Say Hello To The McLaren Senna GTR: The Ultimate Track Weapon

McLaren Senna GTR Concept

The rumours were true, then: McLaren is going to make an even faster, track-only version of the Senna. It wasn't any regular run-of-the-mill production auto from the British automaker, but rather was limited to only 500 units - all of which are sold out - with the intention of setting fast lap times.

The McLaren Senna GTR Concept storms its way into the Geneva Motor Show with one very bold claim attached to it: Outside of the British company's Formula One cars, this $1.4-million-dollar supercar is the fastest way around a racetrack in a auto with the McLaren badge on it.

McLaren is pitching the Senna as a vehicle for the circuit first and foremost, rather than a road-based supercar. The Senna GTR also rides on a special set of lightweight, 11-spoke alloy wheels. For the time being, it remains a concept vehicle.

Obvious changes to the Senna GTR include the addition of an aerodynamic package that includes a huge front splitter, a revised rear deck and the addition of a larger rear diffuser than that on the road auto.

It's understood the GTR was prioritised to appease customers who missed out on the initial batch of Sennas and also due to the greater financial returns the project would offer over developing a GTE race auto to the current rules.

Those fenders are wider than before, stretched to accommodate a broader track at both ends of the auto.

This Senna wears very little in the way of paint - the only smatterings of colour on the unpainted carbon-fibre bodywork are found on the sills, rear wing and active aero blades at the front, all finished in bright yellow.

Much like the "tamer" road auto, the Senna GTR's exterior design will continue to split opinons. "It's the fastest road-legal track vehicle, and it lets us take things like light weight and huge downforce to push boundaries".

For now, McLaren has yet to reveal the exact details of the 4.0-liter biturbo V8. Together with the power boost comes a new "race-style" transmission.

Despite its track-focused intentions, the McLaren Senna GTR concept does not preview a McLaren entry into the World Endurance Championship, the company confirmed. Underneath, it will also have improved handling thanks to a revised double wishbone suspension setup.

The third model in McLaren's GTR history - following the original McLaren F1 GTR and hybrid-powered P1 GTR - is limited to 75 examples likely to go to the brand's most loyal customers.
