At O’Gara we believe in pushing boundaries and doing things our own way. When the McLaren Elva was first presented to us, we saw not only the forward thinking design and aesthetics of the roofless roadster, but the heritage as well. The classic open top of the early cars Bruce McLaren raced, inspired one of our team to create a series that embodied that heritage. Enter Parris Mullins. Champion race car driver, long time member of the O’Gara team and a trusted advisor to executives and collectors alike. Mullins took on the task of creating a capsule of car designs in partnership with the incredibly talented concept designer, Marco van Overbeeke. Each Elva design is derived from famous racing liveries of the past, including one that was driven by “The King” himself.
The gold and white design baring the number 5 pays homage to the movie “Spinout”, featuring Elvis Presley getting behind the wheel 1965 Elva M1A group 7 car.

ABOUT THE ELVA
The Elva pushes McLaren’s 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 – the M1A, M1B and M1C. Just like the latest Ultimate Series, the original road-going ‘Elvas’ were lightweight, open-roofed, mid-engine and single-mindedly created to deliver a driving experience of exhilarating purity.
In the new Elva, form follows function more closely than ever. Clean, fluid lines and bold shapes flow together and blur the boundaries between inside and out. Cohesive design that makes a perfectly balanced whole.
To make sure you get maximum enjoyment from the elements, the Elva has a pioneering active air management system [AAMS]. It works by guiding high speed air over the open cabin, creating calm around driver and passenger. It means you get the full adrenaline rush, undistracted.
Pared back, honed and highly advanced, the Elva is the lightest road car that McLaren Automotive have ever made. The results are felt in a heartbeat. Agility, telepathic responses and raw performance delivered with unique poise. Nothing connects you so completely to the drive. In every sense.
