Say Hello To The World’s Only Chameleon Full Carbon Fiber McLaren P1

The world’s first chameleon colored carbon fiber McLaren P1 has landed in the United States after its extensive transformation at the company’s technology center in Woking.

Owned by Manny Khoshbin, this P1 was originally painted white but following McLaren’s announcement that it was offering customers full carbon bodies, Khoshbin had the car sent back to the UK. Rather than opting for a colored shade of carbon fiber, like green, the businessman went for something we’ve never seen before, color-shifting carbon.

There are at least two P1s with chameleon paint schemes, one residing in the UK and the other owned by baseballer CJ Wilson but Manny’s is the only with a complete carbon body and the results really are quite extraordinary.

Now dubbed the MK Edition, the colors of his P1 change depending on the light and viewing angle. From some angles, the carbon fiber has a pink hue but from others, it is orange and yellow with hints of green.

While we haven’t seen the car in person, we’re sure that photos or videos simply don’t do it justice.

    wow.

      I know right? that close up shot at the end where you see carbon fiber through paint was amazing.

    This is actually very cool. It isn’t my favourite chameleon shade (TVR’s purple and blue chameleon shades are much better looking), but it’s desireable nevertheless.

    • Axiom Ethos

      I agree, the one’s TVR did are timeless

  • Erzhik

    I always wonder. The guys standing around the car like that for 20-30 minutes, what are they actually waiting for?

  • Vassilis

    Nuh. Too flashy for me. My favourite P1 colour remains that black-purple.

  • Mokes Oz

    Good luck trying to get that fixed of it has a small damage. Will it have to go back to the UK to get it fixed ?
