The McLaren Senna is the latest and greatest from the British hyper car and sports car brand. Named after the Formula 1 ace Ayrton Senna, the new model from McLaren is said to be the successor of the McLaren P1, the car that truly put McLaren on the exotic car map. Even though the McLaren name has been imprinted on the racing community since 1966 where the company entered its’ first Formula 1 race.
McLaren started to build exotic cars under the name McLaren Automotive with the first car being the McLaren MP4-12C. MP4-12C was to be in direct competition with Ferrari and their 458. Over the years McLaren has split up their exotic cars into 3 categories. The entry level McLaren Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series.
The McLaren Senna fits the bill for the Ultimate Series at the top of the food chain at the British car maker. The YouTuber Mr JWW was lucky enough to get a test drive of the limited run Senna.
