McLAREN P15 SENNA

McLAREN P15 SENNA

 

New McLaren P15 Senna. Specification yet to be confirmed, so you can choose your options preference – colour / interior / MSO etc.. Early delivery car UK or Euro.

The McLaren P15 Senna is a limited-production mid engine supercar sportscar manufactured by McLaren Automotive,. The car is the latest addition to the McLaren Ultimate Series, joining the F1 and the P1; however, it is not a direct successor to either of those cars. It was revealed to the world online by the company on December 10, 2017, with the official debut taking place at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. Production will be limited to 500 units, with each car hand-built at the McLaren production centre in Woking. The car pays tribute to the late F1 driver Ayrton Senna and his accomplishments with the company’s Formula One Team, ( back in the days when F1 had some characters and they actually raced each other : )

Specifications

McLaren’s main focus, while designing the Senna was to achieve faster lap times. In order to do so, McLaren developed a lightweight design that incorporated many aerodynamic elements.

The McLaren P15 Senna is largely based on the McLaren 720S, using a  modified version of its carbon fibre monocoque and twin-turbocharged engine. The Senna is powered by an uprated version of the 720S’ 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 dubbed the M840TR. It uses a seven-speed  dual clutch transmission that delivers all 800 PS (588 kW; 789 hp) and 590 lb⋅ft (800 N⋅m) to the rear wheels. Unlike the previous offering in the Ultimate Series, the P1, the Senna does not use an electric motor in favour of its low dry weight of 1,198 kg (2,641 lb), which allows for a power to weight ratio of 658 hp (491 kW; 667 PS) per ton. Seriously powerful.

Carbon fibre aerodynamic pieces constitute the car, with a large double-element rear wing, double-element diffuser, F1 -inspired roof scoop, front and side air intakes, rear air louvres, and large front fenders. Inside a panel beside the intakes is a small set of mini-canards. Areas of low pressure are accompanied using high-performance radiators. The car uses dihedral doors, like the other previous models in the Ultimate Series, and also has optional windows applied on the lower area of its doors.

The Senna uses a brand-new generation of Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, containing a new compound that has three and a half times better thermal conductivity than before, making the brakes smaller and lighter. It also features a new set of central-locking alloy wheels designed for Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires. Its central design is a new generation of McLaren’s monocoque named MonoCage III, which contributes to the car’s dry weight.The interior largely comprised of exposed carbon fibre, with seats that can be upholstered in alcantara or leather, depending on the customer’s preference. Behind the two seats is room large enough for two helmets and race suits, noting the car’s minimalist and track focused design. The car utilises McLaren’s hydraulic RaceActive Chassis Control II (RCC II) suspension along with double-wishbone control arms.

Performance statistics

In February 2018, McLaren released the full performance statistics of the track-oriented McLaren P15 Senna model:

  • 0–62 mph (0–100 km/h): 2.2 seconds.
  • 0–124 mph (0–200 km/h): 6.8 seconds.
  • 0–186 mph (0–299 km/h): 17.5 seconds.
  • Standing quarter-mile: 9.9 seconds.
  • Power-to-weight ratio: 659 hp/tonne.
  • Top speed: 211 mph (340 km/h) (redline limited).

Production

Every car will be hand-built at the McLaren facility in Woking, UK. with a production run of just 500 units, all of which are already sold. The McLaren Senna is listed at the price of £750,000 ($837,000) with the final car auctioned at a price of £1,916,793 ($2,670,000). Deliveries are scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2018.

1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

1995 DUCATI 900SS SUPERSPORT

DUCATI 900SS Supersport first registered in October 1995, Racing red with bronze frame and 3 spoke alloy wheels, later 3 clock dash – speedo, tacho and temp, original UK bike with 20,000 miles from new. Last of the real Ducati family line. Recent cam belt service and 12 months MOT. Original Ducati Warranty and Maintenance book, Owner’s manual and tool kit along with original passenger seat hump. All MOTs from 3 years old, many invoices supporting the service history. Four owners from new. Start it up to make you smile.

The 1991 Ducati 900SS Supersports were produced with white chrome molybdenum steel frames and white wheels. The swingarms used needle bearings instead of bushings as in the past. Brakes from the Ducati 851 were used on the Supersport vastly improving braking performance. All new bodywork and a pivoting fuel tank were elegantly shaped. The revised Supersports were met with immediate success and became wildly popular. Even though the 1991 Supersport was extremely well developed, Ducati would continue to refine the bike over the years.

