This is a Gulf-liveried McLaren P1

By topgear, 23 December 2014


We're used to juicy looking stuff coming out of McLaren's MSO division now.

If you need a reminder, McLaren Special Operations is responsible for one-off customer cars, limited-run specials and the utterly barmy P1 GTR. As well as the [insert your own adjective here] X-1...

Today it has introduced us to this, the Gulf-liveried P1. It's not officially called that, but McLaren does go as far as saying it's inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR racer - which itself came daubed in Gulf logos.

Blue and orange is the order of the day, then. As well as a familiar - and superb - two-tone exterior treatment, which even extends to the underside of the rear wing, there are orange brake calipers, blue and orange piping on the Alcantara steering wheel rim, and similar colour treatments for the P1's glory buttons, including its DRS push-to-pass aceness.

Suitably proud of his creation, the wealthy owner in question is happy to be named, too. McLaren declares this P1 has been "commissioned by businessman and philanthropist Miles Nadal".

Miles, we like your work...
