A McLaren Senna – McLaren’s extreme addition to its Ultimate Series range – has been sold at McLaren’s Winter Ball for £2.4 million.
At the weekend we saw the reveal of the McLaren Senna, a track-focussed new addition to McLaren’s Ultimate Series range – and the news that all 500 cars McLaren plans to build are already sold out.
But McLaren actually kept one car back from allocation, and it went under the hammer at their Winter Ball in London this weekend.
At £750,000 (including taxes in the UK) the new Senna is a chunk cheaper than the P1, but it’s still a hefty amount, despite the promise it holds.
But one attendee at the Winter Ball was so enamoured of the Senna he dug very deep to deliver a winning bid of £2 million (plus tax – £2.4 million in the UK).
What the bidder gets is the most extreme road car McLaren has ever produced, with extreme aerodynamics, form totally dictated by function, 789bhp and the promise of scintillating track performance.
From the huge wing on the back to active front splitter, wheel arches which look like nothing else and aerodynamic functions abounding, the Senna makes no bones about its intentions or purpose.
McLaren are planning to give the Senna a public outing at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with deliveries commencing later in 2018, including the last car sold – this £2.4 million Senna.
