America's Getting Its Own McLaren Senna Special Edition

Reveal / Comments

It has as much power on tap as the track-only McLaren Senna GTR.

To celebrate the legendary F1 GTR winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, McLaren built five road-going F1 LM models inspired by the GTR. Among the enhancements included redesigned cam covers, more power, less weight, and improved aerodynamics thanks to the GTR-style bodywork. As a homage to the Can-Am sports cars from the 1960s and McLaren racing colors, the cars were finished in Papaya Orange.

Now, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the F1 GTR's historic Le Mans victory, McLaren Special Operations has designed a new special-edition version of the McLaren Senna. Limited to just five units, the McLaren Senna LM was commissioned specifically for the US market by McLaren Orlando and McLaren North Jersey.

In truth, we already knew MSO was planning a new special-edition Senna after photos of the LM leaked last year. Inspired by the original F1 LMs, each limited-edition McLaren Senna LM is finished in McLaren Orange and have received several factory upgrades.

Like the standard Senna, power is provided by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, but the output has increased from 789 hp to 814 hp to match the track-only Senna GTR. That's right, this is essentially a road-legal McLaren Senna GTR. The more powerful engine also sports new polished ports and cylinder heads. No performance specifications have been released, but the Senna LM should be marginally faster than the standard Senna, which will sprint from 0-62 mph in a blistering 2.8 seconds and max out at 208 mph.

Other exterior enhancements include aluminum wheels, quad exhaust tips finished in satin gold, bespoke aerodynamically-enhanced bodywork, and a 24k gold heatshield.

Inside, the bespoke interior features titanium nitride foot pedals, racing center locks, and LM branding, which is also applied to the exterior. No pricing details have been revealed, but it's safe to assume the Senna LM costs more than the regular Senna, which already has an asking price of $1.5 million. Lanzante is also celebrating the F1 GTR's legacy with the LM 25 collection consisting of seven bespoke McLaren models.
