McLaren Explains Why It Named The Senna After The Legendary Ayrton
McLaren has yet to settle on how it names its supercars. However, its range-topper was named the P1 and now, its latest hypercar is the Senna.
When we first heard that McLaren was naming its street-legal 798-hp weapon after one of the most iconic racing drivers, we were confused.
It looks like we weren’t the only ones that were perplexed with the decision, because McLaren has made a video to address why it bestowed its new hypercar with the Senna name, with some of the individuals behind the car giving a brief description on why they believe it lives up to its name.
“His values and his drive and determination, his quest for excellent influenced not only his life but the way we do cars in McLaren,” said the automaker’s engineering design director, Dan Parry-Williams. “That does exemplify our approach to this car with pushing boundaries we’ve not pushed before.”
Not everyone agrees that the design of the Senna does justice to the iconic F1 champion, but the brand clearly had a good reason for it.
