McLaren reveals Senna-inspired P1 GTR

The McLaren P1 GTR looks fantastic from the photos and it features an exclusive paint job and more.

McLaren's latest one-off supercar is a P1 GTR that pays homage to Ayrton Senna's MP4/4, the auto in which he won his first Formula 1 championship some 30 years ago.

At their request, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) recreated the colour scheme from Senna's most famous race vehicle on the customer's 2019 P1 GTR, and we have to admit it looks stunning.

It's easy to spot, as the P1 features a full livery inspired by the classic white and red Marlboro sponsor theme applied to Senna's 1988 McLaren MP4/4 F1 vehicle.

The vehicle was commissioned by a McLaren collector who was inspired by Ayrton Senna from a young age and wanted to create a tribute that echoed the Brazilian's trademark perfectionism. Details on the vehicle include the Senna Brand Trademark on the front splitter and in front of the air intake as well as on each door. The doors also sport the Brazilian flag and a bar code used in place of "Marlboro" as deemed necessary by advertising restrictions. Mechanically, this bespoke P1 GTR retains its 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged heart, although it now benefits from a subtly undisclosed boost in power over the original 968bhp. The paint job took over 800 hours to complete.

With such a fitting tribute for Ayrton Senna, the owner of the special P1 GTR chose to christen the P1 GTR with the name "Beco" (with the full blessing of the Senna family).

The visual enhancements carry over to the engine bay, which features a bespoke 24-carat gold heat shield and modified engine shrouds. The auto features new front dive planes, a wider front splitter and a rear a Gurney flap. Exact power figures haven't been mentioned, but, according to the owner it now offers a "suitably pleasing" increase over the standard P1 GTR's 735kW output (1000PS).

The car's interior has also seen an overhaul - with a Senna logo featuring on the Alcantara-trimmed steering wheel plus the headrests for the carbon-fibre bucket seats taken from the McLaren Senna hypercar.
