McLaren 750S with 3-7-59 Triple Crown Theme

McLaren Automotive unveils its most intricate bespoke livery, the 3-7-59 Theme, crafted by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). Unveiled at Velocity Invitational, the stunning design pays tribute to McLaren’s ‘Triple Crown’ victories. Revealed by F1 driver Lando Norris, IndyCar driver Pato O’Ward, and former F1 driver Derek Bell at Sonoma Raceway, the 3-7-59 Theme commemorates McLaren’s 60th anniversary. Created on a McLaren 750S supercar, six customer cars with variations of this theme, sold as coupes or Spiders, will be produced by MSO. The process took over 1200 hours for each unique design.

s we celebrate the 60th anniversary of McLaren being founded, we of course reflect on our legacy of pushing boundaries, both in motorsport and more recently in supercar and hypercar excellence. The 3-7-59 Theme takes inspiration from both of these areas, as a showcase of extreme performance that pays tribute to our Triple Crown success. The most challenging project ever delivered by McLaren Special Operations is a truly stunning expression of McLaren’s industry-leading paint expertise, on a supercar that sets a new benchmark in its class.

The 3-7-59 Theme pays homage to McLaren’s Triple Crown victories, referencing race numbers ‘3,’ ‘7,’ and ’59’ on iconic winning cars. This intricate design, realized by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), merges liveries into a vibrant collage reflecting the victories at Indianapolis 500, Monaco Grand Prix, and Le Mans.

Using over 20 colors, the 3-7-59 Theme showcases MSO’s paint prowess, requiring 1200+ hours for each car’s exterior. The key fob mimics the car’s exterior, setting the tone even before entering. The front, inspired by the McLaren MP4/2, integrates race numbers, and both sides honor the Le Mans-winning F1 GTR with subtle nuances.
