The design language of the McLaren Senna is extremely aggressive and unique. Even the pure sight of a McLaren Senna puts sports car lovers in ecstasy. At the latest when the gullwing doors open, you only want one more thing: Listen to the sound of the roaring 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and give the 800-PS supercar the spurs. But before you dream of owning a McLaren Senna, we have to tell you that nothing will become of it. The price tag of the "Senna" in the standard edition comes at almost one million euros, but all of the limited 500 cars has been sold out bevor its official presentation at the 88. Geneva Motor Show. Nevertheless, we should take a closer look at the latest superstar from McLaren. Because the “Senna” is the most extreme road car McLaren has ever built.
The McLaren Senna is a car like no other: the personification of McLaren’s motorsport DNA, legalized for road use but designed and developed from the outset to excel on a circuit.
On the boulevard of vanities, the high-flyer is an eye-catcher, because no other sports car has such elaborate aerodynamics and therefore such a large spoiler - not to mention the diagonally upwardly opening doors with double windows and the spectacularly staged exhaust. But the Senna does not just deliver a show: He is a genuine racing car, which was forced into the corset of street legal clearance.
Inspired by one of McLaren’s greatest drivers, every element of the McLaren Senna has an uncompromising performance ethos and raw focus that delivers the purest connection between driver and car.
Already reading the technical values the “Senna” enthuses. Who had the pleasure to drive a McLaren Senna itself, will probably never forget this eexperience. 2.8 seconds 0-100km/h, in 6.8 seconds reaches the speed of the bolide 200 km/ hand after 18.8 seconds, the 300km/h mark falls. The top speed is 340km/h.
The driver is ‘hardwired’ into the experience at all times. The ultimate connection to the McLaren Senna is made through the steering wheel, the seat and the pedals, because to truly enjoy the sensation of driving at ferocious speed you need a machine that actively communicates its every intent, putting you in complete control. The McLaren Senna does it.
