The McLaren Senna hypercar is built on Monocage III carbon structure and can trace its lineage back to 1981 and the McLaren MP4/1, the first carbon Formula 1 racing car. While the body panel of the McLaren Senna gets carbon-fibre technology from Formula One, the Monocage III is the strongest carbon-fibre monocoque ever created by McLaren for a road car. With a total weight of 1198kg, the McLaren Senna is the lightest road car McLaren ever built.
