McLaren’s Insane New Road Car Is Named After Senna

This is McLaren's new 789bhp beast named after the legendary three-time F1 world champion

It’s road legal, but don’t expect any comforts as this car is entirely track-focused, so much so the car’s philosophy comes from this famous Senna quote.

“You commit yourself to such a level where there is no compromise. You give everything you have; everything, absolutely everything.”

There’ll only be 500 of them available and if you want one, it’ll cost ya £750,000. For that price you get the most powerful McLaren road car engine ever at 789bhp.

It’ll also be the lightest McLaren road car since the ‘F1’ at just 1198kg, so a quick look at these numbers and you can already see that it’s going to be very, very, very fast.
