Norris, 23, enlisted the help of MSO, McLaren’s bespoke design division, to make the limited-edition vehicle completely unique.
He said: “I’ve been able to drive a lot of different McLarens but this is the first car that I’ve designed; this is me in a car.
“I’m a carbon lover, the more carbon I can have, the better but I didn’t want to have my logo everywhere, I wanted something a bit more subtle and MSO has done a fantastic job to realise my vision.”
Norris‘ special tweaks include a one-off blue gloss carbon fibre exterior and brake calipers painted in the same yellow as his crash helmet.
The colour is also on the doors in the form of four stripes, four being his F1 racing number.
He has his initials stitched into the headrests and there is a plaque that has his name on it.
Norris didn’t want his name or brand all over the car, but his logo is on the driver’s seat and there are signatures from him and key manufacturers under the bonnet.
The Brit then cruised out of the McLaren garage for a test drive.
