McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, has created a unique color Muriwai White, inspired by the brand’s heritage. Muriwai is the name of the New Zealand costal community where McLaren founder Bruce McLaren won his first motor race and it is also the name he gave to his family house in Surrey, England. With the family story behind it, Muriwai White is a particularly special paint color in the MSO catalogue for the recently launched 570S Spider.
Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only daughter, worked with McLaren paint Partner AkzoNobel to develop a new paint color, initially for the 570S Spider and now proposed for the whole McLaren Sports Series. Muriwai White is white with blue flecks. Amanda returned to her childhood home in the first 570S Spider to be finished in Muriwai White, recalling the importance of the house, that was painted in a blueish white color, that shared the same name.
McLaren Special Operations can create any color a client wishes. As well as personalised paintwork, MSO offers other enhancement options – such as material upgrades – and takes bespoke commissions for ultra-limited or one-off models, taking something that is already rare and making it truly unique.
Many MSO customers like to order bespoke hue, but in this instance MSO is offering the Muriwai White as an ‘à la carte option’ available on any McLaren road car, with personalisation beyond the signature paintwork according to individual taste.
The McLaren family’s former home in Walton-on-Thames is currently on the market with Curchods estate agents, priced at £2.1 million.
