D'Arcy examines the first car to hit the streets wearing the famous McLaren badge.
In 1967 Bruce McLaren was in the midst of developing the M6A Can-Am race car which was destined to compete in the United States. At the same time, the Kiwi engineer pondered an M6-based, closed-cockpit car to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.

While the Le Mans racers would compete in anger, a handful of prototypes were completed and two were converted into road cars, one of which was used by Bruce McLaren himself as his personal road car in the UK.
The McLaren MG GT featured in this episode of Driven Uniques is a recent reproduction, albeit with later technology, built in the United Kingdom and shipped to New Zealand by the current owner.
