In an act of homage to its legacy, McLaren has conjured a spectral sextet of the 750S, named the 3-7-59 Theme, in a tribute to the grand triumphs stitched into the marque’s storied tapestry. This limited-run ensemble is the chiaroscuro of McLaren Special Operations’ most ambitious canvas to date, a rendition of the company’s heralded ‘Triple Crown’ motorsport victories—a triptych spanning the Indy 500, the Monaco Grand Prix, and the endurance test of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Unveiled in a pageant featuring the agile hands of McLaren’s heralds—F1 prodigy Lando Norris, IndyCar’s Pato O’Ward, and the venerable Derek Bell—each of the sextet endures a meticulous 1,200-hour odyssey of adornment. Within these viridescent forms—both Coupe and Spider—narratives unfold in hues of crimson and alabaster, echoing the MP4/2, and fields of grey paying obeisance to the Le Mans-conquering F1 GTR. Adorning the rear, a palette of tangerine and azure resurrects the spirit of the Indy victor, each swathe a chapter of racing lore.
To the keen and curious eye, a phantasmagoria of hidden enigmas embellish this automotive canvas: QR codes woven into the portrait beckon onlookers deeper into the machine’s fabled heart, while an electrochromic insignia winks surreptitiously from beneath the airbrake.
A trove of McLaren’s craftsmanship awaits beneath the lustrous skin: the sanctum of the 750S proffers seats arrayed in carbon fiber, brandished with a trio of triumphant crowns, while Alcantara bathed in graphite cradles the driver amid white-stitched contours and bespoke pedals forged by MSO’s artisans. As though cast from the metals of victory themselves, silver leaf adorns the vehicle’s lower doors.
In this year, six decades since McLaren first graced the world, CEO Michael Leiters has declared this the epitome of their paintwork prowess. A memento of triumphs past and the embodiment of supercar preeminence, the 3-7-59 Theme stands as a testament to the McLaren ethos of boundary defiance and the relentless pursuit of automotive supremacy.
