Normally when a limited-run model of a automobile hits the market, its producer publishes an official press launch, photographs, and movies. McLaren, nonetheless, has not adopted that follow with the Senna LM.
Late last year, a collection of pictures had been posted on-line of a particular McLaren Senna LM delivered to McLaren Glasgow. It’s understood that McLaren is constructing 20 examples of the LM, every of which is alleged to be primarily based on the chassis of the Senna GTR. If they’re included within the whole manufacturing run of the restricted version, it’d imply that simply 55 examples of the Senna GTR shall be produced, versus the 75 items initially deliberate.
This explicit Senna LM is painted in Papaya Orange and was lately delivered in New Zealand, making it the one unit in Australiasia. Whereas McLaren isn’t speaking concerning the automobile, a consultant from the McLaren Auckland dealership is.
Because the title implies, the Senna LM takes inspiration from the legendary McLaren F1 LM. That is most obvious with the paint scheme and different particular touches that embrace the five-spoke wheels, roof scoop, a bunch of gloss carbon fiber components, and distinctive trimmings across the headlights.
As a result of McLaren itself has by no means formally commented on the automobile, powertrain specs stay unclear. We do understand it makes use of a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 just like the ‘common’ Senna, and on this video we be taught that it sports activities ported and polished heads and that it’s been blueprinted by MSO. There’s additionally a novel gold-painted exhaust system, and whereas the model supervisor from McLaren Auckland doesn’t say how a lot energy it has, he suggests it’s greater than the 789 hp of the Senna.
