McLaren was very selective with who it offered Senna build slots to in a bid to discourage its most loyal customers from flipping their track-oriented supercars.
However, that hasn’t stopped the buyer of a stunning gloss black Senna from quickly listing the car for sale on Romans International shortly after taking delivery.
This particular Senna is finished in a shade the British car manufacturer dubs Fire Black Elite. It has covered just 7 miles (11 km) since being delivered and is perhaps the only option for those who missed out on an official allocation from the factory.
McLaren is building just 500 examples of the Senna worldwide, and while it may not be as powerful as the hybrid P1, it is more track-focused than any road-legal McLaren before it.
Powering the Senna is largely the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 as the 720S, tweaked to now produce 789 hp and 590 lb-ft (799 Nm) of torque, a fully 79 hp and 47 lb-ft more than the 720S. Thanks to this grunt, the car reaches 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6.8 seconds, and accelerates through to a top speed of 211 mph.
As impressive as the Senna is accelerating in a straight-line, where it really shines is under heavy braking and cornering. In fact, the Senna can pull up from 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 100 meters (328 feet), a full 16 meters (52 m) less than the P1. In terms of aerodynamics, a set of extreme wings and splitters help to deliver no less than 800 kg of downforce at 155 mph (250 km/h).
This Senna comes complete with a host of options, including ultra-lightweight wheels, Gorilla Glass, a Bowers & Wilkins 7 speaker audio system, McLaren’s Track Telemetry system, and numerous MSO carbon fiber parts.
No asking price has been made public, but expect this Senna to sell for a significant premium over the £750,000 (~$960,000) McLaren required of its original customers.
