An Unusual Supercar with No Windows and Roof

McLaren decided to recall Bruce McLaren's racing car, which was the first to receive an orange livery.

McLaren brought the M6A car to the track of the Canadian-American Challenge Cup in 1967. The car was painted in bright orange, which became McLaren’s hallmark for many years. During its sporting career, the M6A won the Can-Am sports car racing series five times in a row.

McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has prepared a special variant of the McLaren Elva for history admirers. The car is painted in Anniversary Orange, decorated with gray stripes and proudly bears the number «4», as on Bruce McLaren’s car.

10-spoke black wheels features orange brake calipers. The interior has an exclusive trim with an abundance of orange details.

This is not the first reference to the brand's sporting past. Earlier, the company showed a version of the Elva dedicated to the 1964 M1A.

In the ‘60s, McLaren’s racing cars used a 5.9-liter naturally aspirated Chevrolet V8 that developed 525 hp. In turn, the Elva is equipped with a 4-liter V8 with a power output of 815 hp and 800 Nm.
