design philosophy

“To achieve their creative best, the design team must feel empowered to take risks. Pushing boundaries, creating the future – it’s not just about listening to research, it’s also about listening to your intuition. Then drawing from the heart.”
Robert Melville

The cockpit of a McLaren is an incredible place to be. Because every last element of our interior design is developed with one person in mind – the driver. It comes back to the very reason we do what we do… to create the most exhilarating driving experiences in the world.

"Our colour and materials designers seek inspiration everywhere. From their experience in architecture, cardiology, performance swimwear and more, to the latest in art, culture and industry. In fact, influencing the team least is the very field they work in – automotive design. Because how can you break new ground if you never dare to look beyond what’s around you?"
