Rarer than a rainbow-colored flying unicorn, the elusive McLaren Senna LM finally gets a properly official introduction courtesy of McLaren Orlando and McLaren New Jersey, the two outlets that joined forces to bring the special series on American soil.
British motorsport tradition goes a long way for car fans, so McLaren is no stranger to creating ample ripple waves across traditional competitions such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Exactly a quarter of a century ago, McLaren’s F1 GTR delivered a historic premiere for the race by not only besting the purpose-built prototypes of the WSC (World Sportscar Championship) with a GT1-spec model, but also having a total of five examples wrap up the race in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th positions overall.

Collectors usually relish in such long shots, so the company quickly built five specially commissioned F1 LMs to mark the special occasion. Twenty-five years later, the original victory from 1995 and Bruce McLaren’s racing pedigree get celebrated by another commission, this time based on a spiritual successor – the Senna.

We are dealing with equally special cars, as the latter has been specifically created to emulate a true race car experience on the road – while also directly celebrating the memory of Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna and McLaren’s Formula One World Constructor's Championship titles.

Now a couple of McLaren distributors in North America are looking for a mélange of this incredible heritage in the form of a special commission dedicated to the U.S. market, with McLaren Orlando and McLaren North Jersey joining forces to offer exactly five Senna LM units.

The inspiration is obvious – the new Senna LM examples share the McLaren Orange hue akin to F1 LM’s original Papaya Orange paintwork and include a series of bespoke factory-performed enhancements.

The latter include a McLaren Special Operations (MSO) conversion to the Senna GTR power level of 814 hp, the addition of polished ports and cylinder heads for the engine, OZ wheels, a satin gold finish for the exhaust tips, as well as a tailored set of aero body modifications and a 24-carat gold heatshield.

On the inside the customers of the five Senna LM will find additional goodies such as unique LM branding and Titanium Nitride foot pedals, among others. As far as pricing is concerned, you know the drill... if you must ask you (most) likely can't afford it.
