Woking, England - McLaren has just unleashed its most extreme road car ever, and it’s named after none other than the late, great Ayrton Senna, who won three F1 championships for McLaren before his untimely death in 1994.
McLaren refers to it as a track-focused hypercar that’s been “legalised for road use, but not sanitised to suit it”.
Thanks to its carbon fibre body panels and Monocage III chassis and, the Senna weighs little more than a mid-range VW Golf, at 1198kg.
The hypercar is powered by a mid-mounted 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 588kW and 800Nm and that makes for an astounding power to weight ratio of 491kW per tonne.
All this urge goes to the rear wheels only via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
