The McLaren Elva combines the British manufacturer’s past and present. Its soft, enveloping volumes recall some famous models designed by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s, such as the M1A, M1L, M1B and M1C, while on-board technology, materials and drivability belong to McLaren’s present. Produced in just 149 units and priced at €1.7 million, the Elva is a two-seater roadster that fits into the Ultimate Series segment, dedicated to the most exclusive McLarens. “With this very special car, we wanted to create a roadster that offered a driving experience that was as in touch with the exterior elements as possible. The sculpted volumes, inspired by Formula 1, create a unique sculptural body between interior and exterior in an innovative stylistic example of what we call ‘blurred boundaries’,” said Rob Melville, Design Director at McLaren. The lines and materials, particularly carbon fibre, run from the outside to the inside creating a unique and connected environment.
