The Newest and Lightest McLaren Senna is Unleashed

McLaren has lit up the scene again with a new lighter McLaren Senna. Making it’s first appearance in England, the preview of what’s to come was enough to incite a frenzy of clamoring buyers who were much more interested in acquisition than they were in browsing. Window shoppers will have their opportunity later in 2018.

McLaren Senna the new road beast

The automaker took its time in presenting the new Senna because there was no need to rush. It’s a no-brainer that the new hypercar would whip up a frenzy at the moment of its unveiling, but this was a review of its official introduction to the world. The new McLaren Senna will tear up the road with a 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged engine, and let’s not forget that it’s a V-8. 800 horsepower along with 590 pound feet of torque easily propels the auto mass of a mere 2,641 pounds. All the specs aren’t out yet, but by comparison of others in its class, we’re guessing a top speed that exceeds 200 mph is close, and perhaps performance that takes it from zero to sixty in under three seconds won’t be a guess that’s far off.

Ultra light performance

The new Senna features a carbon fiber chassis, that allowed for additional wrapping of the same material with no sacrifice of lightness. Designed and engineered for the maximum in aerodynamics and aggression with the addition of a greater downforce that holds the Senna to the ground for the ultimate in overall performance when you’ll depend on it to hug the corners and stick to the road.

Inspired to achieve greater things

The new McLaren Senna is inspired by the 720s, but it’s been given an overhaul that lost some weight and added some lean muscle mass. All the fat has been trimmed from its original inspiration with some tweaking to the V-8, greater downforce and more efficient and higher functioning aerodynamics. Inspired innovation is the term that describes the brilliance in design and engineering of the new Senna.

Complementing the V8

The powerful engine in the Senna makes certain demands on the transmission. Engineers had the foresight to equip the road beast with a dual clutch 7 speed automatic that is well suited to handle the furious shifting tassks. Monitoring the road for a firm planting of the wheels is a wishbone suspension system with constancy thanks to the interconnected dampers. You can of course adjust them to meet the necessary requirements of the situation. Mechanical antiroll bars are replaced with the innovative kinetic roll system.

Taking is as far as your mettle allows

Satisfaction is guaranteed if your goal is to take control of the fiery beast that will do your bidding. You won’t need to commit past you comfort level with toggle race modes that are configurable. Choose between Track, Race, Sport or Comfort modes to find your current level of expertise and daring, for matching driving conditions and how you feel on any given day.

McLaren Senna interior

Open the door to find the definite influence of the 720S, but as distant relatives go, it’s only a familial resemblance. the two passenger cockpit offers a stark if not somewhat Spartan environment that doesn’t allow for interior storage. Above the driver’s seat is the jet fighter like start button with a clear view of the exposed struts that are required for the dihedral door operation. This is no great surprise, but it’s a nice familiar element. Paddle shifters of carbon fiber that are also evident in the doors, wheel and dash. One high tech controller is central on the panel in the large touchscreen accessibly, but not inconveniently.

Moving to the exterior

There may be a resemblence of the aerodynamic design of the Senna, but its lost all but the necessities of the 720S’ elements for a slimmer waistline. Weight reduction hasn’t sacrificed the intended function with a redesign in the aerodynamics. From head to toe, airflow is whisked away from the car in the direction of the dual stage carbon fiber wing.

Making it official

McLaren is on deck to debut the new Senna at the 2018 Geneva motor show. The event will take place in March, but the limited production of 500 autos have already been spoken for with those who were willing to pay $1 million without the blink of an eye and at just a glance.
