McLaren celebrates Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee with a regal new paint option.
The longest-reigning monarch in Britain, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee year having spent 70 years as The Queen. 18 years ago today, she opened McLaren’s global headquarters, which makes it the perfect time to celebrate both Her Majesty and the innovation and legacy of the McLaren brand with a stunning new paint option, a specially developed platinum silver, aptly dubbed “Platinum Jubilee.”
The color has been debuted on a one-off version of the McLaren Artura at the McLaren Technology Centre. The paint color itself was carefully engineered, with McLaren’s coating partner AkzoNobel analyzing different lighting conditions in order to find the best possible combination of metallic pigment, and MSO’s paint developers spending 8 days to come up with the best platinum paint composition through durability and application testing. To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, the one-off McLaren Artura also features a special “Elizabeth II” badge to mark the occasion, however, the color will be available for McLaren customers to select for years to come.
