    1. 720s was the same for me, thought it was ugly (headlights), but now it’s just so sexy looking. The headlight design was odd at first, but now it just looks so much better than everyone else.

    1. Julian Evans yea the dry weight is BS.. 720s wet is 3200lbs or 1454kg this will be at least 100kg lighter 200kg sounds a but to much.. but on the other hand its a dangerous game if mclaren says its 200kg lighter then ppl weigh it to 85kg less like you Said cause every car comp lie about power and weight but thats huge if its only 85kg less when you cliam 200kg thats like 130% off which means mclaren should kill theire math ppl..

  1. The rear wing adjusting is crazy to see on video let alone while behind the car…. this car will do 9.5,9.8 quarter mile because the 720s does 10 flat again and again and again is crazy

    1. My guess for the Senna is 9.3sec to 9.6sec range with a trap speed of 150mph+ and yes I’m serious 🙂

    1. the fact that all they cared about is aeros, brakes and weight looks to me they built this beast for track day only. but so you dont need to tow it to the track they put some headlights on it

    2. SmashGhost sorry but Senna is not in the league of Project One and Valkyrie. McLaren BP23 will be but this is certainly not.

    3. The Senna I believe its a step behind… that place corresponds to the Mclaren BP23…. the real succesor of the original Mclaren F1.

    4. CaFilms Project One in paper can’t be matched by the Senna…. in one year we will see all this track toys reviewed by almost the entire car journalist and car youtuber community.

    5. You guys know the BP23 is supposed to be a GT right ? The BP23 will compete with the Chiron and the Regera, not the track focused hypercars. The Senna will obliterate the BP23 on a track.

    1. Joey Nice for an oilchange haha no it doesnt.. this has the same engine as the 720s and it costs nowhere near 25k lol. Youre thinking about mclaren f1 service costs

    1. TheForresterOD why did they put this bloke in to it? Seems seriously dull. Took what should’ve been an awesome drive and made it sound as exhilarating as driving as Kia

    2. This ‘guy’ is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced motoring journalists out there. Different folks like different styles.

    1. All mclaren v8 are meh lol I promise if they had a LFA v10 it’ll be one of the greatest cars in the world.

  2. “800 kg of downforce at 155 mph” thats good,but the Jag XJ220 had 1400 kg at 200 mph…27 years ago. Almost it’s own weight.

    1. I wouldn’t say anything it did was “ahead of it’s time”. It’s biggest advantage was appropriating full underbody tunnels that were thoroughly developed on race cars by then. The supercar/hypercar “arms race” is really more a question of how much of a race car are you willing to graft into a road car to the behest of comfort and usability. That’s entirely subjective, of course.

    2. Yes Ryan I know. But the point I made is the 220 was designed 29 years ago.Considering all the years that have passed and all the advancements in technology, the Senna really has not made a great leap concerning downforce and drag.

    3. Well, bear in mind that downforce numbers are harder to substantiate than power numbers (people have access to dynos, not necessarily wind tunnels), and probably should be taken with a grain of salt. Even with race cars, what you get in ideal tunnel conditions doesn’t always translate onto the track. I’m not saying Jaguar exaggerated their numbers, mind you, just that it’s tough to REALLY know.

      Not sure on the L:D numbers on either car. You need the respective frontal areas + drag coefficients to to calculate both (I’m working at the moment and don’t want to try and track them down), and the CdA is going to change on Senna because it’s active. You can take a L:D drag penalty braking and cornering and STILL be quicker around the circuit (you WANT as much drag as possible under braking, actually) even on a static aero platform, even moreso on an active one. A -4.5:1 might be the quickest around a street circuit, and a -6.0:1 (with less downforce overall) might be quickest around Le Mans. These are the truisms of racing.

      I often wonder if the limitations on downforce for road legal cars has to do with the limitations of road tires vs. track ones designed specifically for aero cars… mainly in coming up to temperature… because downforce numbers really haven’t grown too much. Basically a compound capable of not overheating under that sort of loading ends up being unsuitably ungrippy cold, or even warmed up by highway driving. But, something with a wider operational window will likely will go off quickly when flogged at ten tenths. If that’s the case (armchair engineering here), the best “road legal track car” is probably one where as much of the cumulative loading comes from the aero, and as little of the car’s mass. If you can’t add more downforce to a heavier car because of the limitations of road tires, then you make the thing as light as possible. Like BAC Mono light, with XJ220 tunnels.

  3. Matt doesnt seem that enthusiastic about the car! Thought he’d be raving, considering it is mclarens ultimate track day car. Need to wait for the full review to see if Matt’s feedback is purely because he’s focused on driving and not the cars performance.

    1. Stuart Lloyd-Jones because its been overhyped and at the end its just another boring bland muted monotonous McLaren.

    2. Gregg B Mclaren only hyped the cars as one of the fastest car they made and looks to be on the pace. I just can’t agree with you statment say it over hype.
