FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION
The McLaren Senna is the ultimate distillation of the company’s ‘form follows function’ design mantra. To observe the detailed work that has gone into every aerodynamic element of the McLaren Senna is mesmerizing. To experience it all working in unison is truly incredible. 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.
CHALLENGE THE IMPOSSIBLE
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, and it will set the fastest lap times of any of their cars to date. That is what has driven them to build a track car that is unashamedly without compromise. One that is legalized for road use, but not sanitized to suit it.
Think of the McLaren Senna as a race car – It’s designed and built to perform on the track first and foremost. The active aerodynamics are pioneering, and the unprecedented visibility achieved through the unique glazed doors gives the driver total confidence. Exhaustive, fearless engineering has led them to revaluate and reassess every component, no matter how small or insignificant, to maximize performance. They have used carbon fiber for the monocoque, the body and everywhere for lightness, rigidity and strength – it is the reason the McLaren Senna is the lightest road vehicle McLaren Automotive has ever built.
