Bad news first, the McLaren Senna GTR is sold out—not that there are many who could afford the £1.1 million price tag. But even if there aren’t any more of the only 75 cars produced left for purchase, that doesn’t mean you can’t admire the incredible design and performance.
“The McLaren Senna GTR is a perfect example of our determination to bring our customers the ultimate expression of track driving performance and excitement,” explained Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer for McLaren. “Ultimate” might be a bit of an understatement. The Senna GTR was already McLaren’s fastest, lightest, most powerful road-legal car. McLaren freed it of any road or track inhibitions. “Free from the constraints of road car legislation and motorsport competition rules, we have pushed the limits of what is technically possible to advance circuit driving capability to another level entirely,” stated Flewitt.
What that means is that has been equipped with “the most extreme version yet” of McLaren’s 4.0L twin turbocharged V8 engine, capable of 814 braking horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The Senna also has the lightest dry weight—a meager 1,188kg. That translates into roughly 684 horsepower per ton. With changes to the car’s weight and an upgraded chassis, the Senna boasts 2,205lbs of downforce at its peak. Each of the 75 new owners will also have the opportunity to completely personalize their vehicle with the help of the McLaren Special Operations Options. First deliveries will be starting in September, 2019.
