McLaren pays tribute to F1 driver Ayrton Senna with their most extreme road car ever. Based on the 720S coupe, the McLaren Senna features a version of McLaren’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 that makes 588kW of power and 800Nm of torque – a 58kW and 30Nm increase.

Mclaren said the car is “the purest connection between driver and car of any road-legal McLaren”. With carbon fibre framework and aerodynamics that maximise downforce on the road and track, as well as glass elements in the roof and doors.

Bruno Senna, Ayrton’s nephew said “This is the first project that really connects with Ayrton’s racing spirit and performance”
“The McLaren Senna honours my uncle because it is so utterly dedicated to delivering a circuit experience that allows a driver to be the best they can possibly be.”
“There is an absolute, seamless connection between car and driver and this pure engagement, these sensory cues that a driver responds to and relies upon, ensure an experience so focused and immersive that you are left in awe of the depths of excellence the McLaren Senna possesses.”
With only 500 avaliable the McLaren Senna is priced from £750,000 in the UK.
