McLaren previews R17m Senna Carbon Theme show auto

McLaren

Not content with naming its latest hypercar after him, McLaren has now created a special edition version of the Senna, just in time for the Geneva Motor Show.

Chief among them is the Carbon Theme. As one would expect, it's covered in carbon fiber, and the interior echoes the theme with Carbon Black Alcantara trim. As you can probably guess, carbon-fibre is a big aspect of the Senna Carbon Theme, where it is used in great abundance.

The first of these - and this is how the show vehicle for Geneva has been finished - is the Carbon Therme, which is exactly what its name implies. Accents include Solar Yellow detailing on the sill exteriors, rear wing, and front active aero blades, combined with Laurel Green brake calipers. Anyhow, you're here to hear about the new Special, so here goes: The body is comprised of 67 parts that take nearly 1,000 hours to manufacture, with contrasting Solar Yellow accents on the sill exteriors, rear wing and front active aero blades (chalk up another 250 hours of MSO time right there) and Laurel Green brake calipers to complete the Senna homage by using the legendary Brazilian's helmet colours. A yellow centre band is also present on the steering wheel, while Senna "S" logos appear around the auto - just so you know exactly what it is.

McLaren has revealed images of a new £1m "theme" version of its Senna hypercar that's been put together by the auto maker's special operations division. The seats" headrests also sport a Senna "S' symbol, mimicking those on the end plates of the rear wing. There's also the "Senna" lettering on the right front fender. This seven-spoke wheel from MSO is up to 10 percent lighter than a standard alloy wheel, which will improve driving performance by reducing unspung mass. McLaren claims that it's made up of 67 special parts.

The McLaren Senna costs £750,000, and they're all sold.

With a £300,000 price tag for the MSO work alone, making this a £1.05m machine, the bespoke transformation doesn't come cheaply. They will be built by hand over 300 hours at McLaren's Woking factory.
