The McLaren Senna GTR ups the track‑focused madness at Geneva
If like us you saw the Senna upon its reveal and thought “Nah, that’s not quite single-minded and hardcore enough”, then perhaps McLaren’s big reveal at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show will be right up your street.
Given the Senna is obviously a bit of a soft touch with its meagre 800hp and sub-1,000kg of downforce, the GTR is McLaren’s answer to your cries for even more uncompromising track performance.
So the slick-shod, 1,000kg of downforce-capable 825hp GTR ups the ante, if all joking aside, it wasn’t sky-high with the already pretty berserk Senna road car. A "race prepared" transmission completes the track-only package.
As such it won’t be legal or appropriate for road use (the standard car is the former, if not the latter for some), but it will be, so McLaren says, the fastest car to come out of Woking round a track (bar F1 cars). Yes, quicker than a P1 GTR.
We reckon a nice big slab of splitter an enormous diffuser, side-exit pipes and that single-prong wing bring this thing to life a bit aesthetically. That it all does so on track goes without saying. If you're wanting this latest most hardcore slice of McLaren madness, get in quick. Only 75 are being built. Comparison test anyone?
