Grass-green Porsches, neon yellow Lamborghinis and even luminous red Ferraris will soon fade away into the background on most streets, asthe latest creation from Hamann Motorsport steals the show. With the “memoR”, Hamann – the specialists for unique super sports cars – presents an exquisitely colourful McLaren MP4-12C with typical Hamann bodywork. With the stage set like this, the refined two-seater will transform ugly streets into palatial catwalks, clothing its passengers in magnificent haute couture, the company hopes.
Naturally, this opulent explosion of colour also conceals an aerodynamics package second to none. The standard version of the McLaren doesn’t hold back with its visual charms either, presenting itself as a dynamic mid-engine sports car. Hamann takes up the existing lines of the car’s carbon chassis and supplements its body elements with stylistic borrowings from the 1995 winner at LeMans, the McLaren F1, comprehensively transforming the front end,with new carbon mudguards, air outlets and expressive front apron replacing the original components. The LED daytime running lights and carbon front spoiler integrated into the front of the car are particular highlights here. The newly developed attachments for the side aprons and doors form a visual and aerodynamic link between the vehicle’s axles. Larger air inlets on the flanks of the car, as well as a carbon bonnet underscore the car’s powerful design. Roof scoop, rear wings and the rear apron with recesses for the three tailpipes of the exhaust system round off the imposing appearance of the “memoR”.
During the complex modification process,the engineers paid special attention to ensuring the car’s light weight. To achieve this, Hamann makes ample use of the extremely light – yet ultra-strong – material of carbon, which, because of its positive properties, can be found in abundance in the basic model too.
To perfect the car’s overall appearance, Hamann has fitted “Unique Forged formula” forged rims. These one-piece, ultra-light aluminium wheels with centerlock-look come in size 9.5 x 21 with size 255/30 ZR 21 tyres at the front and size 12.5 x 21 with 355/25 ZR 21 tyres at the rear.
But that’s not all – the car’s interior too is upgraded to become a desirable, unique automotive specimen. Whether you opt for elegant or sporty, carbon or wood, leather or Alcantara – Hamann has just the right thing for your interior tastes. Hamann ‘s own upholsterers can, on request, design whatever the customer desires: from personalised floor mats to a full leather interior, all made with precision craftsmanship. Individually designed and integrated into the “memoR” by the best master craftsmen.
The conversion of a standard McLaren MP4-12C into the memoR starts from €95.000 plus tax.
