Stradman amazed by Post Malone’s $1.7M limited-edition McLaren Senna

There aren’t many McLaren Sennas in the world, meanwhile, there are even less versions of the experimental prototypes the company used to create the roadster – and the Stradman was completely blown away by Post Malone’s hypercar after getting a closer look.

The YouTuber was visited by Post Malone’s father, who had in tow the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, which is going for an asking price of $1.7 million. It’s a much heftier price than what the base model retails for, at $1,000,000.

As you can imagine, this limited-edition commissioned prototype is meant to be appreciated with the keys out of the ignition, to borrow a phrase. See, the keyless ignition on the Master of Monaco’s headliner doesn’t get much action, as Stradman noticed the car had only traveled 145 miles in its life.

But the spirited vlogger was still looking to take it for a (small) drive around the block to hear that 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 block roar, something the car doesn’t normally get to do.

The Master of Monaco is a 1-of-1 car, with slight differences to its sister McLaren Senna XLs (background).

The car is heavily rooted in McLaren’s racing history, and it’s got an aggressive aesthetic to complement it’s equally boisterous output. According to the company, the Senna XP goes 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, powered by the 789 horsepower engine and 590 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, the interior would also appeal to the race car driver in us all, seeing as the pair of friends were grinning ear-to-ear from the incredible sights and sounds of the cabin.

Stradman likened the experience to being in an “alien spaceship” for the cars adjustable center-console, lush red carbon fiber throughout the vehicle, and the ‘race mode’ transformation of the dashboard.

The car was clearly made for only those who can afford it, while also being a true McLaren historian’s dream ship.

The ‘Master of Monaco’ 1-of-1 label is in honor of McLaren’s six wins on le Circuit de Monaco from 1989 to 1993. The car has ample looks and meaning to get car fanatics like Stradman hyped to ride in it, and the pair were enjoying every second of it.

McLarens are already known for their flash and glory, and the Youtuber was floored after he experienced the Senna in its pinnacle XL form.

The Weeknd is one of the standout musicians of this generation, with several number-one hits. It turns out true to his music, he loves fast cars, and his car collection is enough to make anyone jealous.

One of the standout lines from Abel Makkonen ‘The Weeknd’ Tesfaye’s number-one single ‘Starboy’ is “we don’t pray for love, we just pray for cars.” It seems that the Weeknd got what he was asking for, as his garage reads like an A-list gathering of exotic cars.

From supercars to luxury vehicles, the Weeknd’s car collection is certainly one to be jealous of; We’ve picked out some of the highlights for you to enjoy.

It turns out his P1 is cleaner than your church shoes.

The Weeknd’s supercar collection

Many fans wondered if the McLaren P1 he sings about in Starboy is his. Well, it turns out he does indeed own the orange McLaren P1 seen in the video. This $1.2 million, 903hp hypercar forms part of the ‘holy trinity’ of hypercars, along with the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918.

Clearly, the P1 is Abel’s favorite of the trio, as it found a place inside his incredible custom-built, mirror-floored garage.

Alongside his P1, he also owns another outlandish supercar – a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. This extravagant Lamborghini packs 690hp from its naturally-aspirated V12 engine. Costing over $517,000 the SVJ is one of the most extreme road-going Lamborghinis ever made.

Abel Tesfaye’s exotic cars

As well as his enviable garage of supercars, The Weeknd also has a number of luxurious ‘exotic’ vehicles to complement his brash, visceral performance car collection.

One particular highlight is his Bentley Mulsanne. This ultra-plush ride is equally suited to driving and being driven in. Costing just over $300,000, it is likely that The Weeknd’s Mulsanne is blue, judging by the line “I’m in the blue Mulsanne bumping New Edition” in the song Starboy.

Alongside the Bentley, he also reportedly owns an AMG G63. A typical celebrity’s car, the G63 blends off-road performance with incredible power from its twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 577hp.

He also apparently has a love for the more ‘retro’ things in life too, as Abel reportedly owns a classic 1980’s Porsche 911. While exact details on this car aren’t clear, there’s no doubt it looks stunning sat next to his modern collection.

While his collection isn’t the biggest, nor the most expensive at around the $3m mark, it’s fair to say anyone would be envious. He clearly loves his cars, as he sings about them often enough!
