Dec 20 2018 McLaren revives Ayrton Senna's MP4/4 livery for P1 GTR

With nothing to celebrate in the F1 world this year, McLaren can at least count on past gloried to inspire their customers, one of whom has ordered MSO to create a special P1 GTR.

One unnamed individual is responsible for the vehicle you see here.

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has completed a unique new McLaren P1 GTR project to mark the 30th anniversary of Ayrton Senna's maiden Formula 1 World Championship. One especially devoted, and especially wealthy Senna fan is honouring that anniversary with this - a P1 GTR (not an actual McLaren Senna, weirdly) customised by the company's Special Operations division.

Senna won his first championship in 1988 with the MP4/4, widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 cars ever built, and added two more with McLaren in 1990 and 1991.

Fallout from Defense Secretary Mattis announcing resignation
Trump ultimately deferred to Mattis, who opposed the latter, signaling that he could be persuaded by his advisers. It's about values - and, according to his letter, Mattis no longer believes the president shares his values.

Other details include the Senna Brand Trademark on the front splitter, as well as in front of the air intake and each door.

Adding to that is prominent Senna branding around the vehicle, along with a Brazilian flag behind the front wheel arch and barcode logos on the doors. The owner of the auto calls it "Beco" which is the nickname given to Ayrton as a child by his parents. Power is up to a level the owner calls "suitably pleasing".

This could be Samsung's answer to Google's 'Night Sight' and OnePlus' 'Nightscape'
It features the world's very first smartphone quad camera , with each one suited and created to help you form the flawless shot. Few reports suggest that Samsung will be calling this feature as Bright Night as found in the One UI code for Android Pie beta.

We shan't guess how much this bespoke commission cost because, frankly, the sky's the limit, but expect it to have commanded a hefty premium over the GTR's £2 million starting price; it took 800 hours to paint the auto for crying out loud. Style isn't all this vehicle offers; it also has more downforce and power than a normal P1 GTR. Complementing the revamped 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged V8 are modified engine bay shrouds, a Lexan rear engine cover and a 24-karat gold heatshield reminiscent of the F1 road vehicle. There's new dive plates at the front, a wider front splitter, a Gurney flap at the back, with bigger end plates for the huge wing inspired by the end plates on the MP4/4.

The cabin sports Senna bucket seats, an Alcantara-draped steering wheel and dashboard, and a custom driver's helmet painted to match the vehicle body. The Senna branding extends to the door panels and dash, which also feature a thin red stripe.

Trump's wall plan had deep support among Republican voters, but a majority of the wider electorate opposes him, polls show. Postal Service, busy delivering packages for the holiday season, would not be affected because it's an independent agency.
