The first customer McLaren Senna 001 was officially presented to its owner, London-based businessman, David Kyte. The car, which carries chassis number 001, was taken on a 1,400km ‘road trip’, accompanied by five other McLaren cars.
Following the presentation by McLaren CEO, Mike Flewitt and other McLaren Automotive and McLaren Special Operations senior executives, which took place at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK, McLaren Senna 001 left for the south of France with three other McLaren Sennas, a McLaren 720S and a McLaren 600LT. Driven by racing driver and nephew of Ayrton Senna, Bruno Senna; McLaren Automotive Chief Operating Officer, Dr Jens Ludmann and McLaren Ultimate Series Vehicle Line Director, Andy Palmer, the supercars have now arrived at the Circuit Paul Ricard near Marseille, where Mr Kyte will join a Pure McLaren driving experience taking place this weekend.
Finished in MSO Anniversary White with striking livery painted in MSO Aurora Blue and the Senna brand displayed on the wing endplate, the bespoke McLaren Senna 001 also comes with roof ‘snorkel’, T-Bar and fuel filler cover in MSO Satin Visual Carbon Fibre; brake calipers painted in MSO Bespoke Burton Blue; and MSO Bespoke Coloured Centre Lock wheel nuts in Volcano Red. The paintwork alone took more than 600 hours to complete, two paint specialists devoting two weeks to ‘masking-up’ the car before the livery was applied.
‘Senna 001’ also features individual references to the legendary Ayrton Senna: his signature is on the door shut, the years that he was Formula One World Champion are engraved on the throttle pedal and the layout of the Interlagos circuit in São Paulo, Brazil – with the McLaren badge marking the start/finish line – is clearly visible on the front of the car.
The interior is clad in black Alcantara complemented by diamond-stitching on the seats and a Senna ‘S’ logo embroidered on each headrest, all in Harissa Red. Black carpet with Harissa Red Alcantara piping and decorative stitch, Volcano Red door struts and red-tinted carbon fibre control surrounds complete the personalisation. The vehicle keys are also in red-tinted carbon.
