Un­com­pro­mis­ing Ap­proach A spe­cial 789bhp hy­per­car trib­ute to the late Ayr­ton Senna

Bespoke - - OMG! -

In terms of no holds barred per­for­mance cars, Mclaren has pro­duced two leg­endary mod­els: the F1 (1992-1998) and the P1 (2013-2015). But for their third ef­fort, the com­pany says they wanted to avoid the com­pro­mises made on the P1 in need­ing to sat­isfy both road and track re­quire­ments. So they’re giv­ing us two mod­els in­stead: a streetle­gal 1 mil­lion USD track car called ‘Senna’ (right), and an up­com­ing Hy­per-gt. The Senna looks bru­tal, as it un­com­pro­mis­ingly pri­ori­tised func­tion over form, so as to ex­tract maxim down­force from its rev­o­lu­tion­ary ac­tive aero­dy­nam­ics. It’s also very light at 1,200kg, and the re­sult is a car that can do 0-100km/h in 2.8 secs, and 0-200 km/h in 6.8sec. Top speed? 340 km/h.
