Too Many McLarens for Me to Know

It doesn’t seem that long ago that there was interest in McLaren starting to develop road cars.  I guess the first time I saw one on the road, we still lived in Chicago, so it has been a while.  However, it still feels very recent.  What I haven’t done is pay much attention to what the different models are.  Consequently, when I am at Exotic@RTC, there are a bunch of McLarens from the local dealer as well as some local owners and I have absolutely no idea which model is which.  Moreover, I don’t know whether or is a base model of “little” interest or a particularly rare example.  I might recognize a Senna by the huge wing but haven’t seen one of those yet.

Instead I just wander around and look at the various cars to see which ones I like the look of.  Their styling is generally pretty nice.  Some of them have more interesting shaping for the aerodynamics (no surprise that is something I am focused on) but the simpler shapes are nice too.  Seeing which colors they bring can be fun too.  Some of the colors are rather vibrant/gaudy.  I was quite interested in one vehicle that was originally painted red but had been wrapped in a matte gray film with just some elements of the red visible around certain areas.

Since I don’t know which model is which, I guess it is probably safer for me to just not bother buying one for now.  I’ll have to do my research to make sure I don’t buy the wrong one.  That would be so embarrassing…
