The sports car, made to measure. In the sense that the buyer can ask for this or that modification directly to whoever designs and builds it. Not a novelty for premium houses but Mc Laren’s Saber operation certainly curious, since it started directly from one of his dealerships, the super exclusive one in Beverly Hills (California), certainly with a very, very wealthy clientele. The new car is a two-seater hypercar where the starting point is that of the Senna: the doors and interiors with the central display are the same, while the aerodynamics and design have been completely revised. At the rear, we find a central fin and a new fixed wing inspired by the Senna GTR, but also the front and the front fenders have been modified. 15 units, all booked and customized by customers – only in the United States – thanks to the collaboration of the House of Woking with its Beverly Hills dealership and the buyers, involved under the Bespoke Commission program.
Track tests Very few technical notes, spread together with the first rendering. For now we know that it is equipped with the most powerful non-hybrid V8 McLaren biturbo ever produced to date with 824 hp and 590 Nm of torque. The Saber is also the fastest two-seater McLaren ever, as it exceeds 350 km / h. The special feature of this model, signed by MSO, is the co-creation created by the designers and engineers of the Woking factory together with customers. In early autumn, buyers were involved in a series of private test drives with a prototype of the car at the Thermal Club Private Race Track in partnership with O’Gara Motorsport and McLaren Beverly Hills. The personalized experience ensured that your final specimen matched exactly the desired and personalized concept.
Live and chat feedback After the secret track tests, assisted by technicians, the owners of the Saber provided live feedback on the car and suggested any changes – via a video chat – to the design and engineering team in Woking. This is why in delivering the first McLaren Saber to the new owner, it was reiterated by Parris Mullins, director of O’Gara Motorsport, that this time, it was not just about having a lucky customer, but a great enthusiast who was also a collaborator, designer and factory tester. All of this could turn their dream into reality. The price? Considering that the ‘standard’ Senna is close to one million euros on the official list, the barrier will have been adequately overcome.
