The McLaren Senna has been designed, engineered and developed with single-minded purpose: to be the ultimate McLaren track-concentrated car for the road. Legalised for road use, but not sanitised to suit it, the new Ultimate is developed to be the purest connection between driver and car.
The Senna features an Ultra-lightweight construction, with carbon fibre chassis and body panels. With an Electro-hydraulic steering and power channeled to the rear wheels via a a dual-clutch, seven-speed gearbox. the Senna features a race-derived suspension.
The carbon fibre Monocage III chassis that forms the core of the McLaren Senna is a further development of the structure that underpins the McLaren 720S and the strongest monocoque ever built by McLaren for a road-legal vehicle.
Every body panel is made from carbon fibre, in line with a focus on the weight of every individual component that has resulted in the McLaren Senna being the lightest road-legal McLaren since the iconic F1 road car, at just 1,198kg*.
With maximum power of 800PS (789bhp), the McLaren Senna enjoys a power-to-weight ratio of 668PS per tonne. The ambition for the McLaren Senna is for it to be the best road-legal track car, setting a new benchmark for circuit excellence with track prowess absolutely taking precedence.
Interestingly McLaren haven't revealed full performance stats, thi will be reserved for a later date in Q1 2018.
Priced at £750,000 including taxes, the McLaren Senna is limited to 500 units, all hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England from Q3 2018
