  1. yeah me too. I really love specials like this and think this one is quite well executed.
     
  2. I wouldn't really expect any less from McLaren
     
  3. Going go Gaudy Arabia, I presume?
     
  4. you could very well be right, it should go to that region
     
  5. gonna have to go with no on this one. its something alright, just totally not my taste.
     
  6. jesus christ that's ugly.
     
  7. hoooooly shit its gorgeous!
     
  8. Looks like a McLaren Veyron, kinda like it.
     
  9. shame the interiors red
     
  10. That meeting with Mackenzie and Stephenson lasted for almost three hours. From the pages of notes that were gathered, the design team brought together hundreds of images from the world of automotive, architecture, fashion, design and even film. These were then presented to the customer, and were then narrowed down to a mood book, full of inspiring images from which the design spirit of this unique car would be derived.

    Inspirational cars included a 1961 Facel Vega, a 1953 Chrysler D’Elegance Ghia, a 1959 Buick Electra, a 1939 Mercedes-Benz 540K and a 1971 Citroën SM. There were various examples of architecture – including the Guggenheim museums in New York and Bilbao – plus a Jaeger LeCoultre art deco clock, an Airstream trailer, a Thomas Mann Montblanc pen, a grand piano – and an eggplant. ‘The client liked the shiny texture of the finish,’ notes Stephenson. There was also a black-and-white photo of Audrey Hepburn.
     
  11. why it just have veyron wheels
     
  12. usually i don't agree with woot but that is really horrible.
     
  13. I like it.
     
  14.  
  15. What the hell @ socks
     
  16. not sure about it, don't think i like it tbh
     
  17. ok so it has covered rear wheels ala 80s group C racer, so for that reason it's cool
     
  18.  
  19. more like it has covered wheels like a 30s art deco car and they move or something on their own but the front end is a modern mclaren

    no thank you
     
  20. nah cos didnt 30s art deco cars also have covered front wheels?
     
  21. Wtf that's so awesome. The design cues are so contradictory to the starting car. It's like, a movie car that someones driving on the street. McLaren Excelero.
