Expect to see it in 2019

Shortly after the radical McLaren Senna came out, the British firm confirmed that a GTR version is underway. We’ve already seen the car in the form of a production-ready concept, so its design is far from a mystery, but a bunch of spy shots we just received from our paparazzi hint that an official unveiling will take place soon.

Mild Changes for Now

The prototype car doesn’t look entirely ready to hit the auto shows.

While it has a few extras compared to the standard Senna, it lacks some of the aggressive aero features seen on the Senna GTR Concept.

For instance, the massive diffuser that extends well beyond the rear fascia is missing here as the test car features the same unit as the standard supercar. On the other hand, the camouflaged racer has new side skirts that look more aggressive than the Senna’s and we can see a new opening on the fender, just above the wheel arch.

What’s Under the Hood?

McLaren already confirmed that the track-only car will feature the same twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 as the standard Senna.

However, the Brits said that output will increase to "at least" 814 horsepower compared to the 789-horsepower rating of the regular supercar.

Upgrades will also include a race-spec transmission, a revised suspension system, and extra downforce from the aero package.

Pricing and Production

McLaren will build only 75 units of the McLaren Senna GTR.

As usual, only customers who already purchased the Senna will have access to this supercar. With the regular Senna priced from around $1.3 million, the Senna GTR could cost close to $2 million. Don’t worry about raising the money; it’s probably already sold out. The production car will likely debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
