McLaren is celebrating a new era of Formula 1 racing now that Honda is powering its race cars.
The British automaker is getting rid of its reflective chrome livery for the 2015 season, marking an end to the Mercedes era and the return of Honda power for its Formula 1 cars. The new livery was unveiled just before this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix and is a subtle, stealthy dark gray with red accents that looks nice and mean.
The company first adopted a silver and black livery in 1997 but added red to the color scheme in 2005 when it replaced the matte silver with flashy chrome. That means this weekend’s Formula 1 race will mark the first time in a decade that McLaren won’t be racing with its iconic chrome finish.
