Unveiled to the world in late 2017, the McLaren Senna is still in production as of 2020. However, all 500 units of the track-ready supercar have been sold long before it made its public debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. If you missed it and you have at least $1 million to spend, a bespoke example fitted with optional equipment worth over $360,000 will go under the hammed at RM Sotheby’s Arizona auction on January 22, 2021. What makes it special and how much could it cost? Let’s find out.
The McLaren Senna is already a bespoke supercar based on its construction and the amount of work it goes into making one and the British company offers a long list of options to go with it. But you can also request extra equipment and features via the MSO division and that’s exactly what the owner of this car did.
The 95th Senna produced, this car was delivered to Beverly Hulls McLaren in September 2018 with a Visual Carbon Fiber body (that’s McLaren talk for an exposed carbon finish) with a Burton Blue tint. It also features matching blue brake calipers, blue highlights in the front bumper and on the rear wing, and a glass panel in the rear bulkhead for improved visibility.
The Burton Blue theme trickles inside the cabin through matching door struts, inlays, stitching, and harnesses. Like in most Senna supercars, everything is either carbon-fiber or wrapped in Alcantara, but you’ll also find some leather inserts here and there. The door panels are fitted with tinted panels of inset Gorilla Glass. There’s also a blue-tinted “Senna” badge on the dashboard and a numbered plate that says it’s the 95th of 500 Sennas built.
The drivetrain is stock, so the twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 packs the usual 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The Senna hits 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 211 mph.
|Transmission||Dual-clutch, seven-speed transmission|
|0 to 60 mph||2.7 seconds|
|Top Speed||211 mph|
The supercar also comes with full exterior paint protection regimen applied by Solar Transmission Management of Los Angeles, California, and proof of annual service from August 2019 and September 2020, indicating 229 and 410 miles, respectively. At the time of this listing, the supercar was driven for only 450 miles, which means it’s almost brand-new.
How much does it cost? RM Sotheby’s estimates that the supercar will cross the auction block for $1 to $1.3 million. Given that the Senna was priced from almost $1 million when new and that this specific example is fitted with $360,000 worth of options, a sales estimate of up to $1.3 million isn’t all that bad. Supercars like this tend to become a lot more expensive over time and chances to find one for less than $1 million in mint condition are extremely slim.
