McLaren Senna MSO Has All the Carbon Fiber
The McLaren Senna is named after late Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, and now McLaren Special Operations has unveiled an example of the car inspired by the Brazillian driver’s helmet.
The McLaren Senna MSO features naked carbon fiber bodywork, which is joined by Solar Yellow and Laurel Green accents. Ayrton Senna’s iconic helmet was yellow, green and black – intended to mimic the colors of the Brazilian flag.
Yellow and green accents are also present in the cabin, with the door gas strut and contrasting stitching painted Laurel Green and the 12 0’clock marking on the steering wheel finished in yellow. There’s also an embossed Senna ‘S’ logo on the seat headrests.
Additionally, McLaren is showing off its new MSO 7-spoke carbon fiber wheel option for the Senna. The wheels are the only alternative design option offered on the supercar and will be available as a dealer-installed option. McLaren says the wheels are 10 percent lighter than the Senna’s standard wheel and aid in performance by reducing unsprung weight. The automaker says the wheels also improve acceleration, braking and steering response.
Just 500 examples of the McLaren Senna will be built, all of which have already been spoken for. Luckily you’ll be able to see this car on display in Geneva when the show kicks off next week.
