  • 1 of only 75 units built

  • 4L V8 814 hp engine
  • THE HOMAGE TO F1 Driver Ayrton Senna

THE McLAREN SENNA IS THE PERSONIFICATION OF McLAREN’S DNA AT ITS MOST EXTREME, CREATING THE PUREST CONNECTION BETWEEN CAR AND DRIVER

At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren unveiled the concept version of the track-only iteration of the Senna dubbed the Senna GTR. The production Senna GTR unveiled two years later has a different bodywork from the concept, with a different wing setup, toned-down aerodynamics, and utilizes a dual-clutch race transmission for faster gear shifts, a revised suspension system and Pirelli racing slicks in order to make it the fastest non-Formula One vehicle McLaren has ever created for faster lap times. The Senna GTR is estimated to produce at least 825 PS (607 kW; 814 hp) from its 4.0 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine and is meant to be faster and more agile than [...]

2015 – PORSCHE – 918 SPYDER Weissach Edition

ENGLISH / ENGLISCH

  • VERY SPECIAL PRE-SERIES CAR
  • BOOK PRESENT WITH ALL ITS HISTORY
  • NOT COMPARABLE WITH THE STANDARD 959

Internally the car was called „V5“, V stands for PRE-SERIES. The car was therefore tested in the PORSCHE factory. A former test driver travelled a lot with it and luckily, he was allowed to take photos.

This is the only 959 test car with comprehensive photographic documentation!

The car has a lot to tell, because it was in Sweden, it was at the North Cape, at the Nürburgring, in the Contidrome, in Nardo, in Ehra-Lessien etc. It never had a roll cage, so it was not taken for the tough tests, because one has always needed a 959 to show customers. That’s why this particular 959 was driven by Dr. Ferdinand Piëch himself!

 

PRICE ON REQUEST
