Only 75 examples of the McLaren Senna GTR were made and this 2020 McLaren Senna GTR on offer was #28. When the track-exclusive McLaren Senna GTR made its debut in 2018, McLaren itself claimed it to be the fastest non-Formula 1 car that they had at the time.

The example is equipped with the MonoCage III carbon-fiber monocoque platform and has a dry weight of 2,619 lbs., which is 22 lbs. lighter compared to the road-going Senna. Compared to the same, the Senna GTR has 3-inch wider front track and 2.7-inch wider rear track. It also has active aerodynamics, rear spoiler with a drag reduction system, as well as a revised front splitter and rear diffuser. The GTR can produce 2,205 lbs of downforce at 155 mph, which is 442 lbs more than the road-going version.

The example was given a $23,525 McLaren Special Operations finish with the body panels given a factory-installed MSO Gulf livery vinyl wrap that took inspiration from the McLaren F1 GTR that competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1997, this was another $40k option. Features on the example include a roof scoop, polycarbonate windshield and windows, front and side air intakes, anti-collision system with rearview cameras and radar. It is also equipped with pneumatic air jacks.

The example has a newly installed 286/650 front and 325/705 rear Pirelli P Zero tires which were put in place just this May 2021. It is matched with the 19-inch center-lock wheels with a matte dark graphite finish. The sale will come with a set of orange 19-inch staggered-width center-lock wheels.

The suspension of the Senna GTR is similar to the one used on the 720S GT3 race car with double-wishbones at all four corners and four-way adjustable Ohlins dampers, and adjustable anti-roll bars. It is also equipped with stability control, traction control, and anti-lock brake systems which it shares with the road-worthy Senna. For the braking system, it has a revised brake booster, and six- and four-piston aluminum monobloc calipers on carbon-ceramic rotors.

When the twin-hinge dihedral doors are opened, the carbon-fiber racing seats trimmed in black Alcantara marked with the GTR brand are revealed. This Senna GTR has a passenger seat, with both seats are equipped with six-point harnesses. There is also the integrated roll cage, fire-suppression system, pit-to-car radio, and air conditioning.

The multi-function steering yoke with paddle shifters sits in front of an LCD data-logger with integrated shift lights. The example has a mileage of only 600 kilometers (around 400 miles).

The driver’s door sill has a plaque that shows the car as #28 of 75 examples made.

Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine which is similar to the road-worthy Senna. It is factory rated at 814 hp at 7,250 rpm with 590 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm in GTR specification. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle delivers power to the rear wheels of the example.

The Carfax reports the maintenance service done on the example from January 2020 to December 2021. It shows neither any accidents nor any damage.

As of writing, the 2020 McLaren Senna GTR has a bid of $1,300,000 with bidding ending in January 2, 2022.

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
