When McLaren first came out as limited-run mid-engined sports car, it packed a powerful engine, stunning design and most track-focused vehicle we had ever seen from the automaker. McLaren Beverly Hills commissioned three special McLaren Senna XP models as a tribute to F1 legend Ayrton Senna. For those who are familiar with McLaren’s nomenclature with respect to test mules will know that “XP” means “Experimental Prototype”. All 500 units of road-going McLaren Senna were already spoken for by buyers. However, US based McLaren’s dealership managed to convince McLaren Special Operations to turn three Senna models into customer cars.
These three models were worked by McLaren Special Operations and the first one is dubbed as “The Home Victory”. It wears Brazilian flag which celebrates Senna’s win at the 1991 Brazilian Grand Prix where he had to drive part of the race with car being struck in sixth gear. The second version of McLaren Senna XP is “The Master of Monaco” which celebrates Senna’s six iconic victories at the Monaco Grand Prix. Exterior of the model wears white and red flag of Monaco. Lastly, there is “The Lap of the Gods”. It pays tribute to Senna’s victory at the 1993 European Grand Prix. At this race, he managed to move from fifth position to first by the end of first lap despite horrendous rainy conditions.
Apart from special exterior of McLaren Senna XP, but interior is also quite remarkable. “The Home Victory” cabin is adorned by green carbon fiber and green leather whereas “The Master of Monaco” is covered in red carbo fiber and red leather. Last but not the least, McLaren Senna XP “The Lap of the Gods” has a mixture of blue carbon fiber, blue leather and some red accents. All three McLaren Senna XP models are already spoken for, each of them has a price tag of $1,435,328.
