McLaren Senna And Limited Edition 570GT To Bow In Beijing

McLaren has announced the debut of a limited-run 570GT at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, which starts this Wednesday.

The Sports Series model uses “traditional Chinese craftsmanship”, as per the company based in Goodwood, and “hand-crafted panels from a traditional Chinese embroidery master”. In addition to the 570GT limited edition, McLaren will also celebrate the local debut of the Senna.

The track-focused hypercar, which is faster on some circuits than the hybrid P1, uses a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, derived from the automaker’s 3.8-liter unit.
