dealer spot but too good not to share... this crazy spec Senna in Chicago..... sources say the sticker on this car is $2.6m.... meaning $1.6m in options.

Quite a beast to behold.

Read more about the kiwi bird here:

https://thenewswheel.com/behind-the-...ds-cigarettes/

The first emblem used by McLaren was designed in 1964 by artist Michael Turner for the Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Team. It features a kiwi, the symbol of Bruce’s home of New Zealand.



The kiwi was streamlined in later iterations after a redesign in 1967 that set its silhouette against a vibrant “McLaren Orange” color. This sleek shape became known as the Speedy Kiwi.

Matches the Explorer outside, same owner?

Looks great in the white/blue/orange.

Corner of Chicago and LaSalle, giving it a good rev up.

^^^ nice I've seen that one too and snapped it too


Crazy how the Senna has 245 tires in front. If you watch Chris Harris' super video where he compares it to the 650S GT3, he talks about the front tires being the car's primary weakness.

Not really "desirable" or "exotic," but certainly rarely seen, especially in the wild ... a 1970 (?) Cadillac Coupe Deville convertible ...

This IS your grand-daddy's Caddy ... big, fin-taillights, white-walls, lots of chrome .... my guess, 7-8 mpg ...

^ - Are you one of the few remaining TL owners without a cracked dash?

And yeah the mpg is probably comfortably in the 7-9 range. The rear bumper alone probably weighs a ton.

Very observant. Yeah, no dash cracks ... but you should see my rear bumper ... many years of parallel parking have resulted in tons of nicks and chipped paint ....

The creativity of Senna owners spec'ing their cars is really hit-or-miss. Some guys have come up with gorgeous designs and then some like that, leave a bit to be desired. Far from the worst, though.
