McLaren remembers several cars in its range due to fire hazards, including the latest Halo range, the Senna.
According to a statement from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 2,700 cars will be recalled, including the 720S and 570GT, as well as the lane-focused hypercar.
The recall indicates that a foam pad under the fuel tank used for sound absorption can trap moisture that can corrode over time. This can lead to a fuel leak and if this leak persists, there is a risk of fire. cars from the McLaren range that do not have the foam padding have not been recalled.
Of the 2,700 recalled cars, 500 are Sennas, the full production of the car.
The news isn’t the first time Senna has made headlines for fire-related reasons. Last year YouTuber Solomondrins Senna caught fire after only 11 days and 400 miles of ownership (see image below).
When the senna is not on fire, it is quite a powerful tool. Sure enough, a P1 track is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces less than 790 horsepower. The engine is equipped with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission that accelerates from 0 to 62 in a 2.8 second P1 and a top speed of 300 mph.
All this, along with McLaren’s signature carbon chassis and bodywork, helps the car achieve an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 659 hp per ton.
