McLaren unveiled a unique Gulf-Themed Elva at Goodwood SpeedWeek, a private closed-doors live broadcast event recently.
The ultra-exclusive Elva roadster celebrates both McLaren’s history in sports car racing, and the renewed partnership between McLaren and Gulf Oil.
Wearing the iconic Gulf livery of baby blue and orange color scheme, this retro-futuristic open-air hypercar is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 804 horsepower, 590 pound-feet of torque, and gets 0-60 mph in less than three seconds.
Latest in the Ultimate Series, the Elva retains the lightweight construction philosophy of McLaren. It has no windscreen and no roof. Its unique open-air design and McLaren’s Active Air Management System (AAMS) allows the roadster to be driven at high speeds comfortably by directing air to create a virtual canopy over the cockpit.
Only 149 units of the specialty vehicle will be built, making the vehicle one of the rarest McLarens ever made. And with an extensive range of personalization options available, each car will have its own unique identity.
