Here's EVERYTHING a McLaren SENNA Owner Needs to Know!

  • Published on Jan 10, 2019
  • The McLaren Senna leads the way when it comes to road-legal cars with brutal track intent, but there's also an awful lot for a new owner to take in! During the handover day, you are taking on a full induction tour to cover lots of the ins and outs, and now having become familiar with it join me for a run over of all of its features!
    Named after legendary F1 World Champion, Ayrton Senna, the McLaren Ultimate Series car is built with one purpose in mind - to be as fast as possible for a road legal car at the track. Powered by a 4.0l twin turbo V8 with 800hp and 800nm of torque, along with radical aerodynamics that give it a whopping 800kg of downforce, it's quite something to reckon with.
    In addition to that though, it features a number of clever technologies including the Race Mode where the hydraulic suspension system adjusts and lowers, active aerodynamics for the rear wing and front flaps, and a lot of things you might not otherwise know about how it operates.
    Let's take a tour around the exterior to take in the features and complete specification of my car itself, chassis #281. On the exterior it's painted in MSO Cerulean Blue with satin blue tinted exposed carbon fibre, Dark Stealth wheels with Cerulean Blue centre-locks and MSO Silver brake calipers. Inside is largely carbon fibre and Alcantara with occasional Cerulean Blue touches to add small amounts of colour in a teardrop cabin that is as focused as intended for a car built for the racetrack.
    What you might not know about the Senna though, are how you open the nose bridge and where to find the towing eye; what's behind each of the various opening flaps on the outside, and how exactly to operate the Race Mode and Active Dynamics Panel. Join me then, for a complete run through of all of the details that a Senna customer needs to know about their car!
    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Join me for a full induction tour of my brand new McLaren Senna, finding out everything there is to know about the car and my specification! Before you ask, this video is a re-upload of the original out of respect to Salomondrin, who uploaded a video of the incident with his car at the exact same time. Come long now there where we'll go in detail to discover all the features from how Race Mode works, to the trick active aero and how all the interior technology works.

    I've got a question, you begin with explaining how track focused the car is, how MclLaren designed it to be as aerodynamic as possible and light weight. Why then do they compromise weight with things like a subwoofer, air conditioning, soft close etc?

    Well dear Tim, if you think that most of the cars are left hand drive the emergency equipment is indeed behind the co-driver and fire extinguisher is in front of the driver. Yet I am surprised that McLaren being a british company did not make the effort to swap the position of those two.

    Congrats Tim on your new Hot Wheels collection. I love it! The MSO Cerulean Blue is beautiful. In contrast with your new Ford GT, I prefer the Ford GT. I like the design of the Ford GT. It's the difference between 2 hot models... you want both, so you got both!)) All the best... youtube friend. Enjoy!)

    What no fuel filler cap! For a car costing upwards of £750k you'd have thought they could provide a simple fuel filler cap. Nice video and a thorough and thoughtful exposé of the phenomenal but rather ugly Senna. A Marmite car if ever there was one.

    Are you sure you are allowed to drive without the removable panel? I can imagine driving 250km/h on a track something can be damaged underneath this front panel. Looks quite fragile. Maybe you can get a diffrent front piece for track driving with a hole inside, so a hook can fit through.
