The new McLaren Senna will be displayed at the 88th Geneva Motor Show dressed in Visual Carbon Fibre. The McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is one of five themes developed by MSO for a car that has been the centre of attention since the first images were released in December. McLaren Automotive will hold a press conference at the Geneva International Motor Show at 10:45 CET on March 6, introducing the McLaren Senna and detailing corporate developments as well as a mysterious, surprise announcement.
The visitors of the 88th Geneva International Motor Show will witness is the most obvious individual feature of the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO. The full body set includes 67 parts and takes almost 1,000 hours to produce. Solar Yellow detailing on the sill exteriors, rear wing and front active aero blades matches Laurel Green brake calipers, a homage to the helmet colors of the legendary Brazilian Formula 1 racing driver.
Likewise, the interior features the door gas strut in Laurel Green and the contrast stitching on the Carbon Black Alcantara trim on seats, door inners and facia. The steering wheel also has a leather centre band in a similar yellow hue. Both seats are adorned with a Senna ‘S’ on the headrest and the same detail is repeated in satin finish Visual Carbon Fibre on the end plates of the rear wing.
The 88th Geneva International Motor Show will serve as a stage to showcase a new McLaren Senna wheel option. The standard wheel is available in three finishes, but the new MSO 7-Spoke, Hybrid Carbon Fibre Wheel is the only alternative design available from McLaren for the car. The centre-lock wheel is a forged aluminium/carbon fibre rim component that at 7.5kg (front wheel) without a tyre fitted, is up to 10 per cent lighter than the standard-fit wheel.
The MSO 7-Spoke Hybrid Carbon Fibre Wheel is a retailer-fit only option that will customers will be able to order soon in either Diamond Cut or Stealth finish. The Memphis Red and Vega Blue satin finish centre lock wheel nuts fitted to respectively the left- and right-hand sides of the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme car are available now to MSO Bespoke order.
All 500 examples of the McLaren Senna are already assigned. Each vehicle is priced at £750,000 and will be hand-assembled by specialists at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England, in a process taking close to 300 hours. Cars commissioned from McLaren Special Operations will take considerably longer to build and carry a financial premium; the bespoke personalisation carried out on the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO, for example, adds a little under £300,000 to the price.
