Joins a collection that already includes three McLaren supercars

Unveiled more than six months ago, the radical McLaren Senna is finally meeting its first customers. The British firm just shipped its first U.S.-spec example, which landed with Michael Fux, an entrepreneur, philanthropist and renowned car collector from New York City. An owner of three other McLaren sports cars, Fux ordered a heavily customized Senna that sports a bespoke color that bears his own name. Pretty fancy, huh?

The supercar is wrapped in a bright shade of emerald green, which McLaren named Fux Green. While it’s cool to see a McLaren in a different color than black, red or blue, the really cool thing here is that the transparent paint allows the carbon-fiber body to shine through. Yes, this Senna features the optional exposed carbon shell, which includes 67 parts that take almost 1,000 hours to produce and put together.

But the list of bespoke McLaren Special Operations (MSO) features doesn’t stop here. The supercar is also fitted with ball-polished wheels and blue and red center locking nuts. The interior borrows the emerald green theme from the exterior, with the same Fux Green used to dress the gloss carbon-fiber trim, the door struts, and the rear-view mirror. The dash, seats, door panels, and steering wheel are wrapped in bright white leather for a striking contrast, complemented by green stitching. Green "MSO" logos on the white headrests complete the look.

As a brief reminder, the Senna gets its juice from a twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 that churns a neck-breaking 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The 2,600-pound supercar needs only 2.7 seconds to hit 60 mph, to go with a top speed of 211 mph.

The Senna is Fux’s fourth McLaren, joining two 12C models and a 720S. The latter is also finished in a paint that bears the owner’s name, called Fux Fuchsia, and a bright white interior. The sports car was displayed on the Concept Car Lawn at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The emerald green Senna will be on display at The Quail during Monterey Car Week on August 24th. It might just be your only chance to see it in the metal.

You see me now ... 1st Mclaren Senna delivered to US. #michaelfux #fuxwithyaboy @mclarenauto

Press release

The first North American designation of McLaren’s most extreme road car ever built, the McLaren Senna, has been delivered to customer Michael Fux in New York City. An entrepreneur, philanthropist and renowned car collector known for his eclectic taste, Mr. Fux’s Senna features an extensive list of bespoke content specified through McLaren Special Operations (MSO).

Perhaps most significant is the Full Visual Carbon Fibre Body, tinted in a custom emerald green colour known as “Fux Green.” Comprising 67 parts, the full body set takes almost 1,000 hours to produce. Blue and red wheel centre lock nuts and ball polished wheels complete the exterior, while the body colour is carried through to the interior, with “Fux Green” Tinted Carbon in Gloss Finish, complimented by a bright white leather facia, seats, door uppers, and steering wheel, with green contrast stitching on the seats and steering wheel. The headliner remains in Carbon Black Alcantara®, while the door struts and rear-view mirror are painted in green.

“We’re pleased to be here to officially deliver the first McLaren Senna in the North American market,” said Tony Joseph, President, McLaren North America. “This is such a special car – designed and engineered to be the ultimate road-legal track car ever produced by McLaren. We know that owners can’t wait to get their cars on the circuit, and we’re eager for them to get behind the wheel.”

Bearing the name of legendary Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, the newest family member to the Ultimate Series was developed to be the most responsive and engaging road-legal McLaren ever, offering the purest connection between the driver and car. Though the engine specs are impressive – a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 789bhp and 590 lb ft torque for 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and 0—124mph in a blistering 6.8 seconds—the aerodynamics are arguably most note worthy on the McLaren Senna. The active front aero blades and an active rear wing produce up to 1,763.7lbs of downforce, and are supported by the aggressive, form-follows-function design of the Senna in which aerodynamic performance was prioritized above visual appearance.

As with all McLaren road cars, the McLaren Senna features a carbon “tub”—the Monocage II, which contributes to the lightest dry weight of 2,641lbs, making the McLaren Senna the lightest McLaren since the iconic F1. The RaceActive Chassis Control II suspension ensures maximum stability under heavy braking, high-speed cornering and intense acceleration, while the next-generation carbon ceramic, motorsport-derived brakes and bespoke Pirelli P Zero ™ Trofeo R tires deliver a more connected driving experience and quicker lap times.

The “Fux Green” McLaren Senna joins a bespoke 720S that is also in Mr. Fux’s collection. Noted for its bright white interior and custom fuchsia exterior color known as “Fux Fuchsia” – Mr. Fux’s 720S made a splash on the Concept Car Lawn at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. These supercars join his other McLarens – a 12C in McLaren Orange and a 12C Spider in bespoke purple.

The McLaren Senna owned by Mr. Fux will be on display at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering during Monterey Car Week on August 24th.
