i know im VERY stupid....but answer me this - why would anyone in their right mind buy a mclaren senna at three quarters of a million pounds when you could have the absolutely beautiful new ferrari pista for a third of that....?

I think the P15 would/will probably look mental on the road despite not been particularly pleasing to look at in pics. I'm sure those buying (or chosen to buy) them will have no issues affording both. Clearly the P15 will be a new benchmark in road legal trackcar performance until the hypers from Merc and Aston turn up.

It’s not difficult. It’s because they can.

If you try and analyse why people do this, you could question watches that are 5 and 6 figure sums. Why buy them when your phone tells you the time? It’s because rich people can spend the money. Logic doesn’t come into the question.

it will also be a decent investment for them, values will only go one way, and thats up.

i did quite like the new range of "maclarens" apart from the amount of common parts they use underneath but this new one is quite frankly horrendous that rear spoiler sort of spoils it LOL Dead

I think its an insult to the Senna name personally its horrible. Now if the P1 was called the Senna then that would have been fine. Aero is taking over from style and it's spoiling the look of cars.

I’d hardly call one car prioritising aero to sacrifice looks as ‘taking over’.

I guess you're all correct, I'm coming at it from the wrong angle. They are bought because they can be affordable for those buyers, performance or ability or beauty doesn't come in to it.

I just can't see anything to improve on that new ferrari...
