Autocar - - ROAD TEST -

The Senna’s stan­dard spec is in­tended to save weight. If you want an au­dio sys­tem, air con­di­tion­ing or even Blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity for your phone, you have to add them as op­tions. Some of those op­tions don’t cost any­thing, but the Bow­ers & Wilkins seven-speaker au­dio sys­tem costs £5500; and, be­cause our test car didn’t have it, we can’t com­ment on its qual­ity.

The por­trait-ori­ented in­fo­tain­ment re­mains a chal­lenge at first, but you be­come used to ne­go­ti­at­ing its menu struc­tures with prac­tice. The Senna does get Mclaren’s fac­tory nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem, although it re­mains a lit­tle bit un­in­tu­itive to pro­gramme and doesn’t al­ways sug­gest the best route. Smart­phone mir­ror­ing isn’t pos­si­ble.

Mclaren’s Track Teleme­try app is an op­tional fea­ture but ought to be on ev­ery Senna. It re­lays and records much more data than ri­val sys­tems, from throt­tle po­si­tion to tyre tem­per­a­ture to brake pedal pres­sure, and records and re­lays video from three cam­eras around the car to be en­joyed later.
