McLaren has three distinct tiers in its model range: Sport, Super and Ultimate. But the line between the three continues to blur, thanks to cars like the 600LT.

With 441kW and 620Nm on tap, the 600LT is capable of hitting 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds and keeps pulling to 328km/h if given a long enough stretch of road. That's fairly super in essentially every measurable way.

The Senna, on the other hand, is designed to represent the all-out pinnacle of what McLaren can do. It makes 588kW and 800Nm, for a top speed of 335km/h and a 100km/h sprint time of just 2.8 seconds.

How do those differences play out? Motorsport Magazine put the two head-to-head on the airstrip to find out.
