First US McLaren Senna delivered

McLaren Senna

Custom green-carbon hypercar ordered by renowned US collector

McLaren has delivered its first Senna to the United States and it’s an absolute stunner.

Its owner is flamboyant Cuban-born, New York-based car collector Michael Fux. Fux is known for favouring outlandish custom colours – he has a purple Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe and fuchsia McLaren 720S – but his Senna is much more restrained.

McLaren claims it takes almost 1000 hours to produce the 67 separate parts that comprise the Senna’s complicated bodywork. Providing a contrast to the body are the centrelock wheel nuts painted red (right) and blue (left).

In the news: Senna has a $530k optional carbon pack

According to McLaren, around one-third of the 500 Sennas built have been bought by US customers and Fux’s unique example will make its public debut at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, an event held during Monterey Car Week.

Fux has also confirmed he is one of the 106 customers to be receiving the forthcoming McLaren BP23 hypercar.
