The McLaren Senna is a limited-production mid-engine hypercar manufactured by McLaren Automotive. The car is the newest addition in the McLaren Ultimate Series, joining the F1 and the P1. The car is named after the Brazilian Formula One race car driver Ayrton Senna, honouring and giving tribute to his success with the McLaren Formula One Team between 1988 and 1993 Formula 1 seasons with production limited to 500 units.
Carbon fibre aerodynamic pieces constitute the car, with a large adjustable double-element rear wing (that is operated electronically and has various settings in order to provide optimum performance while also acting as an airbrake), double-element diffuser, Formula One-inspired roof scoop, front and side air intakes, rear air louvres, and large front fenders. Inside the panel beside the intakes is a small set of mini-canards. Areas of low pressure are accompanied using high-performance radiators that ensure improved engine cooling The car uses dihedral doors, like the previous offerings in the Ultimate Series, and also has optional windows applied on the lower area of its doors.
The Senna is powered by a modified version of the 720S’ 4.0 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It utilises a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that delivers all 789 bhp to the rear wheels.
