Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

There's no hybrid system here, just good old-fashioned gasoline putting out a substantial 789 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

All of that power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The intake is located above the cockpit, which you'll definitely notice every time you step on the gas.

Every one of the Senna's body panels is carbon fiber, as is its chassis, which contributes to its low curb weight of just 2,641 pounds.

Only 500 examples will be built, starting in 2018.
