In 2019 the McLaren senna prototype review: god’s circle is not close to anything?


That night, I was lying in bed, unable to sleep, replaying a circle in my head again and again. Three corners of the silverstone international circuit in northamptonshire have changed everything. Standards are smashed and benchmarks set aside. The edges of the envelope become blurred lines in the distance. For more than 30 years, I’ve been selling road racing on the track, but anything I’ve ever driven is close to the majestic McLaren.
The Abbey enters the farm curve, which is the right and left order of a grand F1 restoration area just past silverstone. A fifth of a speed is 150 miles per hour. It’s hard to brake when you start on the left side of the road, and then back to the fourth brake. Turn in early and return the gas before the vertex. Understeer is lightly built. 100 miles per hour. The outer edge of the orbit rushes into the peripheral vision. Don’t carry! Keep looking at the eyes behind the corner – find the cut point for the left-handed. There! Rolling the wrist, the orange McLare calmly moves at 120 miles per hour and pushes the short chute down to the right side of the village.
Stowe, a right user, set up a hungry curb at Hangar’s end with a tight exit. At 170 miles per hour, the moving light is in the blue area. And so on… And so on… Synaptic firing, suspected pause, time and distance breakdown. Now! Step on the brake pedal as much as possible. Ooof! Fasten your seat belts at six. In the fourth. Damn it! This could have been deeper and faster to get to the top. Easily… Easy…… To the left side of the road, open the steering, full throttle. Bellows and thrust, at work 789 HP.
Direction change, intermediate angular velocity, brake. Monasteries, farm curves, stowe; In addition to the streets of ferrari, porsche, lamborghini and mercedes-benz, McLaren has three more corners to show. Like the name of the legendary F1 driver, it is entirely on another level.
After Simon’s launch earlier this year, we detailed the technical highlights of senna, but just a review: it was based on 720S, but lost 200 pounds. Type of 4.0 -litre twin turbo V8 engine at a speed of 7850 horsepower at 7250 RPM and 590 pounds/feet (5500 r/min to 6700 r/min), between the adoption of the new air inlet plenum chamber and carbon fibre, the unique light CAM and piston, allowing higher combustion pressure and temperature of the new sensor, and two high flow pump. McLane claims that senna will reach 60 miles per hour in about 2.5 seconds, 124 MPH in 6.8 seconds, and a quarter of a mile in 10 seconds. The maximum speed limit is 211 MPH.
Senna’s hydraulic modulation, computer control, highly adjustable suspension is the evolution of the Settings used on P1, and can independently control the rolling and heave movement. The braking system is also based on the braking system of P1, but the new 15.4-inch ccm-r carbon ceramic rotor is completely new. The tyres are specially developed Pirelli P Zero Trofeo Rs, the front is 245/35R19, and the rear is 315/30r20.
It may be ready for le mans, but senna is a legitimate road racing car. It is available for cruise control, parking sensors and ramp assist, anti-lock braking and traction control. The same is true of electric Windows and backup cameras. With navigation and audio, it is controlled through the 8.0-inch high-resolution touch screen, which is also the interface of the McLare variable drift control system. The interior is functional, but beautifully finished, with Alcantara and structural carbon fiber. Solid engine installation means that noise and vibration has more than 720 s, but when you arrive, you can put the senna driver on the track day, and would not be sweating and sprain, ear and back pain.

Make it light and strong. This is a fast formula as old as a car. The added combination of Senna is the art and science of applying aerodynamics in the 21st century. Headlamps in possession of an aviation blade, a flank inserted into the air at the back of the car, a body design and aerodynamic floor design to optimize the aerodynamic efficiency, common to produce 155 miles an hour under the incredible 1764 pounds of pressure.
The smart part is that the blades and wings are controlled by the computer, changing their Angle of attack to change the amount and distribution of pressure. More than 155 miles per hour, they will gradually cut to reduce resistance, so that the senna 211 miles per hour (occurred in sixth gear, rather than 7), while keeping the pressure constant at 1764 pounds. When the brake is pressed, the blade is released under pressure to compensate for the weight transfer on the front axle, while the wing is almost vertically jammed, which ACTS as a brake and increases the rear load.
It’s not obvious from behind the wheel. What you know is strong grip and stability through high speed turns and strong braking. McLaren’s speed is quite different from that of other cars, even for ferrari’s 488 Pista. The omnipresent downward pressure makes it feel as if it is being restrained by the hand of god. However, senna can dance through the slower corners, kick the accelerator sideways, and quickly grab a pair of relative locks. This is intimate and direct, but not intimidating. It not only encourages you to explore your limits as a driver. It also recalibrates them.
Mr McLaren says senna intends to be the most exciting street legal car you can drive on the track. In the developed VP736 Silverstone, before you start production next month, in order to eventually set up a small part of the calibration and test and Senna validation prototype, one is obvious: none of the 500 customers to hand over $1 million because they own the best part of the Senna will require them to return a penny.
McLaren senna GTR.
One step away
McLaren is faster at the racetrack, even faster than P1, until now McLaren’s alpha-dog supercar. McLaren have crush the silverstone data: a quarter through the ground farm curve, senna’s speed is faster than the speed of a mile per hour, at the time of entering stowe Angle, hangar at the end of the straight line speed for 9 miles per hour. It can hold the key right-handed brake at 82 feet.
But there are McLaren’s customers who want more, says Dan parry Williams, director of engineering design at McLaren Auotmotive. So, like P1, there will be a GTR version dedicated to the racetrack. Its weight is 70 to 110 pounds lighter than the road to senna, which is more powerful, 813 horsepower, more accurate, and more stressful. It costs about $75 to build, and the U.S. price is about $1.4 million, plus tax. Everyone would say that she could easily have sold twice as much.
