McLaren Elva – die Sammlung

Das Erlebnis

Ohja, wir lieben den McLaren Elva. Sehr sogar. Er bescherte uns eines der besten Fahrerlebnisse aller Zeiten, wir hoffen, wir konnten das auch einigermassen in passende Worte fassen, hier nachzulesen. Es ist aber wohl so, dass wir da zu den ganz Wenigen gehören, die dieses Fahrzeug herrlich finden, zuerst musste McLaren die Produktion von geplanten 399 Stück auf noch 149 Exemplare kappen – und dann kam noch manch ein gutes Stück ganz schnell wieder in den Verkauf. Meist: ungefahren. Und wer dachte, eine gute Investition gemacht zu haben, der hat sich (bislang) auch geschnitten, der Neupreis wurde nur selten erreicht. Eine Sammlung ist das aber auf jeden Fall wert, auch mit Blick in die Zukunft, denn eben: grossartiges Automobil.

It was subsequently registered in Germany and has has just one owner from new. The Elva is offered with just eight kilometers on its odometer at the time of cataloguing, and features an array of attractive features that make it particularly desirable. The Elva exudes sophistication with its unique, MSO Satin Kilo Grey body colour, while the aura of understated elegance is enhanced further by black five-spoke Super Lightweight forged alloy wheels and black brake callipers. In the cockpit, the seats are upholstered in exquisite Jet Black semi-aniline leather, while contrast stitching, piping and an embroidered headrest logo in bronze add some subtle colour. The steering wheel adds yet more elegance with a 3K Satin carbon-fibre finish and a painted centre band in bronze, while Galvanic Grey Brushed brightwork elsewhere adds to the exclusive ambience. These custom options were worth €90,931 upon configuration by the consigning owner».

Purple calipers, a $4,950 option, complement the dazzling exterior color. The mirror caps, instrument binnacle, shifter paddles in exposed carbon fiber, and brushed-finish metal trim in the cabin are also MSO options, as are the bespoke purple piping and stitching on the seats.
