McLaren Automotive is to offer a track-only version of its newest Ultimate Series model, the McLaren Senna. Unveiled at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, the McLaren Senna GTR Concept produces more power and torque than the road-legal McLaren Senna and achieves the quickest McLaren lap times outside Formula 1.
A few months ago, McLaren unveiled their most extreme street-legal track car and all 500 units have already been sold. This past month at the Geneva Auto Convention, McLaren made another bold statement releasing a track-only version of the Senna- the McLaren Senna GTR, which will cost $1.4 million.
Only 75 of the most extreme McLaren will go to production, providing “The very limited number of customers who secure this car will be buying the closest experience you can get to a race car without actually lining up on a circuit grid,” McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt said in a press release.
The Senna series is inspired by one of McLaren’s greatest racing drivers, “utterly dedicated to allowing the driver to be the best they can possibly be.” The exact technical details of $1.4 million dollar vehicle will be released later this year, but what we do know is that while the McLaren Senna GTR will weight a similar 1, 198kg as its street legal predecessor (see video below), it will be even faster.
“The McLaren Senna GTR Concept unveiled in Geneva is not the finished article but it does give a clear indication of our thinking for the car, which promises to be the most extreme and exciting McLaren to drive for many years, if not ever.” –Design Engineering Director, Dan Parry-Williams.
