The vivid McLaren 750S. According to the McLaren crew, painting this vibrant 3-7-59 took 1,200 hours.


There are some pretty good racing comics that inspire some pretty good road car simulations. For example, the Ford GT seems appropriate in Gulf Blue, and the Porsche 911 Dakar’s Roughroads-née-Rothмans paint option is phenomenal. Likewise, McLaren has plenty of race wins to celebrate its road-going supercars – and why win just one when you can have three?

Enter “750S With 3-7-59 Theme,” launching today at Velocity Inʋitalal in Sonoma, California. The 3-7-59 takes its name from a trio of McLaren’s most important race winners: Johnny Rutherford’s #3 M16D won the 1974 Indianapolis 500, Alain Prost’s #7 MP4/2 won the won the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix in 1984 and the #59 McLaren F1 GTR led Yannick Dalмas to victory in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. Including the Triple Crown, these three race wins were one of McLaren’s most important victories.



McLaren Special Operations says this multicolored 3-7-59 took 1,200 hours to paint. The front of this special 750S is inspired by the red and white F1 car from 1984 with a “crumbled” effect surrounding the Äig 7 on the bonnet. Meanwhile, the rear of the car takes its color from the yellow Indy 500 winning car, although subtle highlights of the race car are recreated as an embossed graphic in the right rear corner. Both sides of the 750S are inspired by the gray F1 GTR that won Le Mans, with the front and rear featuring checkered flag motifs.


The satin-less wheel sits in front of three-color brake calipers – red, blue and yellow – and has three QR codes on each color. Scan one and it will take you to a detailed information page about each respective race car. A further clever addition is the use of silʋer foil for the Triple Crown logo on each door, which is patinated to look aged and authentic to competition.
