Organized on their own turf, McLaren will try to make a good impression at this year Goodwood Festival of Speed. The supercar manufacturer will have two cars on display and running down the hill climb.

The first is entered by McLaren Automotive as part of the Supercar Run and is being fitted with a special livery inspired by James Hunt’s famous race helmet, in honour of the 40th anniversary of his Formula 1 championship win. 

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s Driver’s Championship, as well as the fourth owners’ gathering for the McLaren P1 GTR earlier this week at Silverstone, a one-off livery has been created by McLaren for the entry of the car in this year’s Festival. Its base colour of black teamed with red, yellow and blue stripes echo those of James Hunt’s race helmet, colours resembling his school colours. And among those gripping its Formula 1-inspired steering wheel over the weekend will be McLaren P1 GTR Driver Programme Mentor, Bruno Senna. 

The second is entered by Lanzante and is an extensively modified version of the original which was initially created by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). 
 
The most obvious difference between them is that the Lanzante entrant is street legal, meaning the Lanzante team will attempt to set the fastest time of the weekend for a road car with 1999 Indy 500 winner and McLaren test driver, Kenny Bräck, behind the wheel.

Visually, the Lanzante car resembles a McLaren P1 GTR but with modifications for road use. These updates have been designed and developed by Lanzante.
