McLaren Senna exposes exotic carbon fiber body

McLaren Senna exposes exotic carbon fiber body

The McLaren Senna is at the pinnacle of McLaren’s hyper-cars and you can read about the car here. Only 500 customers will be able to experience the fury of the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that pushes out 789bhp and 800Nm of torque. 

Now one of those very very rich and lucky customers has asked for all the lovely carbon fiber wrapping around the body to be left exposed and McLaren will show off the car at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The exposed CF is one of the five themes that MSO personalization department is offering and let us tell you, it’s not an easy task. Comprising 67 parts, the full carbon fiber body takes almost 1000 hours to polish and refine to the level shown here. And extra care was required to apply the matte S and Senna logos. This is the result of a special process that sees the design embedded into the carbon fiber panel.

The carbon theme of the car doesn't end there. The wheels, too, are carbon fiber, albeit together with forged aluminum. McLaren says the aluminum-carbon hybrid wheel is 10 percent lighter than the stock aluminum wheels fitted to the Senna. The reduction in unsprung mass results in a 10-15 percent reduction in rotating inertia, improving acceleration, braking and steering responses.

How much do you expect to pay for a similar spec Senna? Let’s just say a lot money. Very fast, very exclusive and wrapped only in the most exotic materials, this car is sure to go down in the history books.
