McLaren to showcase new line of merchandising at 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Article by Christian A., on June 26, 2014

McLaren Automotive is introducing a new line of collection at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed. Clothes, collectables and accessories -- inspired by the styling and craftsmanship of newly rolled out McLaren 650S and the McLaren P1 – could be purchased during the Festival at the McLaren Boutique at the McLaren House.

The collection will be opened by a pair of 1:43 McLaren P1 replicas inspired by two recent milestones. The first P1 celebrates the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Amethyst Black McLaren P1 driven up the hill by 2009 Formula 1 World Champion and McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 driver Jenson Button.

The second P1 pays homage to the Supernova Silver example of the McLaren P1 that finished a sub-seven minute lap on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit. McLaren is aiming to make the car , codenamed XP2R, cover the 20.8 km (13 mile) track – with over 150 corners, 300 meters of elevation changes and cornering forces of up to 2G -- with an average speed of at least 178 km/h (111 mph).

The XP2R was driven by McLaren Chief Test Driver Chris Goodwin. The 1:43 replicas were precisely reproduced employing real CAD data supplied by McLaren designers. The new McLaren collection also features a new range of stylish and comfortable fashions right for the summer.

The carmaker will also showcase a replica Team t-shirt and jacket worn by the McLaren Automotive development and technical team, as well as a black McLaren embroidered cap. McLaren enthusiasts could also avail of the brand’s navy blue t-shirt with a technical drawing of the McLaren 650S Coupé.

The collection includes a McLaren P1-inspired lightweight t-shirt, featuring the signature taillights and blue exhaust flame detailing on the reverse. Also available is an electric blue t-shirt that features the current model line-up. Fans could also avail of the three McLaren lapel pins as well as and a stylish key ring.
