McLaren steals the show at Goodwood Festival of Speed


ONE of the stars of the show at this year ’s Goodwood Festival of Speed was arguably the McLaren stand, sporting a stunning custom P1 alongside a very rare F1 GT.
McLaren honoured the 20th anniversary of their spectacular 1995 Le Mans victory by displaying a custom P1 hypercar, and the return of an extremely rare McLaren F1 GT. The new 570s made its debut on the hill, while back at the show stand fans dribbled over the 650s Spider and the P1 GTR.
The red, white and blue colour scheme of the custom P1, was an idea from McLaren’s in-house nutterists, MSO, (McLaren Special Operations) harking back to the patriotic helmet worn by French F1 legend Alain Prost. The F1 GT, however, had a pristine grey livery to reminisce the late 1990s, when Mika Hakkinen took the F1 world title two years running. The F1 GT on display was one of only three made in order to justify the entry of the car for racing in 97.
