Can’t Afford a McLaren Senna? Here’s a cool Lego you can buy
Watch the McLaren P1 Tickle Its Own Top Speed
Although its almost six years old at this point, the 2014 McLaren P1 is still an absolute beast. As one of the original members of the hybrid hypercar holy trinity, the P1’s spaceship-like demeanor commands respect no matter what the crowd may be. Properly motivated, this English monster can throw itself at the horizon with shocking alacrity, as evidenced by this new top speed run that recently posted to YouTube.
Teaser Image And Video Preview a New 2019 McLaren 600LT
It’s been less than a month since McLaren unveiled its latest supercar, the 720S Spider, and the British firm announced the arrival of a new vehicle. This time around it’s based on the 600LT, itself a higher performance variant of the570S. The teasers don’t reveal much, but we’re probably looking at the convertible version of the 600LT.
Car for Sale: 2018 McLaren Senna With Just 14 Miles on the Clock
McLaren only built 500 Sennas and, as you’d expect, they’re all gone. As part of the company’s Ultimate Series of models, you had to be invited to buy one but, if none of the invitations found their way into your mailbox, now you’ve got a chance to buy one with delivery mileage onboard. The catch? You could have a 5,000+ square-foot house in Florida for the same kind of money.
Unveiled to the general public at last year’s Geneva Auto Show, the Senna is an extreme machine. It’s got to be, though, when you factor in its name, that of the late great Ayrton Senna, one of the best drivers to ever drive in the Formula 1 World Championship. It’s also very rare and the 500th example sold at auction for almost $3 million. Now, though, there’s one up for grabs for considerably less, and it’s just as pristine. If you’re a multi-millionaire, you could say this is a real bargain since prices will only go up for these things in the next few years.
The 2020 McLaren Speedtail Becomes Even More Unique With Three Special Design Collections
We’ve already admired the new, high-speed McLaren Speedtail at recent auto shows, but owners are getting ready to customize their expensive supercars. Just like the P1, each Speedtail will be unique. To enable buyers to customize their vehicles even more, McLaren just launched three new design collections called Colours & Materials Inspiration Story.
Envisioned by the skilled folks at McLaren Special Operations, these themes add unique and expensive features inside and out. The three themes are called Urbane, Visionary, and Dynamic, and each of them are inspired by specific themes. Let’s have a closer look.
2019 McLaren P1 GTR by McLaren Special Operations
A brand-new McLaren P1 GTR has been unveiled and, suitably, it wears the Marlboro livery that once covered the glorious McLaren-Honda MP4/4 that carried Senna to his first world champion crown 30 years ago during arguably the most dominant season ever for Team McLaren.
This new P1 GTR is the result of three years of intense work by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) who’ve worked in close partnership with the customer that requested this one-off machine. It features a more aggressive aero package than the standard P1 GTR, more power thanks to some tweaks to the engine, as well as a bespoke interior with seats borrowed from the McLaren Senna.
McLaren Teases a Lego Champions Senna in London Toy Store: Video
Lego’s Speed Champions collection comprises some of the world’s most exotic machinery such as the Le Mans-winning Porsche 919, the Bugatti Chiron or the Ferrari LaFerrari. Now, a new hypercar is poised to join the lineup of the construction toy manufacturer’s collection. It’s McLaren’s ludicrous Senna, and it won’t be released until after Christmas, but McLaren already released the first teaser video.

It’s proving the point that, if you want, you can build hype for just about anything.
2020 McLaren Senna GTR
The McLaren Senna is an upcoming, track-only variant of the radical Senna supercar. Named after famed F1 driver Ayrton Senna, the supercar will also pay tribute to the iconic F1 GTR in race-spec trim. Previewed by the Senna GTR Concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, the track-bound supercar will arrive in production form in 2019.
McLaren is already testing the Senna GTR, and our paparazzi spotted the car a couple of times on the track. The supercar is still camouflaged though, and it appears that it’s still missing important parts from its aerodynamic package. But the British firm unveiled a few details about the track-only vehicle, and we will discuss them in the speculative review below.
We Caught the McLaren Senna GTR Prototype, but It’s Missing a Few Important Pieces

McLaren Unveils Speedtail Prototype, Names It "Albert"
Some 25 years after the McLaren F1 burst into the scene, it’s one true successor, the McLaren Speedtail has finally arrived. Ok, so the production Speedway isn’t here yet, but McLaren has unveiled the first hybrid powertrain prototype of the Speedtail, complete with an actual name that pays homage to the same street in which its predecessor, the F1, was conceived. The Speedtail prototype will no longer use its “MVY02” internal designation. Instead, we should all get used to calling it “Albert.”

McLaren Teams With Belstaff for New Fashion Line
McLaren Automotive is no stranger to collaborations with companies from the fashion world, counting Michael Kors, Kimoa, and Le Coq Sportif as fashion brands that it has partnered with in various capacities in the past. Today, the British automaker is adding another brand to that list with the launch of the Belstaff x McLaren Collection in the U.K., Europe, and the U.S. The new fashion collection is the result of the automaker’s new partnership with Belstaff, one of the U.K.’s oldest and famous fashion brands.

The Belstaff x McLaren Collection is available to buy from selected McLaren Automotive retailers worldwide, Belstaff’s global stores and official online sites, as well as selected retail partners.
2019 McLaren Speedtail
The McLaren Speedtail is the latest iteration of the Ultimate Series. Although it follows the Senna, it actually replaced the P1, the spiritual successor of the F1. But unlike the P1, the Speedtail features a three-seat layout with a center-mounted drivers seat, just like the F1. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain, it’s the fastest, most powerful, and most aerodynamic McLaren built to date!
Dubbed a Hyper-GT and previously referred to as the BP23, the Speedtail is somewhat of a new concept from McLaren. While it has the output of a hypercar, it looks more like a super-streamline vehicle than a race-inspired supercar and sports a luxurious interior packed with innovative materials. Arguably the coolest thing about it is the central driving seat, a feature borrowed from the iconic F1. It’s the ultimate McLaren road car!

16 Astonishing Facts About The New McLaren Speedtail Hyper-GT
Facts about the new McLaren Speedtail will reveal just how much of a technological marvel the new car really is. It is like the opposite of the Senna, which is all about downforce, cornering, and track abilities. The Speedatail, also known as the Hyper-GT, is a long distance cruiser made to make impressive speed runs, create a luxurious ambiance for its three occupants, and be the fastest thing on the road. Previously, we have seen it in the BP23 prototype guise. Now, however, McLaren delivered something extraordinary - a true McLaren F1 successor. At least a spiritual successor as this one doesn’t have a naturally aspirated V-12, and it is built of materials so advanced that the F1 feels like a relic in comparison.
Nevertheless, the looks of the Speedtail just reveal how dedicated designers were to creating the fastest car possible. No wonder it looks a bit like a Jaguar XJ220, or a bit like a puffed up Volkswagen XL1.
