Thats so cool. I've always felt Mcl should focus on this level of car, sell fewer of them and charge more for them. Punters today love exclusivity and to express themselves through wonderfully unique projects like this. Look at what Singer are charging for old beetles today (much love) but this is space age stuff. I'd not want to use one on track I'd get very precious. Its not the stone chips etc or anything just other less courteous or novice track users. One thing I noticed on track is how much quicker the Macs are generally compared to everything else and their ability to brake very very late compared to other marques. Seen some hairy stuff overtaking into corners from high speed straights the Macs literally have no choice they scrubbing so much speed off. I'm up north of Scotland end of the month driving some fab roads in a convertible 911 turbo s with other half (her car). I'd love to be following in this. Instead i get the SUV supply truck with 4 kids in toe - not fair smile

I do love what Singer do. Did you know that a LOT of their UK team are ex-MSO?

I know what you mean about going on track, but I have already booked MSO 1 to go on track next month. It just has to be done smile

Enjoy Scotland - I was there just a few weeks ago in this car. And I was in the Highlands in May in my i8, just before I collected the McLaren.

clap yep nothing like winning best over all car at a concours. Quite embarrassing picking up the trophy in front of everyone. I remember one CGT owner looking very peeved indeed my old beetle had won I almost fell of my chair when they called my name out. My name on the trophy though I am immortal laugh

It is. My first and last I genuinely prefer just driving them. It was an elderly crowd..

But like this LT if you've got it flaunt it baby. Kudos for tracking it smile

Reading the latest edition of Living North I came across an article mentioning the car along with other Mclaren’s at a pub in Humshaugh.

That was a lunch stop during an owners club event to the North of England and Southern Scotland. 32 McLarens if I recollect.

Had a spirited joust with a 765LT coupe a couple of weekends ago. He certainly had the advantage in acceleration, straight line speed, braking, corner entry, mid-corner speed and exit traction but we were pretty close on parking☺️
