  • McLaren Senna with Ayrton Senna's F1 livery colors

    For many motorsport aficionados, it doesn't get much better than two colors: red and white. Those are the Marlboro livery colors the late Ayrton Senna championed as he won the 1988 Formula 1 World Championship with McLaren and the MP4/4 race car. One new McLaren Senna owner decided to dedicate his build slot to the Brazilian racing legend with the exact same colors. The owner is none other than Manny Khoshbin, an American entrepreneur with a wild collection of supercars, and he has a video out showing him taking delivery of the car. The colors, per the dealership where it was delivered, are...

  • First McLaren Senna in the United States

    The U.S. often gets downgraded versions of high-performance cars. Be it the 5-mph impact bumpers of the 1970s or down-powered engines forced to meet emissions regulations, we are sometimes left jealous of the European versions of certain cars. Today is a different day, though, because this time the U.S. gets the good one. The US-spec McLaren Senna is louder than the version sold in Europe. Louder is better, at least when you're talking about a 789-horsepower British-born hyper exotic. The Senna's noise arrives thanks to a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, which routes its bark through an...

    McLaren brought back a legendary name Saturday night, one from its pedigree of historic Formula One racing. The new McLaren Senna was unveiled in England, a new hypercar in the automaker's stable complete with 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque motivating just 2,641 pounds of mass (dry). The mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive car boasts a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 at its heart, sunk deep into an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber chassis wrapped in more carbon fiber, with an aggressive stance and functional aerodynamics hammering every stretch of pavement it conquers.
