McLaren Automotive has designed and developed a range of products inspired by, and focused on, the passion of driving. The products are all available from the recently launched McLaren eStore – www.mclarenstore.com  – and the range includes a variety of stylish accessories, clothing and luggage, based around the designs evident throughout McLaren and the groundbreaking 12C high performance sports car. These fashionable and versatile items are perfect for the most avid McLaren fan or those most focused on enjoying the thrill of the open road.

Men’s accessories

The Tag Heuer Carrera MP4-12C chronograph takes direct inspiration from the high performance 12C sports car after which it is named, through the use of carbon fiber for the dial

McLaren has a long-standing relationship with TAG Heuer, and the Swiss luxury watchmaker has produced a special edition chronograph wristwatch, designed in collaboration with McLaren Automotive Design Director, Frank Stephenson. The Tag Heuer Carrera MP4-12C chronograph takes direct inspiration from the high performance 12C sports car after which it is named, through the use of carbon fiber for the dial. On the reverse, sapphire crystal inserts reveal the movement behind the high-tech face. Limited to only 1,000 pieces globally, it is available exclusively through the McLaren global retail network and at the McLaren eStore – www.mclarenstore.com .

Highlighting the pioneering steps made by McLaren is a carbon fiber and mesh McLarenSport mechanical bracelet by Links of London. McLaren first introduced a carbon fiber chassis to Formula 1 in 1981, setting a new benchmark in the sport. From here, all McLaren cars, both for the road and for the circuit, have been built using the lightweight structure. The stylish bracelet includes design features motivated by the components of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 cars, with the woven mesh of the bracelet inspired by the piping used by McLaren Racing.

Bags of space

The three bespoke cases were designed in collaboration with the McLaren Automotive design studio, and are made from an exclusive carbon fiber outer material, with carbon fiber handles and silver or McLaren Orange detail stitching

Designed to maximize the 144 liters of space beneath the bonnet of the 12C is the stylish, fitted luggage set. The three bespoke cases were designed in collaboration with the McLaren Automotive design studio, and are made from an exclusive carbon fiber outer material, with carbon fiber handles and silver or McLaren Orange detail stitching. The design on the exterior of the bags emulates the engine cover of the groundbreaking 12C, while the lining of each case is finished with ‘Space Fabric’, which is used to upholster the seats in the 12C. The cases are available in three sizes – 59cm x 43cm x 22.5cm; 59cm x 39cm x 22.5cm; 40cm x 30cm x 16cm.

Clothing and accessories

A variety of exclusive, high quality leather accessories complement the range, including a black leather wallet and card holder, finished in carbon fiber weave-effect leather with McLaren orange stitching, and a pair of elegant driving gloves produced from luxury full-grain black sheepskin leather, with contrasting McLaren Orange piping
