First customer deliveries of the ultimate McLaren track-concentrated car for the road fast approaching.
McLaren Automotive today releases new images and B-roll footage of the McLaren Senna in action. The assets were shot on location in Portugal at the Estoril race circuit, during the Global Test Drive for the new McLaren Ultimate Series model.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 at the heart of the McLaren Senna is the most powerful McLaren road car engine ever, producing 800PS (789bhp) and 800Nm (590lb ft), with 700Nm (516lb ft) of torque available at just 3,000rpm. Designated M840TR, the powertrain features race-inspired dry sump lubrication and a flat-plane crankshaft, and lightweight connecting rods and pistons to reduce mass in the powertrain. The distinctive roof-mounted ‘snorkel’ feeds air directly into a bespoke carbon fibre plenum set atop the engine. This ultra-efficient air pathway, together with low-inertia twin-scroll turbochargers and electronic wastegates, delivers instantaneous throttle response.
The McLaren Senna combines the revolutionary suspension technology developed for the McLaren P1™ with our latest control theory to create RaceActive Chassis Control II. Offering truly uncompromising performance, this innovative new hydraulic suspension features a Race mode, which significantly reduces the ride height, lowering the centre of gravity and increasing the power of the aerodynamics. The level of sophistication in the McLaren Senna is groundbreaking. The hydraulic suspension allows relative compliance at low speeds in Race mode, aiding mechanical grip. Then, as speeds increase, it stiffens, supporting the increasing aerodynamic loads that would otherwise cause the vehicle to ground out on the circuit.
The braking system is the most advanced ever fitted to a McLaren road car. The next-generation carbon ceramic brakes utilise racing technology, and each disc takes seven months to create – seven times longer than a conventional carbon ceramic disc. The Formula 1™ inspired front calipers feature a super-stiff monobloc design and six ventilated pistons to reduce temperatures. A brake booster used on the track-only McLaren P1™ GTR enhances modulation and pedal consistency. The resulting braking performance is phenomenal: 124mph (200km/h) to standstill is achieved in just 100 metres, and less than 30 metres is covered when stopping from 62mph (100km/h).
A dual-clutch, seamless-shift, seven-speed gearbox delivers power from the mid-mounted engine to the rear wheels. Adopted from Formula 1™, Ignition Cut technology sees a momentary cut of the fuel spark during a gearshift for the fastest possible changes, and is accompanied by a dramatic aural ‘crack’ on both upshifts and downshifts. McLaren’s extensively developed transmission and software strategy has a launch-control function that delivers truly breathtaking straight-line performance. Acceleration from 0-62mph (100km/h) is achieved in 2.8 seconds, 0-124mph (200km/h) in 6.8 seconds and 0-186mph (300km/h) in 17.5 seconds. The standing quarter mile is completed in 10.0 seconds, and the maximum speed is 340km/h (211 mph).
