Ayrton Senna is a legend still mourned by millions of fans worldwide. A phenomenal champion to whom McLaren has paid an unprecedented tribute in the form of the Senna, an incredible supercar. He would certainly have liked it because, despite being street legal, it offers unique performance on the track thanks to its 800 kg (0.88 t) of aerodynamic load, a dry weight of 1,198 kg (1.3 t), 800 HP, and maximum torque of 800 Nm. This combination means that it can go from zero to 200 km/h (124.3 mph) in just 6.8 seconds.
Senna loved experimenting firsthand with new brake solutions, from calipers with 4 pads to aluminum alloys that gave the braking system greater rigidity. In his honor, McLaren uses the most advanced braking system ever mounted on one of its road cars. The latest generation CCM-R carbon-ceramic discs (the carbon-ceramic material is specifically designed for racing applications) have an extremely high heat dissipation capacity - much higher than that of traditional carbon-ceramic discs. This makes it a valuable and sophisticated product that can take up to 8 months to make, compared to the 2 months needed to make traditional carbon-ceramic discs.
