Automotive McLaren Elva

McLaren Elva Spotted In Sepang And Its One Of 149 Units

The super exclusive Elva is priced at about RM8 million and only 149 units are being produced for the whole world

The McLaren Elva was born to heighten every sense and build the closest connection between driver, car and the elements. Impossibly light. Intoxicatingly powerful. Split-second agility.

Spotted recently at the Sepang race circuit, this very exclusive hypercar is right at home on any race circuit.

The Elva pushes our daring design language forward. And proudly embraces the principles set down by Bruce McLaren’s original race conquering open top sports cars of the 1960s which is the M1A, M1B and M1C.

Just like our latest Ultimate Series, the original road-going ‘Elvas’ were lightweight, open-roofed, mid-engined and single-mindedly created to deliver a driving experience of exhilarating purity.

Initially, the decision was to produce 399 units of the Elva, then it changed to 249 units and now it is just 149 units.

Interestingly, the McLaren Elva follows the McLaren P1, McLaren Senna and McLaren Speedtail in delivering a unique experience which in this case the purest expression yet of open-air driving pleasure.

Developing and finalising the exact specification of each Elva is an integral part of the purchase process, with customers assigned an MSO Bespoke Liaison Manager and Visualisation Specialist to assist them.

The new McLaren Advanced Visualiser (MAV) is a key technology in bringing to life ideas and concepts as ultra-high-quality virtual images that show a customer what proposed design themes would look like in a finished car.

By the way, the name Elva is derived from elle va, which means “she goes” in French. The car is named after the lightweight early open top race cars developed by Bruce McLaren
