Vintage McLarens Out in the Open

McLaren, as a company, has evolved tremendously since its inception in 1964. After being acquired by Ron Dennis in the early 80's the company no longer bore much resemblance to the company Bruce McLaren tried to build. However, that doesn't keep us from enjoying the fruits of McLaren's labor during the Meadow Brook Concours.

Autoblog has posted a great gallery of the vintage Papaya Orange McLarens with the M8 that won so much in the Can Am Series during the heyday of "The Bruce and Denny Show." Other former McLaren racers present were the M16 open wheeler used in Indy Car as well as another Can Am car, the M20. If you have an appreciation for impressive, vintage high performance machinery then hit the jump and check out the incredible gallery of Bruce McLaren's namesake.
