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.

“It is a great honor for us to return to China, and Beijing will provide the perfect backdrop to unveil the new McLaren Senna for the first time to the important Chinese market”, said the brand’s Sales and Marketing Director Jolyon Nash.
