Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo is an avid car nut, and his garage of supercars, hypercars and luxury cars is a petrolhead’s wet dream. Cristiano Ronaldo has just added the Mclaren Senna supercar to his garage. The footballer, who plays for Juventus, was recently seen taking a spin in the Mclaren Senna, a car that costs GBP 750,000 or about Rs. 6.6 crores. Here is a video that shows Ronaldo driving the supercar.
Mclaren does not officially operate in India, which means that rich Indians who want this car have to use the private import route to bring it into the country. Many rich Indians including Gautam Singhania – the Raymond boss – have used the Carnet route to get the Mclaren 570S into India while others like Adar Poonawalla have directly imported one from the UK.
Coming back to the Mclaren Senna that’s now owned by Cristiano Ronaldo, the car has a coupe style, and can hit a top speed of over 335 Kmph. The car can hit 100 Kph from standstill in just 2.8 seconds while the quarter mile is dispatched in just 9.9 seconds. The Mclaren Senna is a Limited Production car, like most cars built by the British supercar marque.
The car was first showcased to the world at the Geneva Motor Show of 2018, and features a 4 liter V8 petrol engine that gets twin turbochargers. Peak power output of 800 PS is produced at 7,250 rpm while the peak torque of 800 N⋅m is produced at 5,500 rpm. The supercar is rear wheel driven by means of a 7 speed, twin clutch automatic gearbox.
Mclaren built the Senna supercar as a tribute to legendary F1 driver Ayrton Senna. The Senna is meant to be Mclaren’s Lamborghini Huracan rival, and sits below the 720S in terms of price and positioning. However, Mclaren has ensured that the Senna benefits from the various weight reduction techniques the automaker has developed from its Formula1 racing effort. The car weighs just 1,198 kilograms.
It gets an electronically controlled, F1 style adjustable double-element rear wing that also doubles up as an air brake. Nobody in India has taken delivery of a Mclaren Senna just as yet. In the coming months, expect one of the supercar loving rich people of the country to bring in a Mclaren Senna as it’s just a matter of time before limited edition cars make it to Indian roads.
