McLaren Senna unveiled with 588kW

McLaren Senna revealed: 'brutal' track-focused hypercar produces 789bhp

McLaren Senna gets early reveal on social media

McLaren has kept tight lipped on 0-62mph performance and top speeds, but what we do know is the vehicle weights a svelte 1,198kg, which when combined with the Senna's horsepower delivered through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, promises to produce some pretty staggering performance numbers. In fact, this is what Senna's nephew had to say about this: "The McLaren Senna honors my uncle because it is so utterly dedicated to delivering a circuit experience that allows a driver to be the best they can be possibly be". Moreover, McLaren equipped Senna with an engine that puts out 798 horsepower and in case you didn't know, it's named after one of the most famous Formula 1 drivers to ever live, Ayrton Senna.

This new Senna model is packing track level performance despite being road legal - somehow. Door handles, windows switches and the engine start button have all been moved to the ceiling of the interior, while space behind the car's carbon-fibre bucket seats is only big enough for two crash helmets.

"Our family is extremely proud of the naming of the new Ultimate Series McLaren Senna".

Only 500 units of the McLaren Senna will be on sale, and the last unit being auctioned for the Ayrton Senna Institute charity.

With a focus on uncompromised performance, McLaren says the Senna is "the purest expression yet of the company's "form follows function" philosophy". The fully adjustable suspension uses an interconnected hydraulic kinetic roll system meaning it adjusts ride height and stiffness to suit the road.

The aerodynamic teardrop-shaped silhouette has an active carbon rear-spoiler, a large front splitter and a one-piece carbon rear double diffuser. The custom Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo rubber will lay down all the power for you while the carbon ceramic discs make sure you stop in time. There's a roof scoop that feeds air into the engine's carbon-fiber intake manifold to amplify induction noise.

The driver-focused cockpit features an electro-hydraulic steering rack and button-less wheel, elongated carbon-fiber paddle shifters that are created to be used with race gloves, the choice of Alcantara or leather bucket-seats and a foldable dash display. You'll need £750,000 to get your hands on one, though such a cash splash can be seen as a good deed as McLaren is giving a portion of its profits to a foundation set up in Senna's name.
