The Senna special McLaren P1 GTR

McLaren has built a special one-off P1 GTR to mark the 30th anniversary of the late Ayrton Senna’s first Formula 1 world championship.

The track car was commissioned by a McLaren collector and is resplendent in the MP4/4’s Marlboro livery of the day.

It also features a number of other aesthetic details such as Senna’s 1988 race number (#12) on the nose, his name on the doors and splitter, and 30th anniversary laurels.

Mechanically, the car has a “unique engine specification”, 24ct gold heatshield, Lexan rear cover, modified engine bay shrouds.

There are also aerodynamic revisions which bring downforce up to around 800kg including new front dive planes, wider front splitter, and larger rear wing endplates.
