British cycling legend recently visited the McLaren Technology Centre to take a look around. During his visit, McLaren Special Operations unveiled a unique McLaren MP4-12C with a satin green finish and the Cavendish name etched into the door jamb.
The colour was inspired by the jersey worn by the points leader on each stage of the Tour de France. It isn’t clear whether the car is being used by Mark Cavendish, but we do believe that the color can be offered for customers opting for some MSO special treatment!
This year Mark Cavendish entered the Tour de France record books with the accolade of ‘best-ever Tour sprinter’. The acheivement might well have gone noticed by some in the wake of Bradley Wiggins overall win, but Cavendish acheived something very special indeed. He has 23 stage wins in the annual event, fourth-most prolific stage winner in the race’s history.
McLaren provide support for Cavendish in the form of his carbon fiber Specialized S-Works + McLaren Venge bike. Cavendish rode this bike during the 2011 season before moving to Team Sky.
