Arrow McLaren SP announced on Monday ahead of the opening day of practice on Tuesday for next weekend’s 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge that streetwear producer Undefined will feature a special livery designed by James Bond for Felix Rosenqvist’s No.7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet entry for the Greatest Spectacle in Racing.
The livery release comes just one day after Arrow McLaren SP’s sister team, McLaren F1 revealed their retro Gulf Oil livery for this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix.
The striking livery that Rosenqvist will race with looks very much like a tiger as the Swede prepares to pounce on his first Indianapolis 500 with Arrow McLaren SP.
President of Arrow McLaren SP, Taylor Kiel commented saying:
Arrow McLaren SP is always looking for opportunities to engage and entertain new fans to showcase this amazing sport to a more diverse audience “To work with Vuse to bring Undefeated, an innovative, exciting lifestyle and streetwear brand, to the track during our sport’s biggest moment of the year, is a cool way to reach new people and help grow our and the INDYCAR fanbase.
The partnership represents a ground-breaking collaboration for a lifestyle brand to design a racecar competing in the Indianapolis 500. Arrow McLaren SP and Vuse identified Undefeated and James Bond as the ideal partner to push the boundaries and accelerate inspiration through the design of a custom livery.
