Team McLaren is taking its performance off-road on a new adventure with the Extreme E Series.
While McLaren is best known for crushing lap times on the Formula 1 circuit, the British supercar manufacturer is looking to take on new roads in the Extreme E series. McLaren is proud to unveil the Extreme E race car livery along with Emma Gilmour, the team’s first-ever female driver. The announcement of McLaren’s newest driver is a historical moment for McLaren Racing made all the more poignant as Emma is a compatriot of the team’s founder, racing legend, engineer, and innovator, Bruce McLaren. Emma will be competing in the series alongside world-renowned American professional racing driver Tanner Foust.
The McLaren Extreme E launch livery was revealed for the first time during the engagement at Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow. The livery, hand-drawn by award-winning artist and illustrator, Vic Lee, represents the entire race calendar through the four biomes of the Arctic, Amazon, Desert, and Ocean. Illustrations on the livery focus on each landscape, drawing inspiration from the legacy left behind by the Extreme E series, teams, and staff while detailing some of the steps which can be taken to reduce the impact of climate change. The livery also reflects McLaren Racing’s commitment to the ‘Count Us In’ pledge. Count Us In is a global movement of people and organizations to inspire a billion people to take practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint by committing to one or more of 16 steps.
