Call us biased, but this might be the best looking factory McLaren P1 yet.

Commissioned by a businessman from McLaren Special Operations (MSO), this custom McLaren P1 features the iconic Gull Oil racing livery with its baby blue and orange two-tone shade. Contrasted with the black paint on the doors, front bumper and side air ducts, it’s a three-tone P1 that not only looks classy, but race-ready. The British automaker also did a fantastic job keeping the orange highlights as accents, found on the brake calipers and lower valences.

Inside, small hints of orange and blue are found throughout without either of the colors being overpowering in the otherwise black cabin. Who says that money can’t buy taste?
