MSO, McLaren’s in-house personalisation division, has created a special edition of the new Elva speedster that pays homage to one of the firm’s historic race cars.

The McLaren Elva M 6 A Theme is the second race car-themed Elva to come from McLaren Special Operations (MSO). The group offers customization services to McLaren customers, particularly unique paint and carbon fiber finishes. The special was revealed on Twitter, and it is quite faithful to the 1967

The one-off special edition's motorsport-inspired livery incorporates a subtle grey racing stripe along the sides, a retro-inspired ‘McLaren Cars’ logo and Bruce McLaren’s signature. The prominent '4' decal is a reference to the Kiwi’s long-standing race number.

The theme is carried over to the interior, where the dashboard, centre console and door panels are painted in the same shade of orange. The brake calipers, also finished in orange, sit behind new 10-spoke alloy wheels, painted in black.

Whereas the original car was powered by a naturally aspirated Chevrolet-derived 5.9-litre V8, today’s road-legal car packs Woking’s range-topping 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. The new MSO edition is mechanically unaltered from standard, meaning it produces 804bhp and can crack the 0-62mph sprint in less than three seconds.
