You Can Still Get A McLaren Senna, But It’ll Cost You An Extra 720S

Want to get your hands on a new McLaren Senna? Too bad, because it’s sold out. But there’s one broker who’s selling a build slot.

Known for providing hypercars to those short of patience (but not of means), Knight International has a spot on the order list available. And all it’ll cost you is the price of a 720S… over and above the MSRP of the Senna.

For those just joining us, the Senna is McLaren’s new Ultimate Series hypercar and the effective successor to the P1 hybrid. It’s built around a carbon monocoque with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 sending 789 horsepower (588 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Weighing in at a spritely 2,641 pounds (1,198 kg), it’ll rocket to 62 miles (100 kilometers) per hour from a standstill in just 2.2 seconds and top out at 211 mph (340 km/h).

The factory in Woking will only build 500 examples, each carrying a sticker price of £750,000 – equivalent to about €850k or $990k. On top of that, you’ll have to pay £240,000 (€273k or $318k) to secure the build slot. That premium is about the price of a new 720S, and brings the total up to £990k – about €1.12 or $1.3 million. That’s still less, mind you, than the £1.9 million (€2.16m/$2.67m) that the last build slot sold for at auction (pictured above).

For what it’s worth, Knight International anticipates the investment to net over €500,000 (£440k/$580k) on the open market, or roughly double the premium it’s charging. And you’d still get to configure it exactly the way you want. Plus you’d get the enjoyment of actually driving the thing – but then the more you drive it, the less it’s likely to be worth second-hand.

  • Aren’t McLaren prohibit this kind of activity? Selling a build slot. Nevertheless this is what I hate about current supercar broker, seeing cars as investment and probably making them stay indoor in a garage somewhere.
