Mclaren Chicago Event Brought Out Unicorns

 

Mclaren Chicago’s Event at the Adler Planetarium hosted the rarest Woking has to offer.

When I heard whispers that Mclaren was hosting an event at the Adler Planetarium I was intrigued. When I learned that a trio of extremely rare Mclarens would be present, I grabbed my camera and left as quickly as possible.

I arrived to a find line of 570S’s on chauffeur duty, and then I saw them. Parked neatly in a row were some of the most exotic and most sought-after Mclarens ever produced. The Mclaren F1 LM, Mclaren P1 LM, and Mclaren MSO HS sat nonchalantly surrounded by velvet ropes.

The Mclaren F1 LM was created to commemorate the Mclaren F1 GTR’s victory at Le Mans in 1995. Lanzante Motorsports produced five street legal GTRs also known as the F1 LM. The car is an icon and to many, it represents the pinnacle of automobiles.

With the release of fifty Mclaren Special Operations P1 GTRs, designed to cater to the ultra-wealthy track enthusiast- again, Lanzante Motorsports began converting them for road use. In homage to the original F1 LM, Mclaren commissioned the final six P1s to wear the LM name.

After some conversation with security I climbed behind the ropes, got close and began to shoot frantically. I was so star struck by the unicorns before me that I didn’t look up when the group of security guards chuckled saying, “this guy” as I crouched and squatted all over the place.
