McLaren Senna just got an upgrade option that makes it look absolutely stunning. The hypercar gets a whole new build with carbon fiber, and takes its sweet time dressing up. The carbon fiber build takes about a 1000 hours to produce, that nice solar detailing takes about 250 hours. So yeah, it’s not just some quick paintjob to cook up a new look.
Posing like the hot piece that it is, McLaren MP4-12C of creative director Thomas Moeller and photographer Benedict Redgrove. The occasion was the launch of the new McLaren website that gave the creatives access to the car for a few days. Plus, the car poses for the camera like a pro.
Haman’s memoR is an especially decked out McLaren MP4-12C. While going in for the colorful paintjob, Hamann also did what they do best: tune the car. Using a little inspiration from the 1995 LeMans champion McLaren F1, Hamann gave the car a new aerodynamic package in the shape of carbon front spoiler, carbon mudguards, air outlets, front apron, attachments to the side aprons and larger air inlets for the mid-engined supercar.
McLaren has chopped the top off its MP4-12C supercar to come up with the MP4-12C Spider that has all intentions to take on the Ferrari 458 Italia Spider. The drop-top McLaren has a metal roof that can be pulled up or down at the touch of a button. The roof cannot be operated while the car is driving at speeds above 19mph, which in supercar lingo means the roof can only be operated while the car is at a halt.
Michael Arndt has built a McLaren 4/14 F1 car with matchsticks. It took him 6 years, 956,000 matchsticks, 1,686 tubes of glue, $8,725, lot of hard work and patience, to build this full scale replica, but at the end, a heart filled with pride and satisfaction.
