McLaren Senna Semper: a tribute to the square for Ayrton

The McLaren Senna is one of the greatest tributes ever made. Naming a production supercar after a driver is a gesture that only reflects the greatness of Ayrton Senna. We all agree that the Brazilian left too soon and that his potential was incredible. He was recently honored at the Imola Grand Prix, just 30 years after his death on the track. Now comes the McLaren Senna Always to do a square reconnaissance.

It is a Senna with a special livery They want to reflect the personality of the pilot. It is a logical move on the part of the British manufacturer, as the driver was with them between 1988 and 1993, winning three Formula 1 championships. In fact, a special configuration has also been created for MCL38 single-seaters that Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri will drive in the Monaco Grand Prix. It is no coincidence that good old Ayrton won there five consecutive times in his time with McLaren.

As it could not be otherwise, the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) department is the one that created this unique example in collaboration with the Ayrton Senna Institute. They have tried to pay tribute to him through several premises such as his search for perfection, his Brazilian nationality or McLaren's history in competitions. That's why They took a pre-production Senna that they had used for different areas and began with a complete transformation.

They started applying bright colors on its body, with blue tones in the lower part of the front bumper and the Senna double S logo in the cross section. The green and yellow tones are the protagonists, representing the Brazilian flag, while giving life to the protagonist of the tribute. There is two images of Ayrton Senna on the rear fins, something that has been done entirely by hand with a dot matrix effect. The satin carbon fiber and the rims provide the point of contrast.

Inside, we opt for a yellow Alcantara upholstery Tailored with green perforations and a white 12 o'clock marker on the steering wheel. The seats have the pilot's numbers and one of his most famous phrases also appears on the door sills: “I have no idols. I admire the work, the dedication and the competition.”. The McLaren Senna Semper carries that combination that has always followed the driver, even in his mythical helmetand becomes the greatest four-wheeled tribute it has ever had.

Happy drivers
