One McLaren Senna on the German Autobahn is crazy, and two is even crazier! I'm back with my friend GerCollector to collect my Senna, and after so much talking about it we had to take out both of our cars together for a dinner drive. It just so happens that includes a blast to 330km/h or 205mph on the de-restricted section... wow it's fast!
About a month ago, I brought the Senna over to Germany in a trailer behind my AMG G63, and after a stop at the Nurburgring for some quick laps, parked it with my friend GerCollector temporarily ahead of the adventures kicking off this month. In the meantime it's been sat safely side by side with GerCollector's Senna; the two cars looking brilliant together in their inverted colour schemes. It's always been on the cards that with some time available we would certainly take them for a drive together, and it could not have been more fun!
The drive just so happens to be a run to dinner, to get some pizzas from L'Osteria, via an Autobahn detour that fortunately is without rain or too much traffic and allows the Sennas to come to life! These cars are indisputably fast, with 800hp and very little weight, the way they can properly in a straight line is mind boggling, even despite having huge rear spoilers intended for use on the track. With some de-restricted sections, the rate of acceleration with which my car reaches 330km/h (205mph) on the dashboard is breathtaking and equally so how planted it is at that speed.
At this time, my 675LT Spider has also now made it's way back to London thanks to my friend Joe Achilles, who came out to Germany to drive it back safely to the storage with the other Shmeemobiles. Over the coming days we will also be taking the Senna, along with the SLS Black Series and BMW M8 with BenzeneBen and Shmarc150 on a journey to Switzerland, the mountains, and an epic car event.
