Inspired by the mythical Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna, the McLaren Senna was designed to be the ultimate road-legal track car.

England - True to the legendary abilities of the racing driver whose name it bears, the McLaren Senna has been engineered to be the ultimate road-legal McLaren car. 

Sole purpose - power to weight ability

With 588kW and 800Nm from its 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 – McLaren’ s most powerful-ever internal combustion engine in a road car – and the ability to generate a staggering 800kg of downforce, the 1198kg (lighter than the Ford Fiesta) McLaren Senna delivers the purest possible connection between driver and car.

The McLaren Senna can cover 0–100km/h in 2.8 seconds; 0-200km/h is achieved in just 6.8 seconds and a standing quarter-mile in only 9.9 seconds. Top speed is 340km/h. 

While you're still wrapping your head around those mind-boggling figures, here is a quick start-up sound of the much anticipated McLaren Senna.
