The handset is dressed in the signature McLaren colour — Papaya Orange, that is predominant along the bottom edge of the device before fading into the black of the 6T. the pattern underneath the glass back of the phone is based on McLaren’s groundbreaking carbon fibre, the technology at the heart of all McLaren cars since 1981 when it was introduced to the Formula 1 car design, before being integrated into McLaren road cars in 1993. The Warp Charge 30 power unit includes a Papaya Orange braided cord cable.
Encased in the box is McLaren’s logo, the iconic Speedmark, recreated in McLaren-designed F1 AA grade carbon fibre – the same material used in the McLaren MCL33 2018 Formula 1 car. Over six F1 cars’ worth of carbon fibre was used in the production of the Speed marks.
With the device comes a book celebrating the history of both companies, and on the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition, people can enjoy the exclusive software animations, tuned to McLaren’s unique style and history.
