McLaren Automotive’s bespoke personalisation arm, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has developed a unique paint colour inspired by the family story of its founder, Bruce McLaren. Muriwai White, as it’s called was developed in partnership with Amanda McLaren, Bruce’s only child.
Muriwai is the name of the New Zealand costal community where Bruce won his first motor race and is also the name he gave to his family house in Surrey, England. Inspired by the whitewashed walls, deep blue doors and shutters of the McLaren homestead, Muriwai White paint is white with blue flecks, giving it a dreamy bluish hue.
The first car to be graced with this unique paintjob is a 570S Spider with the full exterior carbon pack and five-spoke alloys. Roof down and its red and black interior beams out from inside out, creating a mesmerising contrast that ties in with the red painted brake callipers.
The Muriwai White will officially be part of MSO colour palette, but MSO will fulfil any colour choices of its clients and will tailor make bespoke colour if needed. Much like the Fux Fuchsia 720S which the owner has exclusive rights to the colour.
