The real McLaren Elva M1A by MSO

Whether it’s fashion or music, what used to be trendy usually comes back. At a sports car manufacturer like McLaren, racing has always been absolutely hip. What comes back is the memory of success. In the 1960s, Bruce McLaren officially shook up the CanAm series. His working machines, each starting with the number 4: The M1A, with which he broke the lap record seven times at the Canadian Sports Car Grand Prix of 1964 at Mosport Park, among others. And the M6A, with which he started the 1967 CanAm season.

Now the colors of yesteryear return – on the new Elva hardcore roadster. An example designed by the in-house customization department MSO is reminiscent of the McLaren M1A and presents its largely untreated carbon body with longitudinal racing stripes in magnesium silver. Red accent stripes set the décor apart from the rest of the McLaren Elva’s color scheme.

The retro design is certainly the most striking commonality between the two, but they are united by even more. Both racers are powered by a V8, though not with the same output, of course. Chevrolet’s 4.5-liter eight-cylinder engine in the 1960s M1A produced around 310 hp, but also had to push only 551 kilograms of vehicle weight. With these figures, the power-to-weight ratio was 1.78 kilos per horsepower. Only 27 examples were made.
