McLaren Senna GTR Specifications

Real life Senna GTR

The McLaren Senna GTR with its 825 hp 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine is the “most extreme McLaren ever”! The hypercar was built for the race track.

A year after the British sports car manufacturer presented the concept for the McLaren Senna GTR, the Brits are showing the finished race car with a few changes. The sidepipes of the study are omitted, but the exhaust behind the engine and in front of the rear wing are added. The front splitter has also been adapted. The most striking change, however, concerns the rear wing.

Compared with the series-production Senna – as far as one can speak of series production here – it has grown considerably. The rear end is flatter than on all other McLaren models and adapts aerodynamically to the performance of the active rear wing. The design of the doors also speaks the language of aerodynamics to channel airflow optimally. McLaren topped the concept by the extremely low kerb weight: the GTR weighs just 1198 kilograms.

Engine and transmission

Compared to the base, Senna, the McLaren Senna GTR’s twin forced-induction 4.0-liter V8 engine delivers 25 horsepower more and a total torque of 800 Newton meters. This is mainly due to the elimination of the catalytic converters and new software. Power transmission is provided by the continuously variable seven-speed automatic transmission already familiar from the Senna.

To ensure good performance on the race track, the GTR also gets a modified double-wishbone suspension, slicks from Pirelli and a wheel design specially designed for racing. A Button mounted in the roof of the car brings the husky V8 to life, as with the street-legal Senna. The drivers of the Senna GTR take their seats in a reduced cockpit: Airbags, an infotainment system or even assistance systems are not available. Instead, there is a pit-to-car radio and two on-board cameras.

The McLaren Senna GTR was sold for 1.1 million British pounds (around 1.25 million euros) plus taxes. The exclusive hypercar was assembled by hand by McLaren experts in Woking, England.

The CSR2 McLaren Senna GTR

The 5 purple star McLaren can fit 135 Fusion parts. So far nothing special. The GTR should run 6.957s. To sum up, the McLaren is one of the faster cars in Tier 5.
