2017 McLaren MCL32

A stunning new colour scheme that harks back to the team's 1960s roots, a restructure in senior management, a new race driver, and a set of challenging but exciting new technical regulations all frame the genesis of McLaren-Honda's newest Formula 1 challenger, the MCL32.

The MCL32 follows in the evolutionary footsteps of its two immediate predecessors, MP4-30 and MP4-31, but it has been overhauled in every area as the design team has looked to capitalise on a series of new aerodynamic regulations introduced for 2017.

The result is an extremely elegant but aggressive-looking race car, fitted with Honda's latest-generation power unit, the RA617H, which has been thoroughly revised by the company's team of talented engineers.

Most strikingly apparent is the MCL32's new colour scheme, which blends old-school McLaren history with contemporary thinking on vehicle livery design. The MCL32 has been exclusively painted by long-term partner AkzoNobel Sikkens, in Tarocco Orange, a custom McLaren colour with a pearl sparkle, and a contrasting satin black and gloss white finish.

The new colouration is a particularly crowd-pleasing touch, intended not only to revisit McLaren's past but also to kick-start a fresh chapter in the team's history.
