil.
