"Fux Green" hypercar joins three other McLarens in the same collection
It's been revealed, it's been driven, and it's sold out. Now all that's left for the McLaren Senna is to reach its customers. And that's just what McLaren is doing now.
Among the first to be delivered is this green-tinted example, ordered by an American customer, where about a third of them will end up. But this one hasn't been delivered to just any customer: this Senna is for noted New York collector, philanthropist, and mattress mogul Michael Fux.
Name not ringing a bell? Fux is the same guy who ordered that fuschia McLaren 720S, a mint-green Rolls-Royce Wraith, and recently sold his entire Mercedes-AMG Black Series collection. He also had his Ferrari Enzo wrecked by a mechanic. But now we know what he's replaced it with, and why he sold all those hardcore Benzes.
Fux's Senna has been (like most will be) done up specially by McLaren Special Operations, in a unique emerald green-tinted carbon fiber. The verdant weave – dubbed Fux Green – features both inside and out, with white leather and black Alcantara upholstery within.
The Full Visual Carbon Fiber Body option comprises 67 individual components and takes nearly 1,000 hours to complete. This is on top of the time it takes to build the rest of the car, which we surmise is no quick process, either. Fortunately the hypercar has the power and performance to make up for lost time.
The McLaren Senna packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, just like the one in the 720S, but tuned to deliver 789 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. Channeled to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, it'll send the flyweight 2,641-pound performance machine to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds.
“We’re pleased to deliver the first McLaren Senna in the North American market,” McLaren's North American regional president Tony Joseph. “This is such a special car, designed and engineered to be the ultimate road-legal track car ever produced by McLaren. We know that owners can’t wait to get their cars on the circuit, and we’re eager for them to get behind the wheel.”
Along with the green Senna and the magenta 720S, Fux also owns an orange 12C coupe and a custom purple 12C Spider. McLaren will be displaying this car at The Quail “motorsports gathering” during Monterey Car Week next month, a year after the same owner's fuschia 720S made its splash on the Concept Car Lawn at Pebble Beach.
