The new McLaren Elva is a ferociously fast open-cockpit car; an extreme two-seater with a bespoke carbon fibre chassis and body but no roof, no windscreen and no side windows. With every sensory input heightened, this is a car that exists to provide unparalleled driving pleasure on road or track.
A 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 from the same family of engines that powers the McLaren Senna and Senna GTR combines with the lightest vehicle weight1 of any road car produced by McLaren Automotive to give the superlight new Ultimate Series roadster truly breathtaking performance across the board, with extraordinary levels of acceleration, agility and driver feedback.

More than just an homage to an iconic moment in motorsport history, the Elva M6A Theme by MSO replicates that Can-Am conquering icon of 1967 in every detail of its external paint scheme. Anniversary Orange recalls the moment Bruce adopted this legendary racing colour and is adorned with the Dove Grey stripe, McLaren Cars decal and Bruce signature in Blue, and Bruce’s race number 4. Satin carbon fibre and 10-spoke Diamond Cut wheels seal an edgy, 21st century effect.
Furthermore, the stunning Elva M1A Theme by MSO is based upon Bruce McLaren’s superlight M1A that repeatedly smashed the Mosport Park lap record at the Canadian Sports Car Grand Prix in 1964. Reimagined for 2020 the Elva M1A Theme by MSO features a Magnesium Silver racing stripe that sweeps along the sills, runs around the front splitter and rushes up over the bonnet, accompanied by an Accent Red pinstripe. Around it the Elva’s sculpted form is presented in full body carbon fibre, completed by Bruce McLaren’s iconic number 4 racing graphic.
