In honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 year reign, British luxury supercar maker McLaren Automotive has unveiled a bespoke Jubilee platinum paint finish and badge 18 years to the day since she opened McLaren’s global headquarters in Woking, the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC).

Now Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Her Majesty is celebrated with a specially developed platinum silver ‘Platinum Jubilee’ paint. It has been matched to the materials used in a special badge created by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), McLaren’s in-house bespoke division, to mark the occasion.

McLaren Platinum Jubilee paint celebrates Queen Elizabeth II
The paint has been colour-matched to a one-off ‘Elizabeth II’ platinum badge created by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), McLaren’s in-house bespoke division, and displayed on a one-off Artura, McLaren’s next-generation hybrid supercar

Both features were revealed on a one-off example of the McLaren Artura, the brand’s groundbreaking new high-performance hybrid supercar, today at the MTC.

Following the development of a bespoke tool and press to create the badge, MSO and McLaren’s advanced coating’s partner AkzoNobel analysed different lighting conditions to define the most suitable metallic pigment combination. MSO’s paint developers then formulated the desired platinum composition which took eight days to complete including durability and application testing.

“It has been an honour for MSO to create a new platinum paint in celebration of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee this year. This special paint, which will be available for customers to select for years to come, will be a fitting tribute to mark this historic milestone.” – Ansar Ali, Managing Director – McLaren Special Operations, McLaren Automotive
