McLaren Senna Carbon Theme, 'surprise announcement' at Geneva

McLaren Senna Carbon Theme, 'surprise announcement' at Geneva

The customisation of a standard auto takes around a thousand hours, out of which 250 hours are needed for the yellow paint accents itself. It's one of five themes developed by the company's bespoke department for the road-legal track vehicle, and probably the most spectacular.

The designers at bespoke division McLaren Special Operations have created five visual packages ('themes' in MSOspeak) - each of which adds another £300 000 (R4.88 million) to the base price - so that you can bling up your Senna without compromising its performance.

In fact, McLaren says that this new Senna's Solar Yellow and Laurel Green detailing echoes the helmet livery of legendary F1 driver and namesake for this vehicle, Ayrton Senna.

There are more options to come for the Senna to tempt owners to part with cash, including a carbon fibre wheel option.

Mom says Chi - (pronounced "shy") - looks "a tiny bit like" sister North or brother Saint , but is " definitely her own person ". Donning a Kim Kardashian West is in love with the "desi" attire and Indian jewellery.

Prior to its debut at Geneva, a "Carbon Theme" McLaren Senna has been revealed.

The colours are carried through to the interior of the vehicle, with the door gas strut in Laurel Green and the contrast stitching on the Carbon Black Alcantara® trim on seats, door inners and facia. A yellow centre band is also present on the steering wheel, while Senna "S" logos appear around the vehicle - just so you know exactly what it is. Without a tyre fitted, the hub weighs just 7.5kg, a 10 percent saving on the standard wheel. The cabin is trimmed in Carbon Black Alcantara and S (for Senna) logos feature both inside and out.

MSO is also demonstrating a special set of seven-spoke, center-lock wheels on the Senna show auto that are 10 percent lighter than the standard rims. MSO also says that the wheel offers a 10-15 percent reduction in rotating inertia, helping acceleration, deceleration and cornering. McLaren will build just 500 units of the Senna, and every one is already spoken for. "With the auto having generated so much interest since its unveiling in December, we knew we needed to produce something very special in order to showcase the unique talents of McLaren Special Operations". Each vehicle is priced at £750,000 and will be hand-assembled by specialists at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England, in a process taking close to 300 hours. Tucked at the very end of the text, McLaren says that in addition to introducing the Senna, the company will make some sort of "surprise announcement".
