In the late 1960’s, the McLaren team was unstoppable in Can-Am, a North American race series with very few regulations, that saw some of the most extreme designs in motorsports history. The 1969 season was all about the orange McLaren Can-Am cars, with the McLaren M8B starting on pole and winning all 11 races that season (three in Canada, and eight in the U.S.). To pay homage to the all-conquering M8B, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) built a limited run of just three “street legal” Senna GTR’s, named the Senna Can-Am.
The McLaren Senna is, without a doubt, one of the most extreme creations to roll out of any automotive production line. From its copious amount of power to an aggressive and aerodynamic design, the Senna is a tour de force. After launching the Senna and dropping jaws, the Senna GTR was released as a race-ready track-only version. If you wanted to experience the Senna GTR on the road, you couldn’t. That is, until the Senna Can-Am. With just three examples produced, the Can-Am is the rarest of all Senna variants, and a love letter to the McLaren M8B race car.

The Can-Am received a plethora of unique features that set it apart from the standard road going Senna. Built on the Senna GTR’s track-only chassis, it received an increase of 25hp to match the GTR’s 814hp. In reference to the all-conquering M8B, Bruce McLaren’s signature and #4 racing number adorn one side of the heritage orange bodywork, while Denny Hulme’s signature and #5 racing number appear on the opposite side, along with vintage McLaren Cars and Speedy Kiwi logos.
The rear air brake is finished in liquid silver with white end plates, again in homage to the original M8B ace car. Other unique details include a 24 carat gold heat shield, distinctive wheels, four exhaust pipes exiting the tail end, a louvered fender design, and dedicated badging notating this car as Can Am #1 of the three produced.
Inside, the cockpit features bespoke black Alcantara trim with a Can-Am logo embroidered into the seat headrests, bespoke paint on the extended sills with details about the original race car’s victories, a black anodized accelerator pedal with the Can-Am Logo, liquid silver door struts, orange door pull straps, and a badge with the car’s production number.
Never tracked, never driven in the rain, and completely wrapped in clear paint protection film (PPF), this sensational hypercar presents a unique opportunity to purchase the first of the three Senna Can-Am street cars. The rarest of all McLaren Senna production, and a bona fide investment, this is a track-proven weapon that can be legally piloted to any event nationwide.
