Celebrating its heritage in racing, McLaren along with McLaren Special Operations revealed a handful of special editions on Wednesday.
The models that debuted included the McLaren 570S Muriwai, Papaya Spark, and Sarthe Gray, each of which marks a specific time period in McLaren’s racing history. The British automaker has decided to call the collection, “Racing Through The Ages”.
The 570S Muriwai marks the company founder Bruce McLaren’s first racing endeavours in New Zealand. The Muriwai White exterior paint takes inspiration from Muriwai Beach in New Zealand. This is where Bruce McLaren competed for his first race at the age of 15. Additionally, McLaren also named the house he built in Woking, United Kingdom, “Muriwai”, which featured blue shutters and blue accents that extend throughout the original car.

The next moniker in the collection is the second 570S, the Papaya Spark. McLaren states that this name is derived from the exterior hue that goes by the same name. The company said the colour is an extension of the Papaya colour Bruce McLaren used for his racing cars in the 1960s and 1970s.
Finally, the 570S Sarthe Gray is in remembrance of McLaren’s historic win at the 1995 24 Hours Of Le Mans, where a McLaren F1 GTR took first, third, fourth, fifth, and thirteenth place. The Sarthe Gray resembles the F1 GTR #01 that raced on the Circuit de La Sarthe.
Each moniker in the collection sports the motif finished on one 570S coupe and one 570S spider for six cars in total. Each car also receives a GT4 racing stripe and rear wing from MSO. This is complemented by MSO’s 10-spoke forged wheels and a titanium SuperSports exhaust.
