“…an uncompromised performance focus, honed to ensure the purest possible connection between driver and machine…”Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive
The carbon fibre Monocage III chassis that forms the core of the McLaren Senna is a further development of the structure that underpins the McLaren 720S and the strongest monocoque ever built by McLaren for a road-legal vehicle. Every body panel is made from carbon fibre, in line with their focus on the weight of every individual component that has resulted in the McLaren Senna being the lightest road-legal McLaren since the F1 road car.
Dynamic parameters are adjusted by the driver through the Active Dynamics Panel located on the centre console to select Comfort, Sport or Track modes or via a switch in a roof-mounted panel to access Race mode.
A dual-clutch, seamless-shift, seven-speed gearbox delivers power to the rear wheels. A fully automatic mode is the default, with the driver able to choose full manual control of gear shifts via paddles mounted on a rocker behind the steering wheel. The elongated carbon fibre paddles are optimised to be used both with or without racing gloves, and create a deep sense of mechanical connection with the McLaren Senna.
The ultimate road-legal, track-concentrated McLaren hypercar will make its public debut in March 2018 at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show.
