  • Gloss carbon fibre elements take 1,000 hours to make
  • Yellow and green paint pays tribute to legendary racing driver Ayrton Senna
If you’re paying tribute to Ayrton Senna – one of the most iconic racing drivers that ever raced – then you’d better make something pretty nice. Not content with naming its latest hypercar after him, McLaren has now created a special edition version of the Senna, just in time for the Geneva Motor Show.

The McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO has been embellished by the company’s McLaren Special Operations department. The lashings of carbon fibre – some 67 new parts – took some 1,000 hours to make, and the yellow paint a further 250 hours. Green brake calipers contrast with the yellow and pay tribute to Senna’s racing helmet. The new car also sports lightweight carbon fibre and aluminium wheels The bespoke work added an estimated £300,000 to the car’s £750,000 price tag.

Just 500 versions of the regular Senna will be built, powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4.0-litre V8 engine producing a whopping 800 horsepower, which will take it all the way to 211mph. Make no mistake, it’s a very, very fast car.
