Lot Number
#2
Original
Gooding & Company
Auction House
Chassis No. SBM15ACA1KW800247. Amethyst Black Carbon over black interior. 3994-ci, 789-hp twin-turbo V-8. 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. Specialorder Amethyst Black carbon-fiber finish, and window sticker.

Evaluation: Original | One of 500 Sennas. 88 miles. Barely a year old.

Bottom Line: According to Gooding & Company, all the extras on this ­Senna brought total cost when new to $1,339,306. (The special-order “Visual Carbon Fiber” finish reportedly cost $248,000 alone­—enough to buy a brand-new Bentley Continental GT with some options.) The buyer here basically got them for free, paying within 2 percent of the Senna’s base MSRP of $959,000. Since hitting the auction circuit, a couple of Sennas have sold in the $1.4 million range, but several more have failed to meet reserve. The most recent sale was in Scottsdale for $946,000. The initial buzz seems to have worn off, and with the 765LT now out, the Senna is no longer the latest and greatest McLaren. We can’t help but think that if the seller was going to take such a big haircut here, they should’ve at least taken it to the track and had some fun.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
