Hello Senna GTR!

The Senna GTR was announced and unveiled this morning at Geneva.

Looks awesome! So far we know:

< 75 units
c 1,000,000
> 825PS
< 1,198 kg

Up to 1,000 kg of downforce

Position markers present on the side, indicating it will race, perhaps at Le Mans.

Awesome is not the first adjective that springs to mind.

Looks way better with the wider floor and tires. Nice splitter and diffuser. So now this car is making similar downforce to the AMR Valkyrie Pro.

And they said that nothing could make the standard P15 seem relatively good looking....

... You haven't seemed very convinced by Mclaren claimed aero numbers for both this and the road car at 800kg....

Wow - the diffusor and splitter are insane. I'm one of the ones who thought the Senna was kind of ugly when I first saw pictures from the reveal, but now I'd want one if I could afford it (and get an allocation). And now this GTR is beyond bonkers. No Ultimate series in my future but it's nice to now that beneath all that wild aero there is basically a tweaked 720S drivetrain

Most people are missing the side exhaust. It's blowing the floor of the car to minimize tire squirt. Harkens to the days of exhaust blown diffuser. This car has a bigger floor, diffuser, splitter, canards, wider front fenders, and exhaust blowing. I can see a 25+% improvement in downforce

What is your overall thoughts on the car if you are willing to share?

Seeing how you have some of the more extreme cars around, would be nice to hear from someone with your insight.
