McLaren Automotive has taken bespoke customization to exceptional levels with the launch of the motorsport-inspired 3-7-59 racing livery. Crafted by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), this complex design decorates a special McLaren 750S supercar, revealed by a trio of iconic McLaren drivers. The unveiling took place at the Velocity Invitational at Sonoma Raceway, marking one of the most striking moments in McLaren’s 60th-anniversary celebrations.
The 3-7-59 Theme, a nod to McLaren’s ‘Triple Crown’ motorsport victories, required over 1200 hours of expert painting by MSO’s technicians. This livery is a visual sensation and a storytelling canvas that features more than 20 colors to create its stunning exterior. The six customer cars, all either a 750S coupe or Spider, sold out immediately, each one a unique variation of this detailed theme. The name celebrates the race numbers of the victorious McLarens: ‘3’ from the 1974 Indy 500, ‘7’ from the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, and ’59’ from the 1995 Le Mans.
The livery is a vibrant collage of these race cars, detailed with illustrations of the vehicles and the races they conquered. The 3-7-59 is a masterclass in automotive painting, featuring a multi-colored key fob, a ‘shattered’ front livery inspired by the McLaren MP4/2, and sides that pay homage to the Le Mans-winning F1 GTR. Hidden details, including Easter eggs and the evolving McLaren logo, enrich the narrative woven into the car’s design.
MSO’s innovation extends to the supercar’s functional components, with a checkered flag effect blending the orange of the Indy 500 winner with the F1 GTR’s grey scheme, and a blue ‘splash’ on the opposite side achieved through a novel vector process. The 750S’ Satin Black Vortex alloy wheels are matched with brake calipers in colors referencing the Triple Crown victories. Silver leaf exterior detailing and interior features like the Triple Crown logo, graphite Alcantara seat etchings, and hand-painted shift paddles, further honor McLaren’s successful racing heritage. A dedication plaque, complete with a piece of McLaren F1 carbon fiber bodywork, seals its status as a mobile tribute to the brand’s illustrious racing success.
