The car without gold chrome costs $1.5 million alone.
It’s no surprise that one of McLaren’s most prized supercars is named after F1 legend Ayrton Senna. After all, the fearless Brazilian was perhaps the finest racer of his generation, having won three world championships while driving a McLaren. As a result, the Senna is as unique as the iconic racer that inspired it. While almost every super-rare McLaren Senna had a carbon fibre exterior, a video published on Saturday revealed the first of its kind to show off a chrome gold body that would have luxury car lovers salivating.
YouTube website The TFJJ boasts a reputation for showing off supercars in the best light possible. Even in the dark, these photographers manage to make their subjects stand out among the other four-wheelers on the road in Knightsbridge, London. The gull-wing doors are wide open, allowing spectators to see inside, even the driver’s side. Everything is up to date, if a little sparse. The rest of the dash is devoid of anything save digital gauges and a flatscreen interface. McLaren designed this Senna to race, not simply to look at.
Despite generating a muted roar around the streets of London after hours, the chrome gold bodywork emits a sumptuous atmosphere, forcing other motorists to bask in the glory of this McLaren. But we can tell Senna is agitated, as he plods through at city speeds that are further slowed by traffic congestion. The impatient howl of the McLaren revving up to show the world what this machine is actually made of is captured in one alley shot.
Senna V8 Delivers 789 HP
This Senna is one street-legal show pony ready to show off its prowess as a mean, mechanical thoroughbred, especially when illuminated by London’s comparatively dim headlights. With a 4.0-liter 789-hp V8 engine and a seven-speed manual transmission, this McLaren can transfer all of that power to the rear wheels and reach 60 mph in 2.7 seconds from a standstill.
It undoubtedly helps to have an aerodynamic design made with materials that make the automobile appear to be lighter than it is.
Price Likely More Than $1.5M
A McLaren Senna made of carbon fibre costs around $1.5 million. However, with all of the gold chrome on this variant, the price will almost certainly be far more. How much is it? Calculate the amount of ounces of gold needed for the exterior, then multiply by the ever-changing gold market price, which is now at $1,600 per ounce. But, as every upper-crust supercar owner will tell you, you can’t afford one if you have to beg.
