All the news seems to be coming from McLaren these days. This week the British delivered their first Senna to a US based customer, Michael Fux. Nearly a third of all 500 Senna's will be delivered in the US. This copy goes to a man that has an extensive collection of cars that is nearing the 200! After taking delivery of his special MSO 720S it was now time to take delivery of his McLaren Senna, in Fux Green!
Perhaps most significant is the Full Visual Carbon Fibre Body, tinted in a custom emerald green color known as “Fux Green.” Comprising 67 parts, the full body set takes almost 1,000 hours to produce. Blue and red wheel centre lock nuts and ball polished wheels complete the exterior, while the body colour is carried through to the interior, with “Fux Green” Tinted Carbon in Gloss Finish, complimented by a bright white leather facia, seats, door uppers, and steering wheel, with green contrast stitching on the seats and steering wheel. The headliner remains in Carbon Black Alcantara®, while the door struts and rear-view mirror are painted in green.
Bearing the name of legendary Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, the newest family member to the Ultimate Series was developed to be the most responsive and engaging road-legal McLaren ever, offering the purest connection between the driver and car. Though the engine specs are impressive – a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 789bhp and 590 lb ft torque for 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and 0—124mph in a blistering 6.8 seconds—the aerodynamics are arguably most note worthy on the McLaren Senna. The active front aero blades and an active rear wing produce up to 1,763.7lbs of downforce, and are supported by the aggressive, form-follows-function design of the Senna in which aerodynamic performance was prioritized above visual appearance.
The “Fux Green” McLaren Senna joins a bespoke 720S that is also in Mr. Fux’s collection. Noted for its bright white interior and custom fuchsia exterior color known as “Fux Fuchsia” – Mr. Fux’s 720S made a splash on the Concept Car Lawn at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. These supercars join his other McLarens – a 12C in McLaren Orange and a 12C Spider in bespoke purple.
The McLaren Senna owned by Mr. Fux will be on display at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering during Monterey Car Week on August 24th.
Of je de excentrieke smaak van meneer Fux nu kunt waarderen of niet, het blijft een behoorlijke verschijning. Check de foto’s hieronder!
