One remaining build allocation for a new McLaren Senna was auctioned off, raising $2.67 million for underprivileged children in Brazil, during a private event for McLaren customers. With only 500 units built, the last one was discretely preserved to be auctioned at an annual event for passionate devotees of the McLaren brand and its cars.
The hypercar is the most extreme road vehicle to date from McLaren Automotive. Designed, engineered and developed with the single-minded purpose of being the ultimate McLaren track car legalised for the road, the new vehicle is the purest expression yet of the McLaren ‘form follows function’ design philosophy. The McLaren Senna honors the global legacy of Ayrton Senna, a Brazilian racing driver who won three Formula One world championships for McLaren. He was renowned for his exceptional powers of concentration and single-minded focus on being the best on the track.
With a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 800PS (789bhp) and torque of 800Nm (590 lb ft) – the most powerful road car internal combustion engine ever created by McLaren – and a lightest dry weight of only 1,198kg, the McLaren Senna is ferociously quick. More importantly, the aerodynamic qualities and RCC II RaceActive Chassis Control hydraulic suspension of the car ensure that it has incredible circuit ability: the ambition for the McLaren Senna is for it to be the best road-legal track car, setting a new benchmark for track prowess.
