Presented by Mecum Auctions – For sheer electrifying performance, this 2019 McLaren Senna is absolutely without peer, a completely bespoke automobile of uncanny capability. The Senna lives up to both its revered namesake and its lofty position as the crown jewel in McLaren’s Ultimate Series portfolio of exclusive hyper-performance automobiles. The Senna’s magic begins with its featherweight carbon fiber MonoCage III chassis, enveloped in carbon fiber body structures designed to optimize passive aerodynamics in concert with such active devices as the massive articulated rear wing and dual aeroblades within the front fenders that are designed to apply balancing front downforce as speeds climb.
And climb they do; the Senna’s midmounted powerplant is an untethered wonder. Designated M840TR 90, it’s an all-aluminum DOHC 4.0L V-8 with dual twin-scroll turbochargers and dry-sump oiling delivering 789 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque through a 7-speed dual-clutch SSG automatic transmission that together rocket the Senna to 60 MPH in a scant 2.7 seconds on the way to a top speed of 211 MPH. Electrohydraulic rack-and-pinion steering, carbon ceramic disc brakes with forged monobloc 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers, and an all-encompassing active suspension system are influenced by the driver’s choice of three powertrain modes affecting ride height and spring rates, braking and cornering, an astounding developmental breakthrough in driver/machine integration.
More advanced technology is seen in the Senna’s twin-hinge dihedral doors, Gorilla Glass windows, Bowers and Wilkins seven-speaker audio system, front and rear parking sensors, back-up camera and McLaren track telemetry system. Presenting in impeccable as-new condition with just 186 miles, this 2019 McLaren Senna is loaded with special custom appointments and finishes courtesy of McLaren’s Special Operations department, where McLaren customers’ dreams are fulfilled. In this case, it’s a marriage of special one-off Midnight Purple paint with matching Mauvine Purple Visible Carbon Fiber (VCF) interior surfaces, Mauvine Blue brake calipers, satin-finish carbon fiber aeroblades and door sills, Carbon Black Alcantara steering wheel, Dark Stealth exhaust heat shield and 19- and 20-inch Matte Dark Stealth center-lock ultra-lightweight wheels with Midnight Purple centers. This is a truly remarkable machine of unmatched pedigree and performance.
This McLaren Senna will be auctioned off during Mecum Auctions’ Indy 2021 event, which runs May 14-22.
