Grass-green Porsches, neon yellow Lamborghinis and even luminous red Ferraris will soon fade away into the background on most streets, as the latest creation from Hamann Motorsport steals the show. With the “memoR“, Hamann – the specialists for unique super sports cars – presents an exquisitely colourful McLaren MP4-12C with typical Hamann bodywork. With the stage set like this, the refined two-seater will transform ugly streets into palatial catwalks, clothing its passengers in magnificent haute couture.
Naturally, this opulent explosion of colour also conceals an aerodynamics package second to none. The standard version of the McLaren doesn’t hold back with its visual charms either, presenting itself as a dynamic mid-engine sports car. Hamann takes up the existing lines of the car’s carbon chassis and supplements its body elements with stylistic borrowings from the 1995 winner at LeMans, the McLaren F1, comprehensively transforming the front end, with new carbon mudguards, air outlets and expressive front apron replacing the original components. Larger air inlets on the flanks of the car, as well as a carbon bonnet underscore the car’s powerful design. Roof scoop, rear wings and the rear apron with recesses for the three tailpipes of the exhaust system round off the imposing appearance of the “memoR”.
During the complex modification process, the engineers paid special attention to ensuring the car’s light weight. To achieve this, Hamann makes ample use of the extremely light – yet ultra-strong – material of carbon, which, because of its positive properties, can be found in abundance in the basic model too. But that’s not all – the car’s interior too is upgraded to become a desirable, unique automotive specimen. Whether you opt for elegant or sporty, carbon or wood, leather or Alcantara – Hamann has just the right thing for your interior tastes. Hamann’s own upholsterers can, on request, design whatever the customer fancies: from personalised foot mats to a full leather interior, all made with precision craftsmanship. Individually designed and integrated into the “memoR” by the best master craftsmen.
The conversion of a standard McLaren MP4-12C into this piece of art starts at 95.000 Euro plus tax.
