McLaren Automotive would appear to have been quite careful – moderately conservative, even – with its decisions about pricing and production volume on the Senna. A £750,000 asking price isn’t ridiculous, believe it or not, in the high-net-worth car buff’s world of multimillion-pound hypercars.
And the signs are that the market might even value the car more highly than McLaren did, with build slots having reportedly changed hands for quarter-million-pound premiums and the earliest cars appearing in the classifieds now at seven-figure prices.
McLaren’s UK price list on the car is very short by the usual exotic-territory standards. The most expensive item on it is £9500 for an MSO Defined paint job, and the vast majority of its entries (touring seats, three-point seatbelts, air conditioning, rear-view camera etc) are no-cost options that you can specify so long as you’re prepared to accept the associated weight.
