2018 McLaren Senna

The McLaren Senna joins the lineage of the F1 and P1 as one of the company's ultimate hypercars. The F1, P1, and Senna were all created with a somewhat different design philosophy. The F1 was intended as the ultimate purist performance car possible with 1990s technology, with a focus on extreme light weight (2509 lbs) and a naturally-aspirated V12 producing 627 hp.

The P1 was a much different beast. It utilized a hybrid design putting out a total of 903 hp from a twin turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 and an electric motor. It was also a much heavier car at 3411 lbs.

The Senna combines qualities of both cars, but unlike the F1 and P1, its primary focus is the race track, though it remains road legal. The Senna produces 789 hp from its twin-turbocharged 4 liter V8, the most poweful engine ever in a McLaren. (By comparison, the engine alone of the P1 had an output of 727 hp). Most impressively, it combines this extreme power with a weight of only 2641 lbs. The most arresting feature of the Senna is the lower half of the doors which can be ordered with glass panels in place of carbon fiber.

Production is limited to 500 cars, and the car is priced at £750,000. The entire run is already sold out.
