Mc Laren Names Hypercar After F1 Legend Ayrton Senna

Now that the McLaren Senna has been revealed, we can say publicly how happy we are to be a part of this project'.

As a hypercar, the McLaren Senna predictably has doors that open upward.

The rear-wheel-drive two-seater has a race-derived suspension aimed to deliver control and balance, while an electro-hydraulic steering system "rewards accurate inputs and gives the purest feedback". And two seats - but with absolute focus on the importance of the one that the driver occupies.

The final build slot for McLaren's new track-focused Senna supercar has been auctioned off for £2million.

"The McLaren Senna is a auto like no other: the personification of McLaren's motorsport DNA, legalized or road use but designed and developed from the outset to excel on a circuit", McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt said in a statement.

When one names their top dog hypercar after a Formula 1 champion considered by many one of the greatest drivers - if not THE greatest - to honor this motorsport discipline, expectations are overwhelming.
