McLaren Senna GTR Launched

A track-only version of the McLaren Senna

McLaren has revealed an Ultimate Series track-only version of its McLaren Senna at the Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren Senna GTR Concept.

The GTR is a more agressive, powerful, modified version of the Senna, which will produce up to 1,000kg of downforce, 200kg more than the road car. It’s set to produce the “quickest McLaren lap times outside of Formula 1, and become “the fastest sportscar McLaren has ever built”.

The McLaren Senna GTR shares its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with the road-legal McLaren Senna, but with a horsepower increase to at least 825PS making it faster than the road model in a straight line.

Further alterations for the McLaren Senna GTR include the additional benefit of a race-style transmission, revised double-wishbone suspension, Pirelli slick tyres, and a new wheel design developed specifically for circuit use.

Up to 75 examples of the GTR will be produced in Woking, England during 2019.

As it stands, like the P1 GTR before it, there are no confirmed plans for the Senna GT-R to race.

McLaren also teased a new Hyper GT car which will be revealed at the end of 2018, which will “pay homage to the F1”.
