Ground-breaking carbon fibre construction; advanced aerodynamics and pioneering hybrid powertrain technologies. The McLaren P1 is just as stunning now as when it was debuted in 2013. #25DaysOfMcLaren
There are few more experienced in the world of open cockpit driving than Fernando Alonso. So we were keen to get his thoughts on the new McLaren Elva Join him and McLaren Automotive Design Director Rob Melville for a look at our new open cabin ultra lightweight road car. #McLarenElva
Just 350 will be made in a choice of three McLaren racing colours – McLaren Orange, Silica White and Onyx Black – all with GT4 race livery as standard. This is the #McLaren620R.
When you start pushing the car, that’s when things become almost magical. You can push limits beyond what you thought possible. #SennaGTR
From the moment it starts up and you feel the vibration of the massive 4.0L twin-turbo V8 engine beneath your seat, it’s already a momentous experience. #SennaGTR
It's day seven of our #25DaysOfMcLaren Boulevard tour. Here's another look at the car that started it all: Bruce McLaren's Austin 7.
Extraordinary advanced aerodynamics makes the McLaren #SennaGTR a true game-changer. It employs the kind of ground-breaking technology first developed in Formula 1™.
The thumping heart of the #SennaGTR is the M840TR 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It generates 825 PS and 800Nm of torque. Couple that power with our immensely strong and light carbon fibre tub the results are simply awe-inspiring.
The lightest McLaren road car ever made proves that less is more. Loud and clear. #McLarenElva
The Elva takes you to the razor-edge of driver engagement. Nothing connects you more closely to the thrill. The view is always epic…uninterrupted pure driving excitement. #McLarenElva
This is the next chapter in the McLaren design story. It’s about bold forms, clean lines and fluid movement. The flow blurs all boundaries between the interior and exterior, merging into a stunning whole from every angle. #McLarenElva
As we continue our tour of The Boulevard at McLaren Technology Centre it’s time for one of the proudest chapters in our long history of innovation. #25DaysOfMcLaren
An experience this intense shouldn’t be legal. And it isn’t… not on the road, at least. Which means, of course, the McLaren #SennaGTR is free to be a 100% focused track star.
enters its third year in 2020 and, once again, will see four of the most exciting youngsters in motorsport fighting for top honours at the wheel of a McLaren 570S GT4. _ Having been shortlisted after an impressive 2019 season, @KatieMilner_ (UK), @MichaelBenyahia (USA), @Harry_Hayek (AUS) and @AlainValente (CH) shone during the assessment programme to secure one of the coveted race seats for the 2020 season. As in 2018 and 2019, the programme will be run by Customer Racing team @TolmanMotorsport with two cars running in the @British_GT Championship. Alongside track running, the drivers were individually assessed on data analysis and telemetry, working with the engineering team and driver coaches. Off track, each of the drivers were subjected to a mental and physical assessment with media interviews carried out in conjunction with the team from @motorsportcom and fitness tests run by programme partner @iZonedriverperformance. “The aim of the Driver Development Programme is to work with each of the four successful candidates throughout the year and help build them into a more complete driver, both on and off the track. Each one of the drivers who took part in the assessment is a true young professional and extremely capable and competent. There is no denying they are all very quick behind the wheel, but the driving is only a small part of what it takes to build a successful and sustainable career in motorsport. For Katie, Michael, Harry and Alain the work really starts now, and we will work with them – and push them – to build and improve their whole skill-set. Throughout the year, the team will work on a number of areas including personal fitness, nutrition, engineering expertise, racecraft and PR to help them develop into a complete package as a racing driver.” Danny Buxton, Drive Team Leader, McLaren Automotive. The McLaren Automotive Driver Development Programme is partnered with Prosource, @RichardMilleOfficial and @Pirelli_Motorsport once again for the 2020 season. @mclaren_customerracing
Inside the #SennaGTR, the interior is stripped back and completely driver focused. The technology inside though, is far from basic. Take the Anti-Collision Radar system, for example. Because your peripheral vision is reduced by a race helmet, the system feeds you vital live information about the position and distance of other cars around you. It also alerts you to cars passing on the left or right. #McLaren
Next up on our tour of the Boulevard at McLaren Technology Centre is the car that started it all. Bruce McLaren’s 1929 Austin 7. It was bought for him in pieces by his father for $110. Bruce entered the car in his first race in the 1954 which he won and the rest, as they say, is history. #25DaysOfMcLaren
A masterpiece of carbon fibre construction. At a mere 1,188 kg (dry weight), the #SennaGTR is the lightest car in an already extremely lightweight range.
1000KG of downforce. Just imagine what that would feel like. The #SennaGTR is simply the most extreme, engaging and raw track experience.
