The McLaren Senna is a car incredibly difficult to get hold of. The Woking manufacturer is only building 500 of them and every single one was spoken for before the general public even knew that the Ultimate Series car even existed.

Even if you did manage to get your name on the list, you'd have to dig deep for £750,000 (plus much more for options and personalised details) in order to have one in your garage.

Thankfully, for us who don't have mates at McLaren to get us a foot in the door, there's one for sale. Unfortunately for us though, it costs more than it did when new.

The car, being offered by Van Rooyen in Warrington in the north west of England – coincidentally about 90 seconds away from where this article is being written – is up for sale at £1,299,990. If, like me, you don't quite have all the money up front, VR do offer a finance option, for just £18,805 (and 66p) a month – which is more than my daily driver cost me.

It's not difficult to see why cars like the Senna cost so much. As well as all the goodies specified on this particular model, the follow up to the P1 is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 putting out just under 790bhp, or 659bhp per tonne. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which all helps propel it from 0-62 in a P1-equalling 2.8 seconds and onto a top speed of 211 mph.

Maybe if we all chip in a fiver we'll be able to share it?
