Electric McLaren Senna Ride-On is Lando Norris approved

McLaren has revealed an all-electric Senna that’s been approved by its 2020 F1 star Lando Norris. Meet the McLaren Senna Ride-On.

Unlike the real McLaren Senna, the Ride-On is 100% zero emissions, courtesy of two 35W motors.

Powered by a 0.084kWh battery, the McLaren Senna Ride-On will reach a top speed of 3mph. A full charge takes eight hours.

And who is it for? Children aged three to six, which is why McLaren has included a parental remote so it can be disabled if the driver gets too racy.

As with the real McLaren Senna, the Ride-On comes with two working dihedral doors (even the see-through panels in the bottom are fitted). It has LED lights and a working brake pedal.

The McLaren F1-style central seat is padded leather-effect (there’s a safety belt too) and, impressively, the Senna Ride-On is activated by a push-button start which engages authentic McLaren Senna engine sounds.

It even has a built-in infotainment system so young drivers can play tunes via USB device or SD card.

Although it’s aimed at three to six year olds, Lando Norris was still able to squeeze into it for a proofing test drive – “just to check,” said McLaren Automotive, “he was happy with the way it drove”.

Buyers can choose from six colours:

  • Black
  • White
  • Mica Orange
  • Vega Blue
  • Memphis Red
  • Senna Yellow with green accents

The final colour is exclusive to McLaren Retailers and is modelled on Ayrton Senna’s race helmet.

Price? £375, which is rather cheaper than a real McLaren Senna (yours from £750k). Ordering is open now at both McLaren Retailers and specialist toy shops.
