Amalgam’s McLaren Senna model at 1:8 scale has already received much acclaim, having been showcased at major automotive events around the world, including the Geneva Motor Show and Pebble Beach. Now, after hundreds of hours designing and developing, an evolution of the model has been introduced. Amalgam now offer the McLaren Senna with fully functioning exterior and interior lights and electric opening doors, all controlled by a sleek, minimal remote control. These new additions perfectly capture more exciting aspects of the Senna’s design, parading the McLaren F1-inspired dihedral doors and displaying all of the light functions available in the original car.
Legalised for road use, but not sanitised to suit it, the McLaren Senna is the personification of McLaren’s DNA at its most extreme, creating the purest connection between car and driver. Inspired by one of McLaren’s greatest racing drivers, the Senna is utterly dedicated to allowing the driver to be the best they can possibly be, unashamedly without compromise. Nothing else matters but to deliver the most intense driving experience around a circuit in the most track-focused road car to be produced by McLaren.
The lightest McLaren road car since the iconic McLaren F1 weights 1198kg thanks to the extensive use of carbon fibre. The Senna also houses a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, the most powerful McLaren road car internal combustion engine. This combination creates a staggering power-to-weight ratio of 659bhp-per-tonne. It is the most direct and responsive McLaren ever built, establishing a new track benchmark for the British marque. A dual-clutch, seamless-shift, seven-speed gearbox delivers power from the mid-mounted engine to the rear wheels which, combined with Formula 1 adopted Ignition Cut technology, delivers savage acceleration: 0-62mph (100km/h) is achieved in 2.8 seconds, 0-124mph (200km/h) in 6.8 seconds and 0-186mph (300km/h) in 18.8 seconds. The Senna can complete the standing quarter mile in just 9.9 seconds, roaring to a maximum speed of 208mph (335km/h). In the pursuit of the most rewarding and intuitive driving experience, the Senna is armed with pioneering active aerodynamics that generate unprecedented levels of downforce – up to 800kg – and revolutionary suspension technology originally developed for the McLaren P1. The braking system is the most advanced ever fitted to a McLaren road car. The next-generation carbon ceramic brakes utilise racing technology, and each disc takes seven months to create – seven times longer than a conventional carbon ceramic disc. The resulting braking performance is phenomenal: 124mph (200km/h) to standstill is achieved in just 100 metres, and less than 30 metres is covered when stopping from 62mph (100km/h). Due to its extreme performance, the McLaren Senna possesses bespoke tyres, developed in conjunction with technical partner Pirelli, that feature an asymmetrical tread pattern, providing outstanding lateral grip, and a special construction that maintains cornering stiffness.
The extremely aggressive appearance of the McLaren Senna epitomises the company’s ‘form-follows-function’ design philosophy. Downforce and aerodynamic balance are the guiding principles and the car’s designers have gone to extremes. Proportionally, it is recognisably a McLaren though, in pursuit of absolute performance, the McLaren Senna is purposely fragmented in its appearance. For McLaren’s design team, it honours the engineering of the vehicle in the most honest way. Only 500 are to be produced.
