McLaren Senna Carbon Theme – got carbon-fibre?

In fact, McLaren says that this new Senna's Solar Yellow and Laurel Green detailing echoes the helmet livery of legendary F1 driver and namesake for this auto, Ayrton Senna. 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 car's body is covered in 67 Visual Carbon Fiber parts, which took nearly 1,000 hours to produce.

McLaren says it will also offer the ultra-lightweight MSO 7-Spoke Hybrid Carbon Fiber wheels as an option to Senna customers.

The McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is one of five themes developed by MSO for the vehicle - the other four will be digitally revealed at the Geneva show to inspire buyers of the auto as they spec their engineering dream machine.

The Visual Carbon Fibre exterior is the most obvious individual feature of the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme by MSO. Both seats feature a Senna "S" on the headrest, with the same detail repeated on the end plates of the rear wing.

In its press release introducing the Carbon Black Senna, McLaren also hinted at something special at the Geneva Motor Show.

The show auto will also introduce a new McLaren Senna wheel option - a clear-finished MSO carbon-fibre rim with centre-locked forged aluminium hub and spokes in either diamond-cut or stealth finish. McLaren has also promised a "surprise announcement".

The McLaren Senna is at the pinnacle of McLaren's hyper-cars and you can read about the auto here. The reduction in unsprung mass results in a 10-15 percent reduction in rotating inertia, improving acceleration, braking and steering responses. The wheels will be a dealer-fit option, available in both diamond-cut and shadowy "Stealth" colouring. McLaren claims that it's made up of 67 special parts.

Just 500 examples will be hand-built at the McLaren production centre in Woking, in a process that takes close to 300 hours for each auto - which is why they cost a cool £750 000 (R12.2 million) each - and yes, they're all spoken for. They will be built by hand over 300 hours at McLaren's Woking factory.
