With a carbon fibre monocoque, MonoCage III, for rigidity and light weight, the Senna is powered by a modified version of McLaren’s twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the M840TR, which delivers 789bhp to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Stunning though these figures are the real benefits are gained from the superb aerodynamics.

Straight from Formula 1 the double element diffuser is fed by front and side air intakes and air flow is guided mini canards at the front with louvres in the rear. The large adjustable double element, electronically operated rear wing will also act as an airbrake.

The Senna uses the latest generation of Brembo’s carbon ceramic brakes with three and a half times better thermal conductivity enabling the brake discs to be smaller and lighter. They fit inside new lightweight centre lock alloy wheels allied to McLaren’s hydraulic RaceActive Chassis Control II suspension.

The interior is well appointed though stripped back to save weight and consists mostly of exposed, polished carbon fibre with an Alcantara dash top and seat covering, behind the seats there is space for two helmets and race suits, reflecting track the focused design.

Taylor And Crawley
Taylor and Crawley was founded in 1937 and sold Mercedes-Benz and Alfa Romeo cars from their Mayfair premises. After the war, they became the UK Mercedes-Benz importers and main agents before importing Maseratis and then becoming Alfa Romeo dealers. Scion of the Taylor family, son Michael, was a successful racing driver in the 1950s, being a factory Lotus sports car driver eventually graduating to Grands Prix before his career was cut short by car failure in the tragic Belgium Grand Prix at Spa in 1960. David Clark, already an established purveyor of sports and racing cars, was a friend of Michael Taylor and acquired the company in the 1980s when Michael retired. Since then the company has been prominent in the Historic car market, especially with competition cars.
