"Our engineers and designers have long been inspired by nature in our aim to create the lightest and most aerodynamic shapes on the road. We call this biomimicry. And it was on a beautiful day walking around our Woking campus that one of us looked up at the birds circling our lake, then picked up a feather from the ground and placed it on a car. That turned into a conversation with the craftsmen and women at MSO that led to the creation of the Feather Wrap," said Robin Crane, McLaren's Biomimicry Specialist.
