Appointing a car to charge the best driver of all time to start Formula One racing is a brave decision, and McLaren calls his new, center-focused Hypercar. The senna is similar to that of Ferrari, Schumacher or Audi, starting with 300-mph Rosemeyer. This is holy ground. For racing fans, the company’s customers and Sena’s family, who have approved the use of the name of the Airton Sena Foundation, are much harder to understand. Later this year, once we move the bush, we will confirm whether the British automaker has achieved its goal of producing the simplest, fastest, and most fascinating McLaren. Until then, right after the first wave of information released in December, here are 10 things we’ve gathered from the last trip to beat and beat both the car and the opinions of its engineers. It looks pretty promising.
This is a commercial vehicle
Although it has a license plate and airbags, but will not be confused by these concessions on the legality of the road: Sneh is built to make the speed laps on the road. McLaren’s development matrix, which defines the road’s reliability against driving practice, puts the bush on the road as much as possible and is still available to him. Both Hybrid P1 and “720S” are in the middle every day. When McLaren builds a road construction car, she has to change her scale. The next three-seat model, codenamed BP23, is at the other end of the scale; It will conveniently focus on the road.
The key to the race and the performance of the bush is the aerodynamics. At 155 mph, the rear wing active seamlessly integrates with any active elements (marked in a contrasting color) to generate 1764 pounds of force. This is more than astronomical number spent by P1. And it is achieved far from the maximum speed of the vehicle. Downforce increases with the square of the speed: Speed also increases the resistance to reach its maximum speed of 211 km / h, the rear wing of the bush cuts its posture. McLaren will not announce any power over 155 mph, and we suspect that number is pretty heavy.
Half-page windows serve three purposes. First, they pointed to Formula One, the car that launched McLaren’s car development in the 1990s. Second, they reduce the resistance. Each window seam is an air-absorbent top. So, if you have, for example, the linear thighs of the seams. From 10 meters to 4 meters the drag coefficient decreases. Third, they save weight and space. Limiting the curved curved glass height – the greenhouse shape requires aggressively curved side windows – can make the motors and hardware smaller and the doors thinner. Pull out, the Senna doors weigh 22 pounds, compared to 42 pounds units at 720S.
