The new McLaren Senna

The new McLaren Senna

As in Ayrton Senna, for many the greatest Grand Prix driver of them all, who won all three of his world titles at the wheel of McLaren F1 cars only leaving when the team failed to secure an engine that would make it competitive against the dominant Williams team.

McLaren set up the Senna for chassis control and balance at triple-ticket speeds with a competition-derived RaceActive Chassis Control II suspension, electro-hydraulic steering, carbon ceramic brakes, and racetrack tires approved for street use.

The engine is mid-mounted, pushing its power to the rear wheels, and the Senna has new RaceActive Chassis Control II (RCC II) hydraulic suspension. That uses double-wishbones with hydraulically interconnected dampers, along with a hydraulic replacement for conventional mechanical anti-roll bars. It also borrows – and builds on – the variable stiffness and ride height technology which McLaren last showed in the P1.

Probably not, but even if you did have the £750,000 it costs in the UK with taxes at your disposal, and which comes to around $1 million at today’s rates, all 500 hand-built cars have been spoken for. The last example was sold in an auction for £2 million or $2.7 million with the proceeds to benefit the Senna Foundation.
