McLaren and AkzoNobel on the road

AkzoNobel’s partnership with McLaren is now on the road after signing an exclusive deal to supply Sikkens paint technology to McLaren Automotive for the iconic MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider, as well as the eagerly awaited P1TM – designed to be the best drivers’ car in the world.

This is an exciting extension to the official paint supplier agreement, in place between the two companies since 2008. The high-performance sports cars produced by McLaren Automotive take the raw elements of Formula 1 and forge them into world leading road cars which need to conform to rigorous tests, keep weight to an absolute minimum and look stunning.

Moving forward with Sikkens paint systems for its road cars is further recognition from McLaren of the outstanding quality of AkzoNobel’s paint solutions, its technology-led approach and confidence in the colour excellence it delivers.
