    Rumors say Mercedes will adopt a chrome livery, and Honda wants McLaren to drop the silver as to cut all association with rivals MB. Of course that leads to white/orange rumors, but we'll see. I'd bet white with red accents and/or whatever their primary sponsor calls for if there is one other than Honda.

    The usual and regular rumour that the test car may be in Papaya Orange, a la Classic McLaren. Gets trotted out every year though!

    Sweet news.
    As a McLaren fan since 1978 I've never liked the silver livery. White+Orange or White+Red would be wonderful (they could very well get as close as possible at the classic Marlboro livery) and the Kiwi Orange would be a dream come true. But I reckon the orange car will be just the usual test car livery.

    Seeing that makes me wonder...has any team ever run into a situation where their livery color looks just like another's? I mean if this isn't early 2000's McLaren with some orange thrown in...

    Early 90s: Ferrari in the foreground, Dallara in the back



    In a certain light, even these guys weren't dissimilar:
