One Of The First US-Spec McLaren Sennas Up For Sale

Auction / 14 Comments

It’s one of only 120 US-spec McLaren Sennas to roll off the production line.

The Senna may not be one of the prettiest supercars McLaren has ever built, but it's certainly one of the most brutal. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 that produces 789 hp, enabling the supercar to rocket from 0-62 mph time in 2.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 208 mph.

Thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber, the Senna also weighs just 2,641 pounds, making it the lightest McLaren road car since the F1. Combined with its menacing aerodynamic exterior incorporating a unique front splitter, rear double diffuser, and a massive rear wing, the Senna is essentially a road-legal track monster. Acquiring one isn't easy, however.

Production of the McLaren Senna is capped at 500 units, and, unsurprisingly, every single one has already been sold. Of these, just 120 have been allocated to the US. The car is becoming even rarer since a few customer examples have been destroyed including one owned by YouTuber Salomondrin who was forced to watch his beloved Senna burn to the ground. If you're desperate to own a McLaren Senna, Barrett-Jackson is selling one of the very first examples at its annual Scottsdale auction this week.

Finished in a unique shade of Amethyst Black, this is the fifth McLaren Senna to roll off the production line. It's also only been driven 281 miles, so it's practically brand new. If you missed your chance to get on the McLaren Senna order list, this could be an alternative way of acquiring one.

There's no price estimate, but we wouldn't be surprised if it exceeds the car's original $1 million asking price since the Senna has long been sold out. Used McLaren P1s, which has also been sold out, tend to go for big bucks, yet the Senna's aerodynamics generate 40 percent more downforce, 30 percent more lateral grip, and is faster around the track than the last McLaren Ultimate Series.
