McLaren Automotive takes advantage of the Goodwood SpeedWeek currently being held at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in Great Britain to present a McLaren Elva in the colors of the Gulf tanker prepared by McLaren Special Operations (MSO).
McLaren and Gulf recently announced the signing of a new partnership to reactivate a union that began in the 1960s through competition, in the Can-Am series, in Formula 1 and at Indianapolis. Two decades later, the two brands met again at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this time, with McLaren F1 GTR chassis subject to private commitments.
This partnership means for the brand's customers that they will be able to order “Gulf” liveries directly from McLaren Special Operations to dress their vehicles. The proud owner of a McLaren Senna GTR LM, has also recently ordered a livery paying tribute to the # 24 McLaren F1 GTR which finished 4th in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The Elva Roadster, which joined the McLaren Ultimate Series range alongside the McLaren P1, McLaren Senna and McLaren Speedtail, evokes by its lines and architecture, the first sports models imagined by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s, as well as the spirit that symbolized that time.
The Elva, whose bodywork has undergone significant aerodynamic work (it notably incorporates the new Active Air Management System), is recalled by a 4.0 biturbo V8 unit developing 815 hp and 800 Nm associated with a 7-speed seamless gearbox, which will greatly contribute to its top-flight performance (0 to 100 km / h shot in less than 3 seconds and 0 to 200 km / h in just 6.7 seconds).
As a reminder, the McLaren Elva will be produced in 149 units accessible from € 1,709,244 per unit.
