The McLaren Senna is a limited-production mid-engined supercar manufactured by McLaren Automotive Company. The car model is the third addition in the McLaren Ultimate Series. It is the most track-focused road car that has ever built, and it will set the fastest lap times of any McLaren to date.
Named after storied Brazilian Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, this hypercar eats up the pavement with blistering speed and focused intensity.
What’s new in 2020 Senna:
For 2020, McLaren adds the GTR to the Senna lineup. The Senna GTR is built solely for track use, and it’s even more performance-oriented than the base model.
Engine and Performance:
The base model is motivated by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that generates 789 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. With the GTR, this engine is tuned to deliver an additional 25 horsepower.
There’s one more thing you need to know about the Senna: It’s very, very loud. The car’s tire noise, wind rush, and engine roar combine to make time spent within its cabin a punishing experience for the eardrums. The Senna is directed by aerodynamics – up to 800kg of air pressing the mid-engined two-seater into the tarmac at 155mph.
Mileage for the 2020 McLaren Senna is estimated at 14/18 mpg city/highway.
Interior and Cargo space:
The McLaren Senna has room for two: a very lucky passenger and an even luckier driver. It comes with dihedral doors that hinge forward and upward, exposing a portion of the roof. The car’s bucket seats give buyers a choice of three padding thicknesses. A high shelf sits behind the driver and passenger. It’s the only space that offers in-cabin storage, and it can accommodate two helmets and two racing suits. Switchgear such as the electronic door releases, window switches, and keyless ignition are located on the headliner.
Forget about your grocery bags or carry-on luggage for that weekend getaway. The Senna doesn’t have a trunk, so there is zero cargo space.
The Senna’s infotainment system features a floating screen that adds modern flair to the cabin. An optional seven-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system is offered as well as navigation. McLaren Track Telemetry is optional. This feature can be used at the track to map out a session and analyze each lap.
McLaren Senna costs $1 million.
