The McLaren Senna is the personification of McLaren’s DNA at its most extreme, creating the purest connection between car and driver. It is the most track-focused road car McLaren has ever built.
In the pursuit of the most rewarding and intuitive driving experience, pioneering active aerodynamics generate unprecedented levels of downforce. It is also the lightest vehicle McLaren has built since the iconic F1, with our most powerful road car engine to date. This combination creates a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 668PS-per-tonne (659bhp). The McLaren Senna is a new track benchmark for McLaren.
To observe the detailed work that has gone into every aerodynamic element of the McLaren Senna is mesmerizing. The resulting 800kg of downforce in Race mode at significantly less than maximum speed (155mph or 250km/h) is phenomenal, and the McLaren Senna creates, maintains and controls its aerodynamic performance to ensure the driver has the confidence to explore the limits such downforce unlocks.
Exhaustive, fearless engineering has led McLaren to re-evaluate and re-assess every component, no matter how small or insignificant, to maximise performance. McLaren has used carbon fibre for the monocoque, the body and everywhere we need lightness, rigidity and strength – it is the reason why the Senna is the lightest road vehicle McLaren has ever built.
