Without a doubt, McLaren did an awesome job designing a car that resembles so closely the driver who inspired its name.
The Senna sports a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine making 789 horsepower capable to go from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Senna’s extreme agility guaranteed its spot on our list as one of the fastest production cars on the planet.
It is the most track-focused road car we have ever built, and it will set the fastest lap times of any McLaren to date. That is what has driven us to build a track car that is unashamedly without compromise. One that is legalised for road use, but not sanitised to suit it. Nothing else matters but to deliver the most intense driving experience around a circuit.
Inspired by one of McLaren’s greatest racing drivers, the McLaren Senna is utterly dedicated to allowing the driver to be the best they can possibly be.
To experience it all working in unison is truly incredible. The resulting 800kg of downforce in Race mode at significantly less than maximum speed (155mph or 250km/h) is phenomenal, and the McLaren Senna creates, maintains and controls its aerodynamic performance to ensure the driver has the confidence to explore the limits such downforce unlocks.
800PS and 800Nm from a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the most powerful internal combustion engine McLaren has ever built. 800kg of downforce made possible by pioneering active aerodynamics. The lightest McLaren since the iconic F1 with dry weight of under 1200kg. A power-to-weight ratio of 668PS-per-tonne (659bhp) that ensures it will set the fastest lap times of any McLaren road car to date. 0-124mph (0-200km/h) in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 208mph (335km/h). Next-generation carbon ceramic brakes that utilise racing technology. Discover the savage performance of the McLaren Senna.
We think of the McLaren Senna as a race car – we have designed and built it to perform on the track first and foremost. The active aerodynamics are pioneering, and the unprecedented visibility achieved through the unique glazed doors gives the driver total confidence. Exhaustive, fearless engineering has led us to revaluate and reassess every component, no matter how small or insignificant, to maximise performance. We have used carbon fibre for the monocoque, the body and everywhere we need lightness, rigidity and strength – it is the reason the McLaren Senna is the lightest road vehicle McLaren Automotive has ever built.
