Lanzante has a track record – pardon the pun – of converting track monsters into road-going beasts.

The British automotive specialist’s latest conversion is a McLaren Senna GTR.

Modified for road use, it’s just been delivered to its owner in the US – and they’ll be stoked.

Revealed back in 2019, the McLaren Senna GTR is a track-focussed version of the mighty McLaren Senna.

It gets a bespoke aero package with a massive rear spoiler and a large splitter, generating 1,000 kg of downforce at 155 mph (249 km/h), 200 kg more than the road car.

In order to make the car drivable on the streets, Lanzante appear to have raised the ride height and chopped off the front splitter.

They’ve also added new seats and several other additions to make it street friendly.

As if often the case with road conversion, the changes are more than skin-deep.

The McLaren Senna GTR has a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 that pumps out a colossal 814 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.

But, to make it roadworthy, it’s likely been fitted with a beefed-up cooling system to handle stop-go traffic conditions.

What’s more, there’s also a strong chance the suspension may have also been tweaked for a more pliant ride.

McLaren built 75 examples of the McLaren Senna GTR of which Lanzante has converted several for road use already.

It’s understood this particular example is number 72 of 75.

Incredibly, it’s owner Denis Akoyaking’s 14th road conversion to be completed with the British automotive specialist.

There’s no other way of putting it – Akoyaking’s supercar collection goes hard.

It includes a Ferrari F50, Lamborghini Diablo SVR, McLaren 620R, and for daily use a Bentley Flying Spur.

His McLaren Senna GTR was in safe hands with Lanzante, though.

The company, that specializes in service and restoration of cars, also participates in racing in both historic and modern guises under the Lanzante Motorsport title.

Founded by Paul Lanzante in the 1970s, the company is now led by his son, Dean Lanzante, out of their workshops in Petersfield, Hampshire.

Lanzante Motorsport won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans with a McLaren F1 GTR for McLaren Automotive under the name of Kokusai Kaihatsu Racing, leading to Lanzante becoming a service center for road and race McLarens.

Speaking of McLarens and racing, F1 star Lando Norris says he has a $2.15 million car collection but hates driving.

Meanwhile, Dubai Police has just added a McLaren Artura to its elite supercar fleet.
