This carbon-clad McLaren Senna looks incredible

A special version of the 2018 McLaren Senna hypercar will be rolled out at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, with many carbon fibre parts setting it apart from the already outrageous standard verison. It's one of five themes developed by the company's bespoke department for the road-legal track vehicle, and probably the most spectacular.

According to MSO, the carbon finish you see here took nearly 1000 hours to produce. Solar Yellow and Laurel Green detailing echoes the helmet livery of Ayrton Senna, legendary Brazilian Formula 1 driver and three-time World Champion.

That's because it combines a gloss Visual Carbon Fiber body with Carbon Black Alcantara interior trim for a striking effect.

MSO is also demonstrating a special set of seven-spoke, center-lock wheels on the Senna show vehicle that are 10 percent lighter than the standard rims. Both seats feature the Senna "S" logo on the headrest. One of the front fenders proudly displays the Senna brand.

Based on the quoted 1000 hours it takes to create the Carbon Theme finish - or 42 days, accounting for rounding - that's a cool £7143 ($12,650) per day for the MSO additions.

Ansar Ali, Managing Director, McLaren Special Operations, said: "With the vehicle having generated so much interest since its unveiling in December, we knew we needed to produce something very special in order to showcase the unique talents of McLaren Special Operations". The standard wheel is available in three finishes, but the new MSO 7-Spoke, Hybrid Carbon Fibre Wheel is the only alternative design available from McLaren for the auto. They are new seven-spokers comprising forged alloy centres with carbon-fibre rims and which at 7.5kg are per cent lighter than the standard wheels. The reduction in unsprung mass results in a 10-15 percent reduction in rotating inertia, improving acceleration, braking and steering responses.

If that's not enough carbon for you, McLaren is also using Geneva to launch a new carbon fiber wheel option.

What do you think of the McLaren Senna Carbon Theme? Hopefully all 500 buyers were made aware of this, because the Senna has been sold out since its December reveal. Roughly 250 of those production hours are taken up by the yellow detailing alone.
