The flow of the #mclarenelva blurs all boundaries between the interior and exterior, merging into a stunning whole from every angle. Drawing inspiration from Formula 1 the clean, fuss-free body sides and shrink-wrapped muscular shapes come straight from ideas forged in the heat of ultimate competition.
Despite having no roof, the #mclarenelva still generates enough downforce to enhance the incredible handling. A full width carbon fibre active rear spoiler even changes position to maintain the perfect aerodynamic balance and instantly becomes an airbrake to add huge stopping power when needed.
Crafted by the wind. A master class in aerodynamics. Shaped to make full use of airflow. The Elva’s Active Air Management System [AAMS] is a world first. Using two sculpted elements to guide high speed air over the cabin, it creates a turbulence-free zone for driver and passenger for total comfort and control. And despite having no roof, the Elva still generates enough downforce to enhance the incredible handling.
