When McLaren named their special, limited run supercars the Senna, the expectations shot high up. McLaren won everyone over with the Senna and then the Senna GT and now it is the Senna GTR’s turn to become a reality. Only 75 of these Senna GTRs will be built and if you have guessed it, all of them have already been sold for about Rs 10 crores apiece.
The GTR is the racier version of the Senna GT and it develops 813bhp of power from the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 rather than the 789bhp it produced earlier. While being more powerful, since it is a track-toy, it will shed quite a bit of weight. Starting from the disappearance of the minimal upholstery it had, the infotainment screen will certainly be a casualty. But not the air-conditioning because it is a track-toy and not a racecar. So the active aero-aids might also get a little enhancement.
The adaptive suspension might get a little taut in its basic setting and it is expected to get a race-steering-wheel with integrated paddle-shifters. Pirelli racing slicks will be standard fitment and that, along with the racing brakes, should warrant fighter-pilot fitness for the drivers to push it to the limits. But then, aren’t excesses the basis of something as extravagant as this?
