An ultra-rare hypercar gets a bespoke twist.
The McLaren Elva is a truly special creation, even among the realm of ultra-exclusive supercars and hypercars, boasting ultra-lightweight construction, plenty of power, and McLaren’s revered racing-derived engineering. With only 149 units of the hypercar built, it’s rare and highly desirable by exotic car collectors, performance enthusiasts, and McLaren fans to boot. However, with bespoke touches, this new McLaren Elva shown off by McLaren in a new Instagram post goes to another level entirely.
The hypercar, commissioned through McLaren Ho Chi Minh City by a art enthusiast and exotic car collector, features black paintwork with orange accents, exuding McLaren’s signature elegance and racing inspiration, however the bespoke excellence comes in the form of artful details created by French artist Hom Nguyen for the Vietnamese patron. In Nguyen’s signature style, the brushstrokes resemble wisps of smoke dancing all over the Elva’s elegantly styled bodywork to form discernible images like faces. The details took 72 hours of work with brush in hand, and as McLaren’s Instagram caption says, it was “worth every second.”
Rare and exclusive hypercars like the McLaren Elva are some of the most incredible cars to own, and when the owner adds the extra splendor of commissioning bespoke details like artwork from an artist as celebrated as Hom Nguyen, cars like this new McLaren Elva become the unfathomable pinnacle of an exotic car collection. McLaren’s automotive excellence and Nguyen’s artistry make this hypercar a dream car in every sense of the word.
