McLaren's Decision To Use The "Senna" Name Is Rooted in The Desires and Attention-to-Detail of the Three-Time World Champion

McLaren’s Decision To Use The "Senna" Name Is Rooted in The Desires and Attention-to-Detail of the Three-Time World Champion

There’s a reason why Ayrton Senna is considered as one of the greatest race drivers in history

McLaren’s decision to use the “Senna” name on its latest supercar didn’t come without any curious reactions. The British automaker had adopted a simple alphanumeric naming strategy for its models, so it was surprising for the automaker to not only change that strategy but to use the name of arguably the greatest race car driver in history on its latest supercar creation. Why exactly did McLaren do it beyond the obvious reason that it wanted to pay tribute to the man who won three world championships for the team? The answer, according to McLaren, is in the details.

Eagle Eye: Bugatti Knows Everything About Every Chiron It Builds and Sells

Real-time monitoring helps keep the cars in top condition at all times

It’s not exactly on the level of the government keeping tabs on our daily lives, but it’s a little similar in some respects. Bugatti has an active remote service for the Chiron that allows the automaker to monitor a portion of technical data pertaining to the supercar’s real-time performance. The remote monitoring system isn’t that different from the one popularized by Tesla. It’s just that Bugatti had its own system in place when it launched the Veyron supercar almost ten years ago. More importantly, it still uses it today with the Chiron.

Meet the "L'Ultimo" - The Final Production Model of the Pagani Huayra All Dressed Up in Hamilton-Inspired Livery

Meet the "L’Ultimo" - The Final Production Model of the Pagani Huayra All Dressed Up in Hamilton-Inspired Livery

This is is for the Pagani Huayra Coupe

Six years after production of the Pagani Huayra started, the Italian supercar is all set to say goodbye with a final production model. Fittingly, the last-ever coupe version is saying adios with a bang, specifically in the form of a special edition model, called “L’Ultimo.” Like most special edition Paganis, the Huayra L’Ultimo is a one-off bespoke project that carries its own unique identity. In this case, the Huayra L’Ultimo pays homage to Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One race car.

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Spotted On The Nürburgring; Is Porsche's Record In Danger?

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Spotted On The Nürburgring; Is Porsche’s Record In Danger?

Will Lambo recapture the crown with a more extreme Aventador?

Remember the mean, camouflaged Lamborghini Aventador we spotted on the road last week? The Italian supercar is back into the wild, but this time around it was spotted on the Nurburgring track. It sure seems Lambo is readying something really hot and maybe even a new record for production cars on the German track. As we mentioned last week, this beefed-up version of the Aventador is supposed to sit atop the incredible SV. Word has it Lambo will use it to revive the Jota name, first used on a prototype and limited-edition version of the Miura and then on a limited-edition of the Diablo SE30.

Here's Your Chance To Own One of Only 50 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Editions

Here’s Your Chance To Own One of Only 50 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Editions

Prepare those checkbooks, ladies and gentlemen

The Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition represented the last of the LFAs that Lexus developed at the start of the decade. Only 50 Nurburgring Editions were made, and all 50 were scooped up in short order. The special edition’s limited status makes it hard to find one being put up for sale, let alone in an auction setting. It’s not impossible, though, because one of the 50 LFA Nurburgring Editions will return to the spotlight when it’s auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson event in Palm Beach, Florida this coming April.

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Caught Testing

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Caught Testing

Turning the Raging Bull up to 11

Get ready to bring the noise with full-throated Italian V-12 fury, because it looks like Lambo has something special brewing. That’s because the black and white camo’d test mule you see here is most likely a new top-trim Aventador dubbed the SV Jota, with hotness dripping from every winglet and crease.

The SV Jota name is plucked from Lambo’s past, specifically a limited-run edition of the Miura, which offered up racing-inspired modifications like weight reduction, stiffer suspension pieces, new aero bits, and extra muscle. We’re not sure how many Aventador SV Jotas will be see the light of day, but either way, every one of ‘em is most likely already completely sold out.

Regardless, look for a heady dose of V-12 power in the middle of the machine, possibly with figures as high as 800 ponies. The 0-to-60 mph should happen in the mid-2-second range, while top speed will be in excess of 220 mph. As a reference, the standard Lamborghini Aventador produces around 690 horsepower, while more modern versions like the Aventador S make 730 horsepower.

The SV Jota will also sport an enormous wing in the rear, plus a reworked exhaust system. Lambo will probably kick things off with this coupe hardtop version spotted here, followed later by a Roadster model.

Expect a debut some time this summer or fall.

Is Stefan Winkelmann's Lack of Interest in a Chiron Top Speed Run Proof He's Not Fit to Run Bugatti?

Is Stefan Winkelmann’s Lack of Interest in a Chiron Top Speed Run Proof He’s Not Fit to Run Bugatti?

Or maybe it’s because the Chiron can’t beat the Koenigsegg Agera RS...

2018 was supposed to be the year that Bugatti finally unleashed the Chiron on an open race track to see how fast it can really go. That was the plan when the French automaker unveiled the hypercar in 2016. But, now that we’re here, it looks like Bugatti is having a change of heart. There’s a good chance that we won’t see the Chiron do a top speed run this year. Worse, we may not even get to see it at all because, according to new Bugatti CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, the top speed test is no longer “a priority” for Bugatti.

Don’t Bother Looking For a McLaren Senna GTR Because They’re All Sold Out

All 75 units now have owners

The McLaren Senna GTR is a shining example of what happens when a company attains the pinnacle of automotive engineering. To say that it’s one of the most impressive track-only vehicles in the world is an understatement. Apparently, people have been so impressed with the Senna GTR that over 150 of them have expressed interest in paying the £1 million price ($1.4 million) for the track-day speedster. Unfortunately, McLaren only plans to build half of that total, and as expected, all 75 units of the Senna GTR are now accounted for.
