Chasing Senna in the new issue of Top Gear magazine, out now!From Estoril to Monaco in the new Senna hypercar. Plus: free retro supplement
The new issue of Top Gear magazine is out now, and it’s a big one: we take the new McLaren Senna hypercar on a 1,500 road trip from Estoril to Monaco. Why? To see if Woking’s new creation is worthy of the name.
And what a name. Ayrton’s name evokes memories of a man who was, perhaps, the singlemost focused, evocative and talented driver of his generation. Who can forget that qualifying lap in Monaco, 1988, or his drive in the wet at Donington in 1993? Indeed, Senna’s first ever Formula 1 victory came at Estoril… in the wet. It’s where we begin our journey in the new Senna, ending up at Monaco, a circuit Ayrton dominated during his career.
