Racing Through the Ages’ is a collection commissioned through McLaren Special Operations (MSO) by McLaren Beverly Hills, debuted December 11 in California, USA, during ‘An Evening with MSO’ event hosted by the retailer.
The collection, which commemorates McLaren’s racing heritage, features three distinct themes: Muriwai, which celebrates Bruce McLaren’s early racing exploits in New Zealand; Papaya Spark, which honours victories in orange throughout the 1960s and 70s and the continued use on modern McLaren Formula One cars; and Sarthe Grey, inspired by McLaren’s dominant Le Mans victory in 1995 – the only time a manufacturer has won Le Mans on its debut.
Each theme in the collection is represented by both a 570S Coupe and 570S Spider, for a total of six cars. Every car is fitted with an MSO-designed, retailer-fit rear wing and each features a GT4 racing stripe on the exterior hood and roof, complemented by a MSO Defined Black Pack, 10-Spoke Super-Lightweight Forged Wheels in Gloss Black and a MSO Defined Titanium SuperSports Exhaust.
The interiors feature the GT4 stripe integrated into the backrest of the seat and the MSO logo stitched into the headrest, as well as a McLaren Orange 12 o’clock mark on the steering wheel. Each car also features a dedication plate stating, “1 of 6 – RACING THROUGH THE AGES” and comes with a key finished to match the paint on the car.
