FAO Mclaren marketing

I see a Gulf car and I want it painted black
No colours any more I want them to turn black

And the seats?

Paint them black and delete this picture from the internet

Yowzers that is awful.

And what's the obsession with Gulf Oil livery? I know the historical significance but why do people slap this colour scheme and branding onto new stuff?

No historical significance at all for McLaren; it was only used in period by the JWA Gulf team on their Porsches, Fords and Mirages.

Must confess I am surprised at all the negative reactions I rather like it, not as much as the Ferrari which is absolutely stunning, but pretty good all the same. Agree a single colour would probably look better - that silver Porsche used on the Carrera GT would look good I think.

oh dear, mclaren really have lost the plot with this.. the gulf livery especially just does not work with this.. but if you put a competition out to ten year olds to do the livery what can you expect.. not to worry, still plenty of dumb people around to buy one....

The other issue with the article is this debuted at Blenheim Palace Salon Prive last month. It's also a model not a working car.
