“Lando Norris got to drive a $ 1.4 million car before it was launched” – Inside the McLaren star’s insane and luxurious collection of supercars

At the young age of 22, Lando Norris is one of Formula 1’s biggest stars, and boats a luxurious lifestyle away from the racing tracks.

Norris signed as a junior driver for McLaren in 2017, and has been a part of the outfit ever since. In 2019, was promoted to the McLaren F1 seat, after the departures of Stoffel Vandoorne and Fernando Alonso. Current Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz was his teammate that year.

Upon signing his first professional contract with them, Norris was given the option of choosing a ‘company car’ to take home. McLaren has some of the most luxurious and fast cars out there, and the young Brit had a wide variety to choose from.

Norris chose to take possession of the McLaren 570S coupe. It has a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which produces a top speed of 204 mph. At the age of just 19, he became the owner of car that was worth $ 150,000.

It’s definitely a car that’s not as fast as the F1 cars which Norris get’s to drive on race weekends. However, it gives him something spectacular to drive around on, when he’s not racing.

When Norris got behind the wheel of a $ 1.4 million car before it was launched

The McLaren Elva was one of the most exclusive cars made by the British manufacturers. They produced just a 149 of these, and Norris got to drive one of them before it even hit the stores.

This hyper car, not only looks nice, but was an absolute beast in terms of speed. It could reach 0-60 mph in under three seconds. He took part in it’s test drive around the Silverstone circuit, with Sky Sports Pundit Johnny Herbert.

However, it wasn’t a very smooth test run, as he lost control of the $ 1.4 million dollar McLaren at Maggots and Beckets, and went off onto the gravel! Thankfully, neither of them were harmed.
