Features blue and orange exterior and interior theme

Businessman and philanthropist Miles Nadal has commissioned the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) to build him a customized P1 that features the legendary Gulf racing livery.

At first glance, one will instantly notice the blue and orange exterior paint theme that runs throughout the vehicle. The exterior paint theme took design cues from the racing livery of the past McLaren G1 GTR competition car.

Up front, orange paint can be seen on the splitter, bumper and sculpted hood. It extends to the vehicle's side skirts, diffuser and rear wing. The dual color paint is complimented by orange calipers for the Akebono carbon ceramic brakes.

The interior was also tweaked by MSO to match the vehicle's exterior paint theme with blue and orange motif along with customized controls and bespoke seat details.

The vehicle is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that comes with an electric motor generating a combined output of 916 PS and 900 Nm of torque. It can go from 0-100 km/h in less than three seconds with a top speed of 350 km/h.
