McLaren Senna GT-R Launched

Say Hello To The McLaren Senna GTR: The Ultimate Track Weapon

It wasn't any regular run-of-the-mill production vehicle from the British automaker, but rather was limited to only 500 units - all of which are sold out - with the intention of setting fast lap times. You might still be able to snag a watch, but all 500 Senna road cars have been pre-sold, the company said.

Certainly it's the thought of it which has driven Woking into revealing the GTR (or a working approximation of it) so close to the launch of the Senna.

McLaren has revealed an Ultimate Series track-only version of its McLaren Senna at the Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren Senna GT-R Concept. For the time being, it remains a concept vehicle. It also represents a more-profitable project over developing a race auto for WEC.

"The McLaren Senna was designed from the outset with the full spectrum of road and track requirements in mind, so developing a GTR version is within the scope of the original project", McLaren Automotive Design Engineering Director, Dan Parry-Williams, explains. The firm certainly expects the customer base to be made up of broadly the same people - although you won't actually need to own a road-legal Senna to buy the GTR. But, most of the styling and parts fitted onto the vehicle do serve a objective as it follows McLaren's form-follows-function design.

The aggressive aero, which also includes a vast front splitter, will also form a big chunk of the performance increase, helping to produce up to 1000kg of downforce. This, along with the active rear wing, combines to create up to 1,000kg of downforce. Much of the body is fitted with quick-release catches, making it easier to replace fenders and other exterior pieces during the heat of competition.

Paired with a race-style transmission, the carmaker expects the auto to be faster in a straight line compared to its road-going sibling. A race-style transmission will make it easier to slam through the gears, too. Underneath, it will also have improved handling thanks to a revised double wishbone suspension setup.
