Manny Khoshbin is a wealthy businessman and avid car collector who recently took delivery of a sexy Senna with a two-tone Marlboro livery and the number 12 that pays tribute to the car in which the late Ayrton Senna won his first Grand Prix with McLaren.
According to Khosbin, the number decals alone (which are painted and not mere stickers) cost almost $30,000 on top of the $1 million starting price. Elsewhere, his Senna features the aforementioned two-tone paint job, which was another option, and he also paid more to have some of the carbon fiber trim finished in gloss black. All in all, the optional extras set him back a whopping $250,000.
A very steep sum was paid for the official McLaren water bottle, which is part of the carbon fiber push-to-drink system between the seats. How much was that? A scarcely believable seven thousand bucks! Sure, it does work kind like the one in F1 cars, feeding water through a tube to the driver’s mouth, but… $7k FOR A WATER BOTTLE? Seriously?
Before showing us that unbelievably expensive piece of kit in his garage, which also houses other hypercars such as a McLaren P1, Pagani Huayra and Bugatti Veyron, Khoshbin took it out for a short drive. That’s hardly a review, but you will get some interesting feedback and, more importantly, healthy doses of that twin-turbo V8 being thrashed.
