2018 McLaren Senna

2018 McLaren Senna

Remember the P15 codename? Well, here it is, McLaren is presenting us their new hypercar which isn't out to replace the P1 - that's another story, for another time. 

So, what makes it special? In few words, it's an extreme road car, the most extreme car McLaren ever got out and the design sure expresses it. The car is an extension of the 720s' platform an chassis, but with a wider track, huge air intakes and an all-so dramatic rear wing.

So let's start with the numbers, power output of 1000HP, which is from the both electrical and combustion engines. Turning it into a track-toy, has widened the front track by 80mm and the car sits lower by 50mm. McLaren states that they reduced the overall weight by 50kg, due to motorsport solutions. 
Side windows are made of racing polycarbonate, the glass roof has been replaced by carbon fiber, the same treatment happened to the engine cover.

McLaren P1 GTR

"Best driver's car in the world on track", anyone? At least this is what McLaren aims to do with this model. Unveiled as a concept study at Pebble Beach this weekend, the GTR features a tweaked V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo mid-mounted engine and the electric motor and managed to bump output of the hybrid system from 916 PS (674 kW) to 1,000 PS (736 kW).

The car has also been aerodynamic adjusted, with a fixed ride height, front splitter and carbon canards, redesigned skirts and carbon spoiler - with hydraulic DRS.

The Race - McLaren P1 vs Bugatti Veyron Vitesse

The Race
The ways of Photoshop are limitless, combine that with imagination and creativity and you can expect great results.
Ever since I saw this picture, I knew I had to make it more dynamic, angle was right, position and background as well.
Veyron needed a lower stance, bigger wheels and a more popping color. The McLaren had everything, enhanced the rear with a backfire and custom plates for both the cars, because details matter - how about a "lowered" window for the Bugatti?
