McLaren has revealed their new livery for their cars. Earlier this week, the team announced they were losing the chrome effect bodywork in favour of a “dynamic, predatory, graphite-grey colouration,” expected to produce better TV images for both daytime races and those held under floodlights. In addition, the visibility of McLaren partner names is improved.
This 2010 livery looked remarkably similar, but the HRT ditched it for 2011.
Prior to the start of this year, many McLaren fans were hoping for a return to the red and white style livery that adorned the cars during the previous Marlborough-Honda-McLaren partnership.
Photshop style renders never give the true impression of how the cars will look on track, however, this is a very dark look – though the red/orange fluorescent flashes have been extended.
