McLaren is known for being one of the best car manufacturers in the world and this is entirely true. Just look at McLaren’s latest vehicle which was revealed in the Ultimate Series. We are talking about the McLaren Senna which is the successor of the highly popular P1 hybrid hypercar.
Brand-New McLaren Senna
The new supercar is going to be a limited edition and it will be a coupe that’s focused towards destroying tracks. Moreover, McLaren equipped Senna with an engine that puts out 798 horsepower and in case you didn’t know, it’s named after one of the most famous Formula 1 drivers to ever live, Ayrton Senna.
There’s a good reason why McLaren chose to name its brand-new vehicle after Ayrton Senna, and that’s because just like the famous driver, McLaren’s recently unveiled supercar is expected to dominate the tracks. In addition, Ayrton Senna actually worked for a period of five years with McLaren.
The Ayrton Senna Legacy
Since McLaren chose to use the name of someone who is famous for his prowess on the track, the car manufacturer had to go and get permission from the racer’s family. Luckily, the family couldn’t be prouder about this. In fact, this is what Senna’s nephew had to say about this: “The McLaren Senna honors my uncle because it is so utterly dedicated to delivering a circuit experience that allows a driver to be the best they can be possibly be”.
As previously mentioned, the new supercar will offer 798 horsepower. This is only possible because McLaren equipped the vehicle with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that produces 590 lb-ft of torque. Another impressive thing about the new McLaren is the fact that it weighs only 2,641 pounds without fluids. Therefore, McLaren Senna will fly on the road.
