MSO-customized Fux Green McLaren Senna is delivered to owner in New York City

Article by Christian A., on July 26, 2018

The new McLaren Senna isn't your ordinary car on the road. It is a supercar that delivers 800 PS (789 hp), pays tribute to legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, and is available in a limited run of 500 examples. Now, one of these 500 examples has arrived in New York City, as delivered to renowned car collector Michael Fux.

Arriving at the garage of Fux is the first McLaren Senna made for North America. Furthermore, this example of the Senna was personalized for its owner by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). By taking a good look at the extensive bespoke content of this Senna example, it is safe to assume that Fux has really made this supercar an extension of his own personality.

Dubbed as the Fux Green McLaren Senna, this example features a Full Visual Carbon Fiber Body, as finished in a custom emerald green dubbed as Fux Green. This full body set has 67 parts, all needing nearly 1,000 hours to produce. The exterior is rounded off by blue-and-red wheel center lock nuts as well as ball-polished wheels.

The Fux Green carbon theme is continued in the cabin with a high gloss finish. This color is made more prominent by fascia, seats, steering wheel and door uppers that are all wrapped in bright white leather. The seats and the steering wheel are accented by green contrast stitching. The door struts and rear-view mirror are all finished in green, while the headliner is still wrapped in Carbon Black Alcantara.

Interestingly, Fux already owns another McLaren supercar as personalized to his own taste – a McLaren 720S. Featuring a Fux Fuchsia exterior and a bright white interior, this 720S was displayed Concept Car Lawn at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Fux also owns a 12C in McLaren Orange and a 12C Spider in bespoke purple. The McLaren Senna is part of the carmaker’s Ultimate Series while the 720S is a Super Series model.

Fux will have his bespoke displayed on August 24 at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering during the Monterey Car Week.

With a price of at least £750,000, each example of the McLaren Senna is hand-assembled by the carmaker’s specialists at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England. However, Senna examples commissioned from MSO takes longer to produce and comes with a premium price. Dubbed as McLaren’s most track-focused, road legal car, the Senna was developed with the help of Bruno Senna, nephew of Ayrton, a three-time F1 world champion. Bruno is currently a professional racer piloting for Rebellion Racing in the FIA World Endurance Championshiop.

Under the bonnet of the McLaren Senna is a biturbo 4.0 liter V8 engine that can deliver 800 PS (789 hp) of max output and 590 lb.-ft. (800 Nm) of peak torque – or around 79 hp and 22 lb.-ft. (30 Nm) more powerful than the 720S.

First North American McLaren Senna Delivered to Customer in New York City

The first North American designation of McLaren’s most extreme road car ever built, the McLaren Senna, has been delivered to customer Michael Fux in New York City. An entrepreneur, philanthropist and renowned car collector known for his eclectic taste, Mr. Fux’s Senna features an extensive list of bespoke content specified through McLaren Special Operations (MSO).

Perhaps most significant is the Full Visual Carbon Fibre Body, tinted in a custom emerald green colour known as “Fux Green.” Comprising 67 parts, the full body set takes almost 1,000 hours to produce. Blue and red wheel centre lock nuts and ball polished wheels complete the exterior, while the body colour is carried through to the interior, with “Fux Green” Tinted Carbon in Gloss Finish, complimented by a bright white leather facia, seats, door uppers, and steering wheel, with green contrast stitching on the seats and steering wheel. The headliner remains in Carbon Black Alcantara®, while the door struts and rear-view mirror are painted in green.

“We’re pleased to be here to officially deliver the first McLaren Senna in the North American market,” said Tony Joseph, President, McLaren North America. “This is such a special car – designed and engineered to be the ultimate road-legal track car ever produced by McLaren. We know that owners can’t wait to get their cars on the circuit, and we’re eager for them to get behind the wheel.”

Bearing the name of legendary Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, the newest family member to the Ultimate Series was developed to be the most responsive and engaging road-legal McLaren ever, offering the purest connection between the driver and car. Though the engine specs are impressive – a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 789bhp and 590 lb ft torque for 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds and 0—124mph in a blistering 6.8 seconds—the aerodynamics are arguably most note worthy on the McLaren Senna. The active front aero blades and an active rear wing produce up to 1,763.7lbs of downforce, and are supported by the aggressive, form-follows-function design of the Senna in which aerodynamic performance was prioritized above visual appearance.

As with all McLaren road cars, the McLaren Senna features a carbon “tub”—the Monocage II, which contributes to the lightest dry weight of 2,641lbs, making the McLaren Senna the lightest McLaren since the iconic F1. The RaceActive Chassis Control II suspension ensures maximum stability under heavy braking, high-speed cornering and intense acceleration, while the next-generation carbon ceramic, motorsport-derived brakes and bespoke Pirelli P Zero ™ Trofeo R tires deliver a more connected driving experience and quicker lap times.

The “Fux Green” McLaren Senna joins a bespoke 720S that is also in Mr. Fux’s collection. Noted for its bright white interior and custom fuchsia exterior color known as “Fux Fuchsia” – Mr. Fux’s 720S made a splash on the Concept Car Lawn at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. These supercars join his other McLarens – a 12C in McLaren Orange and a 12C Spider in bespoke purple.
