KUWAIT CITY, June 4: Motul and McLaren GT have collaborated for the launch of a stunning new livery design concept — “Ki’Win”. The new design is driven by the pioneering spirit of Motul for 165 years in the world of lubricants and McLaren’s half century experience to set benchmarks on racetracks around the world. Since 2016, Motul and McLaren GT the division of the company set up to develop, build and support its GT race activities have been linked, with Motul as official lubricant partner to the manufacturer.
The prestigious McLaren GT cars use the Motul Motorsport line of products that include 300V engine oil, ideal for use with the McLaren’s V8 Twin Turbo power plant. McLaren GT has a range of models for different types of competition and track use, the 570S GT4, 650S and 570S Sprint models and the 650S GT3 which has won races in every championship in which it has entered including the 2016 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup title. In the 2018 edition there will be two McLaren 650S GT3’s racing, a stunning new livery has been revealed for them which wholly reflects the relationship between McLaren GT and Motul. The new design is by Adrien Paviot, the wellknown and highly sought-after Frenchman who has put his design mark on racers in F1 as well as in record breaking racing cars.
The designer commented “I wanted a special link between Motul and the livery so I decided to find some close-up shots of how 300V looks like on an engine piston and from that I created this very modern pattern. The Ki’Win name is a tribute to Bruce McLaren, a Kiwi, and ‘Win’ as a tribute to the success story of McLaren. The beautiful lines of the McLaren 650S GT3 lend themselves particularly well to the design, which uses the corporate racing colors of McLaren GT and Motul’s iconic red and white which is prominently displayed on the nose and flanks of the car.
