Only Three Lucky Customers Can Have This Rare McLaren Senna

/ Comments

Chances are, you aren't one of them.

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is McLaren's bespoke division, responsible for building customized models and one-offs like the recent 600LT called the Comet Fade. Built by MSO, McLaren Beverly Hills has just revealed a special edition version of the Senna, which will be sold exclusively by the California dealership. The special edition is known as the McLaren XP - the 'XP' name typically referring to experimental prototypes.

Only 500 examples of the Senna were built and just three copies of the XP will be offered. Each of the three cars is themed after an accomplishment of the car's namesake, F1 driver Ayrton Senna, who tragically died in 1994 during a race.

All three cars feature a fully exposed gloss carbon body paired with the colors of national flags for different Grand Prix events around the world. Each of the three also features the country flag hand-painted on the rear wing. Other details include bespoke brake calipers, a 12 o'clock marker on the steering wheel, etched accelerator pedal, flags on the headrest, and a special 1 of 1 dedication plaque. In total, MSO spent 780 hours building each one.

The Master of Monaco XP celebrates Senna's six wins at Monaco from 1989 to 1993 with a red and white exterior and a bold red interior. The Lap of the Gods XP symbolizes the moment when Senna came from 5th to 1st at Donington Park and is finished with a red and blue exterior.

Finally, the Vitória Em Casa (Home Victory) XP is painted in green and yellow (the colors of Senna's home country of Brazil) and celebrates his first win there in 1991. Senna won the race even though he only had 6th gear, as all the other gears were broken.

"I only returned to reality when I saw the finish line," Senna said after the race. "Then I felt happy to be alive, to be in Interlagos, in my homeland, and with my happy compatriots. It wasn't the greatest victory of my life, but one where I gave everything I had."

O'Gara Coach and McLaren Beverly Hills are selling these three cars for $1,435,328, but we assume all three have been spoken for.
