I’ve made no secret of my distaste for the McLaren Senna’s looks. Thankfully, McLaren has heard my bellyaching and given us this: the McLaren Senna “Carbon Theme.” It’s not bad! It’s just really freaking expensive.
When it’s all decked out in carbon fiber and high contrast photo editing like this, it really doesn’t look as terrible. That’s the magic of wearing black I suppose: It hides bad lines on a car and looks slimming on people. Same concept, really.
The “Carbon Theme” is a special edition Senna that McLaren Special Operations created. On the outside, it’s made from 67 different parts that took almost 1,000 hours to create, according to a press release. It also has color accents with fun names like “Solar Yellow” and “Laurel Green.”
The black-yellow-green color scheme continues inside the car, but other than that, it more or less looks the same as the regular Senna.
The Senna Carbon Theme will show its face at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, set to take place later on in March. McLaren Sennas are usually priced at £750,000 (approximately $1 million), but if you want the extra exposed carbon bits and yellow and green paint like in the picture you see above, that’ll run you an additional £300,000 (approximately $400,000).
Yeesh. Just buy a damn Ferrari at that point.
