McLaren and McLaren Special Operations (MSO) have unveiled the new “Racing Through the Ages” collection. This new collection was put together in cooperation with McLaren Beverly Hills, who debuted the collection at their “Evening with MSO” event on December 11.
This new collection was created to celebrate the English automaker’s famous racing heritage. There are three different themes in the collection that were meant to commemorate specific feats in McLaren’s racing history. They include:
- Muriwai: Celebrates Bruce McLaren’s early racing in New Zealand. Bruce McLaren took part in his first race when he was just 15-years-old. The name comes from the name of the house he chose for the house he built in Woking.
- Papaya Spark: Chosen to commemorate the famous orange color used in Formula One cars in the 1960s and 1970s. Since then, many McLaren race cars have had successes in orange liveries.
- Sarthe Grey: Commemorates McLaren’s 1995 Le Mans victory, which was the only time a manufacturer won Le Mans during their debut. The two cars in this theme were meant to emulate F1 GTR #01.
There are a total of six cars in the collection and two models, the 570s Coupe and 570S Spider. Each car comes with a rear wing, GT4 racing stripe, the MSO Designed Black Pack, 10-Spoke wheels in Gloss Black and the MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust. Inside are a few special touches as well, like the GT4 stripe on the backrest of the seat, McLaren Orange 12 o’clock mark on the steering wheel and a dedication plate that reads “1 of 6 – RACING THROUGH THE AGES.”
