McLaren Senna Carbon Theme – got carbon-fibre?

There's a unique Senna Carbon Theme coming to Geneva, prepared in collaboration with McLaren Special Operations (MSO), and best of all, it's the first out of a series of five such unique models.

Chief among them is the Carbon Theme.

The McLaren Senna "Carbon Theme" makes its public debut next week at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show, and Mclaren says there will be an additional surprise at its press conference on Tuesday morning. The Memphis Red and Vega Blue satin finish centre lock wheel nuts fitted to respectively the left- and right-hand sides of the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme auto are available now to MSO Bespoke order. The glossy black weave is accentuated with Solar Yellow and Laurel Green detailing, as a nod to F1 Legend Ayrton Senna's helmet livery and home country of Brazil. The lashings of carbon fibre - some 67 new parts - took some 1,000 hours to make, and the yellow paint a further 250 hours. Without a tyre fitted, the hub weighs just 7.5kg, a 10 percent saving on the standard wheel.

There's a Senna "S" on each head restraint, and the same logo is repeated in satin clear-finished carbon fibre, inset into the gloss-finished end plates of the rear wing, and in a complete Senna brand over the front left wheel-arch. The McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is one of five themes* developed by MSO for a vehicle that has been the centre of attention since the first images were released in December. There's also the "Senna" lettering on the right front fender. A "standard" Senna will set a person back £750,000 (about $1 million) and the Carbon Theme adds another £300,000 (about $410,000) to the total. The wheels will be a dealer-fit option, available in both diamond-cut and shadowy "Stealth" colouring.

Ansar Ali, Managing Director, McLaren Special Operations, said: "With the vehicle having generated so much interest since its unveiling in December, we knew we needed to produce something very special in order to showcase the unique talents of McLaren Special Operations".

McLaren will bring its hardcore, 789-horsepower Senna road vehicle to the Geneva Motor Show, and all 500 examples are already spoken for.
