Expressions of interest will
be taken at the Geneva Show and thereafter, with exact technical details of the
McLaren Senna GTR confirmed later this year. Based around the same carbon fibre
Monocage III structure as the McLaren Senna to ensure the core strength and
rigidity needed for a top-flight track car, the McLaren Senna GTR will be

With more power and greater torque from the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged
V8 engine than the 800PS and 800Nm developed in the road car – horsepower will
increase to at least 825PS – the car will be faster than the ‘standard’ model
in a straight line. The additional benefit of a race-style transmission,
revised double wishbone suspension and Pirelli slick tyres – together with up
to 1,000kg of downforce – will ensure that the McLaren Senna GTR will also post
the quickest McLaren circuit lap times outside Formula 1.
