McLaren Elva
$1,700,000
Named for and inspired by the McLaren Elva M1A race car designed by Bruce McLaren, the modern-day Elva is the lightest road car McLaren Automotive has ever produced. The open-cockpit two-seater features a bespoke carbon fiber chassis and body as well as unique carbon fiber seats. Not only does the Elva have no roof, it is also designed without a windshield or side windows to provide a “true connection to the elements.” But it is possible to drive without helmet or goggles; McLaren has created an Active Air Management System that channels air through the nose of the Elva and directs it at high speed in front of and over the occupants, creating what McLaren calls “a relative bubble of calm.”
