With an illustrious Formula One legacy, McLaren know a thing or two about producing extreme performance cars. And while Senna Without the extreme power or high-tech all-wheel drive like some of the supercars in our top 10, it’s still capable of circling most of the other cars on the list.
It doesn’t have the previous hybrid trick McLaren P1, but it has an inactive shape, as its odd lines are designed to cut through the air like no other road car. The lightweight carbon fiber construction throughout also means weight is kept at around 1,200kg, creating very little mass for the 789hp, 800Nm, 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 to operate. That means it’s capable of 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and can manage 0-124mph in 6.8 seconds on closed roads.
But then, the chassis is designed for cornering performance, and the adaptive suspension can be set to produce corners like no other road-registered car on sale today. One area where the Senna is on par with its hypercar brethren is price: at £750,000, it’s a race car that only the super-rich can afford.
