The Ayrton Senna Institute



Never before has a McLaren road or race car been inspired by one of our greatest drivers, but the McLaren Senna bears the name of legendary Formula 1™ driver Ayrton Senna, befitting its status as the ultimate McLaren track car.

While the McLaren Senna will be a star to McLaren road car and motorsport fans across the world, it is also crucial that this new McLaren brings into focus Ayrton Senna’s enduring legacy away from the racetrack, highlighting the incredible charitable work of the Instituto Ayrton Senna (IAS), which provides comprehensive education to the children of Brazil.
