McLaren Senna To Feature on Cover Art of Forza Horizon 4
McLaren Automotive’s latest Ultimate Series supercar – the stunning 800PS McLaren Senna – will soon be accessible to a new audience, one that will be able to experience the thrill of getting behind the wheel as part of McLaren’s latest collaboration with Microsoft’s Forza racing franchise in the highly anticipated “Forza Horizon 4.”
As the cover star of the latest entry in the award-winning Forza Horizon series, the McLaren Senna also made its North American debut at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, USA on June 12 – starring as the centrepiece of Microsoft’s Mixer booth where fans got their first chance to try the McLaren Senna in “Forza Horizon 4.”
The McLaren Senna – named after legendary Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna – is the most extreme road car that McLaren has ever built. Designed to be the most responsive and engaging car in the portfolio, it delivers the purest connection between driver and car and is limited to just 500 units worldwide, all of which have already been sold at a list price of £750,000 (U.K.).
Delivering a massive 800PS from its mid-mounted 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, the McLaren Senna is also the lightest McLaren since the legendary F1 and can reach 200 km/h in just 6.8 seconds and 300 km/h in 17.5 seconds, whilst delivering massive downforce totaling some 800kg by employing its active front and rear aerodynamic devices.
In “Forza Horizon 4” – the highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s breakout hit “Forza Horizon 3” – players can get behind the wheel of the McLaren Senna in a shared open-world experience that features dynamic seasons in stunning native 4K and HDR.
The game, to be launched officially on October 2, 2018 on Xbox One, Windows 10 PCs and Xbox Game Pass, re-imagines open-world driving with new features, historic locations in McLaren Automotive’s home market of Britain, and more choice and customization than ever before, including over 450 cars at launch. More surprises and activities are planned later in the year as the McLaren and Forza partnership continues.
