It has been a trademark livery used by different race car marquees and teams all over the world, and thus has reached icon status. Whether it be on street cars, rally cars, track cars, or racing merchandise products such as clothes and watches, the livery has earned its multitude of fans.
The oil company’s famous colors have even been used on the drift-happy Freightliner. As long as there are people out there looking to uncover the McQueen they have deep inside, the livery will continue to adorn the world of motorsports.

Those colors are just begging for a high speed run on the track. That, the SLS AMG can deliver with no second thought. Check out the gallery, folks.
