Four McLaren GT Supercars Get IndyCar Liveries To Celebrate Triple Crown

Supercars / 2 Comments

Winning the Indy 500, the Monaco GP, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans is a big deal.

Arrow McLaren (that's the British automaker's Indy racing outfit) last week revealed its Indy 500 liveries for its four racecars, and now the team has unveiled four celebratory McLaren GT supercars in similar designs.

The liveries call to mind McLaren Racing's accomplishment of the so-called Triple Crown: the Indy 500, the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and these McLaren GTs will be on display leading up to the Indianapolis 500 and throughout May, taking to the streets of the city with racing drivers behind the wheel to get people excited for the big race.


Each car is wrapped in a similar design, and we honestly think the wraps could have been a little more expansive since they were designed to celebrate something no other team has achieved. Still, at least the liveries are clean and simple, and the GT does an excellent job of drawing attention as it is.

One design represents the spectacular F1 GTR that won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, another calls to mind Alain Prost's 1984 Monaco Grand Prix victory in the MP4/2, and the third references the M16C/D used in the 1974 Indy 500. Finally, a fourth vehicle gets a unique black and papaya design commemorating all three victories.


"Our Triple Crown liveries are iconic, and now they've been replicated on McLaren GTs that we get to drive around Indy all month. How cool is that?" said Arrow McLaren Indy 500 driver Tony Kanaan. "The Arrow McLaren team has been doing a lot to make my final IndyCar ride a special one, and I hope we can make history together next month."

Chevrolet Camaro promo cars will also be doing the rounds in Central Indiana in the days and weeks leading up to the race, but if those are not your cup of tea, keep an eye out for the pace car, which is usually a Corvette.
