Listed for sale on JamesEdition is not a build slot, but an actual, physical, existing example of Woking’s most hardcore hypercar. And it can be yours for the low, low price of £1.25 million – or about $1.6 million at current exchange rates.
The example listed is almost entirely murdered out all in black, save for some yellow accents. The interior’s all black, too, lending the dubiously styled exotic a rather sinister appearance. It’s said to have only delivery mileage on it, which means that, for all fits and purposes, it is practically new.
Like any of the other 499 examples, this Senna packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 based on the unit employed in the 720S, but tuned to deliver 789 horsepower (588 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque, all channeled to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
With only 2,641 pounds (1,198 kg) to move around, that’s said to be enough to send McLaren’s latest Ultimate Series model scurrying to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds, covering the quarter-mile (402 meters) in under ten seconds, before topping out at a redline-limited 211 mph (340 km/h).
The asking price may seem a little steep, considering the £750,000 (~$980k) originally charged by the factory. But then, as we mentioned above, the entire production run is already sold out and these kind of limited run hypercars tend to appreciate since demand far outstrips supply. Moreover, according to the listing from exotic-auto broker Knight International, this Senna has over £100k (~$130k) worth of optional extras fitted.
So, when it comes down to it, you’re looking at a premium of about £400k for a car on which you otherwise couldn’t get your hands on. We’d say that’s not a bad deal for potential Senna customers, don’t you agree?
