McLaren Senna review - the ultimate track driving experience - MPG and running Costs

McLaren has taken a legendary name and produced what genuinely could become a legendary car

MPG and running Costs

It’s tempting to be pithy and simply leave this section with the words ‘thirsty and expensive’. It’s no surprise that the Senna will drink lots of fuel: when driven hard and using all of its 789bhp it’s clearly pumping in an awful lot of super unleaded.

As for running costs, these will hardly be a consideration for the Senna buyer, although the fact that the car uses plenty of technology and componentry shared with other McLarens should pay some dividend when compared to other completely bespoke racing machinery.
