First Images Of New McLaren Senna Track-Focused Hypercar

Images have just leaked online which show McLaren’s recently-announced P15 hypercar, officially dubbed the McLaren Senna.

Set to premiere in full in just a couple of hours, the McLaren Senna is the latest model in the Ultimate Series family of models. Reports claim that the Senna will be powered by an upgraded version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 of the 720S, outfitted with bespoke internals and new turbochargers. It should deliver roughly 789 hp.

Underpinning the Senna will be McLaren’s Monocage II carbon fiber tub, ensuring that the hypercar weighs less than 1,300 kg. This should result in a power-to-weight ratio that easily eclipses that of the hybrid P1.

These leaked images showcase the hypercar’s curious design. Up front, it takes obvious design inspiration from the 720S, with similar headlights but a more pronounced splitter. Elsewhere, we can see that the P15 has transparent panels in the doors, a glass canopy and a small roof scoop. Additionally, there is a towering rear wing with swan neck uprights and a set of center-locking wheels. Odd is an understatement.

Just 500 units of the McLaren Senna are apparently scheduled for production.

    Nasty!

  • Shtekeris

    I’m sure it looks great in person 😂 So weird.

  • AG

    Honestly? Looks awful…

  • Sufyan Shahid

    I sort of like it but it comes off as super ricey

  • Denzel

    Ok so this looks.. odd, strange, weird, McLaren’s were always top notch in performance but never pretty but they could have tried with this one. I love the F1 to the 720s in terms of looks. The 720s is a stunning car to look at and it’s design screams F1 the headlights were the hardest things to get over till you seen it in different shades of colors and things. But this I don’t know yet.

  • Akira

    That’s… hideous. Proportions are really wrong.

  • Honda NSX-R

    The 720S style front end doesn’t really work for this car imo, but otherwise this car should be pretty badass

    • europeon

      Does 720s’ front end work on any car really? Including the 720s.

      • Honda NSX-R

        It does work on the 720S

  • Xandao

    God damn, this looks so terrible. Performance apart, Airton must be turning over in his grave.

  • Ermal Morina

    That is hideous.Honestly,it looks so bad.I know it’ll have amazing performance,but those looks just eclipse everything about the car.
    What on earth where they thinking :/

  • Bash

    #fastandugly I guess

  • fgclolz

    I’d still take an F1 or a 12C.

  • This car is bit ugly, but… this is not about beauty, its about speed. If it will outperform GT2RS, i will forgive it’s exterior…

  • ctk4949

    If its for a track, then its fine. Otherwise its really fugly!!!!

  • I’m sad the Senna name is used fo this…

  • Chad Gordon

    Um, No thank you.
