McLaren Senna wows em at RAF Wroughton

The Senna has 789 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque thanks to a 4.0-L twin-turbo V8 engine. Zero to 62 mph comes in 2.8 seconds, while zero to 124 mph takes 6.8 seconds. Top speed is 211 mph, but it would be faster if the car didn't create a metric ton of downforce. That's almost enough for the car to drive upside down.

The Senna obliterated the previous lap record at RAF Wroughton. At 1 minute and 12.9 seconds it was nearly 4 seconds faster than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante.
With production capped at 500 examples, and only about 120 units earmarked for the US, getting one might be problematic.

Barrett-Jackson hammered nearly new number 005 for $1.45m this month at it's Scottsdale auction.
