$3 million McLaren supercar pays tribute to iconic Kiwi racer

Among the Ferraris and Lamborghinis that are plastered across social media, McLaren has managed to build a reputation as the most driver-focused supercars on the market since its semi-recent revival.
And while the British brand claims that its logo isn't a Kiwi, but instead the airflow over a spoiler, the brand hasn't forgotten its New Zealand roots, and has shown off an Elva wearing the same livery as Bruce McLaren's iconic 1967 M6A Can-Am race car.
Completed by McLaren Special Operations, the livery not only pays tribute to one of McLaren's most iconic cars that ever raced, but also Bruce McLaren's countless victories back in 1967 in the hot seat.
While this Elva doesn't wear the same shade of orange as the original racer, a few of the special graphics are present, and sit alongside a painted replica of Bruce McLaren's signature.
Unlike the original, which was just a painted tub, the orange paint on the Elva runs into the interior, and covers the dash, centre console, and the door cards. It works with the car's minimalistic nature perfectly.
This is the second Elva that MSO has shown off in a retro racer livery, with the first being a black and white example which was a replica of the 1964 McLaren M1A.
It's anyone's guess as to how many of these retro-inspired Elva models MSO is going to produce, but if we know one thing, they aren't going to come cheap.
It was previously reported that the Elva speedster starts at just over US41.6 million, which roughly equates to around $3 million here, and that's before any shipping or taxes are thrown into the mix.
Because of this, we can imagine that a special edition car like the M6A replica would cost a pretty penny, but would love to see it come down to New Zealand as a tribute to the late, and great Bruce McLaren.
