McLaren has issued a recall for its track-focused Senna hypercar in Australia.
Documents from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission reveal that part of the vehicle’s engine harness may come into contact with the metal link pipe heatshield and chafe, causing damage to wires within the engine harness bundle.
If this were to occur, McLaren has determined that the engine may stall, misfire, or rupture the exhaust system and potentially cause a loss of power, increasing the risk of an accident and injury to those inside the Senna.
As Australia is only a small market for the Senna, just 13 examples are involved in the recall. McLaren will contact owners and advise them to fix the issue free of charge.
Back in July, we wrote about one of the rare McLaren Sennas in the Land Down Under hitting the used car market. That example is finished in gloss carbon fiber and contrasted with bright yellow accents. It is one of the units being recalled.
No mention has been made on whether or not the recall could potentially extend to Sennas currently residing in other countries.
At the start of July, the McLaren Senna owned by former McLaren Formula 1 driver Gerhard Berger caught fire during a demonstration run at the Austrian Grand Prix. Images and video from the circuit showed flames coming out of the rear of the car. Fortunately, track marshals were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.
Also, a McLaren Senna owned by YouTuber Salomondrin was destroyed by an inferno on New Year’s Eve last year.
