Usually, the cars of limited edition in high-end manufacturers they leave a lot of margin and sell very quickly, believe it or not. 5% of the world is always willing to buy these cars and that is why every time a brand comes out with an exclusive model, the units are all sold.
It has not been the case for him McLaren Elva, the fourth model in the British manufacturer’s Ultimate range. The Elva, announced at the end of 2019, perhaps could have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, however, we have seen other high-end cars continue to sell without problems. Why didn’t you like Elva?
It probably has to do with the fact that it is a very particular car, an old-fashioned roadster-type two-seater, which requires a helmet to be used, since it doesn’t even have a windshield … actually it does, but as optional and rather precarious. Or maybe your potential clients didn’t like your particular design.

To make the offer more attractive, McLaren takes trot out of its alliance with Gulf, to be able to show the classic colors of the lubricant company on some of their cars, including the Elva. We also saw the Gulf colors in the exclusives Senna GTR LM special edition. If you own a McLaren or are buying one, you can also request these customizations from the McLaren team (MSO)
The result is very attractive, since Gulf colors always remind us of classic competition models, just as the Elva pays tribute to the speedy M1A of the late 1960s, though with the Senna’s powertrain, 815 Hp and some aerodynamic effects that allow the air stream at high speeds not to disturb the cabin.
The value of this historical badge will be added to the USD $ 1,690,000 that the model costs.