From 1991 to 1998, the model was called 900SS, and was available with a full (SS) or half fairing (SS/CR). 1992 saw the addition to the SS/SL (Superlight). In 1994, to further differentiate the 900 from smaller Supersports additional models were released in addition to the Superlight. The 900 SS/SP (Sport Production) was offered to the North American market only. This model had carbon fiber fenders and clutch cover, sound damping material, adjustable Showa suspension, and an aluminum swingarm. The Superlight had the same options as the SS SP but with a single seat and upswept mufflers. The CR’s came with a non adjustable suspension, a steel swingarm, and a narrower 4.5-inch rear wheel and 160 section rear tire. Many riders feel the aluminum swingarms are more desirable.

In 1997, as Supersport sales were declining due to the popularity of the Ducati Monster and Ducati Superbike lines, Ducati attempted to keep the model alive with a few final changes. Yellow was added as a color option, an additional air intake was added as well as new, bolder graphics; namely the “Ducati” emblazoned across the entire side of the Supersport body panel.

In 1998, only 200 red and 200 yellow SS/CR’s were imported to the United States. They featured the last of the Cagiva graphics and elephant but had 1998 spec. motors with new pistons, cylinders and lower mounted oil cooler. A final series Supersport the SS/FE (Final Edition) was also available in 98, but featured the new Pacific graphics, came only in silver with black wheels, had the single seat and upswept exhausts of the Superlight and represented the last carburated Supersport.

The value of a good Ducati 900SS Supersport have been steadily growing in recent years. This is mainly because the bikes are very good – they handle well, have plenty enough performance and character, but moreover, they are a Ducati and Ducati have the same draw in the motorcycle world as Ferrari in the sports car world. If you have a Ducati in your garage, it has a lot of credibility and it’s a bike you will enjoy owning. Now that the best original mid 70’s Ducati 900 Supersports are being sold for £80,000, these 1990s Ducati Supersports appear to be remarkable value for money. My advice : Buy one now, because in a few year’s time, they won’t be this price.

Price : £6,995

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT 1978

DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT

One of the true greats in motorcycle history.

1978 DUCATI 900SS DESMO SUPER SPORT – 6,500 miles from new with amazingly, only one owner, silver metallic with blue decals and wire spoked  wheels. Truly outstanding condition and benefiting from a recent service and detail. They really don’t come any better than this.  These machines are the pinnacle of Ducati history and as such are highly collectible. The 1978 model is generally considered by those in the know, to be the bike to have in a collection AND YOU CAN’T STOP SMILING WHEN YOU START IT..

1975–1981 Square Case Super Sport

In 1975, two versions of the Super Sport were made available based on the 864 cc “square-case” 90-degree twin cylinder motor; the full 864 cc version known as the 900 and a sleeved down 750. 250 examples of each were produced but the 750 and 900 are virtually identical. The 1975 Super Sport continued to use the right-side gear shift, contradicting the 1974 U.S. regulation that all bikes must have the gear shifting on the left side of the engine. Despite this, a handful of right side Super Sports have made it into the United States.

Most of the subsequent changes made to the Super Sport model were to comply with global legislation. Quieter mufflers, relocated gear lever and rear brake and new foot pegs. The biggest improvement was the redesign of the kick-starter. On the 1975 model the kick starter could rotate around and shift the transmission into first gear. If the bike was not on the center-stand the rider could potentially have a very unpleasant surprise.

Because the price of the 750 Super Sport was very similar to the 900, BUT very few 750s were produced with the majority of them being shipped to Australia, Germany or staying in Italy for racing applications.

By 1978 the bikes looked identical, but several significant improvements had made their way into the motor, making them more reliable and solving problems with engine crankshafts breaking. The electronics also improved as well as some minor timing tweaks making the bike run more efficiently. Most notable was a majorly redesigned gear lever that made the bike a lot easier for owners to live with and ride. Most 1978 900 Super Sports also came with a dual seat and lockable tool box. The solo seat was available as an option. The 1978 Ducati 900SS model year bike is considered to be the finest iteration of the bevel drive square case Super Sports. The 1978 900 and 1979 750s were the last to retain close links with the Imola racers and the last to come with traditional spoked wheels. It was also in 1978 that the Isle of Man TT Formula 1 race was won by a 900 Super Sport, ridden by former World Champion Mike Hailwood in a popular comeback race.

In 1979 the Super Sports were painted black with gold accents to appeal to the British market. Cast Campagnolo alloy wheels replaced the Borrani alloy rims and a Mike Hailwood Replica was made available in very limited numbers painted in lavish green and red colour schemes. The new changes, specifically the black and gold paint and cast wheels were very successful at making an ageing design look more modern. The 1980 model stayed essentially the same with no notable changes. Essentially, the Super Sport was being transitioned into the Mike Hailwood Replica.
