The 87th 24hours of Le Mans is set to take place on the 15th June and with it being one of the most competitive events of the year, only the best cars will do. This means that they have to both play the part and look the part. At 3SixtyWraps, we specialise in making sure your vehicle looks world class, regardless of its shape and size.
And in the run-up to Le Mans, that’s exactly what we did.
For the 24-hour endurance competition, we wrapped three cars for the incredible RLR MSport, with a design we had created from scratch. These consisted of an ORECA 07 LMP2, a Ligier LMP3 and a JS P-3 LMP3.
As always with our end-to-end service, our priority is to deliver an outstanding product that meets your requirements and deadlines, communicating with you throughout the process so you’re always up to date on what’s happening.
Our work always starts with a planning process so we get to know exactly what you want. For these cars, we had to cater for various different factors. This included designing an orange and black livery that worked in and around the full white wrap the cars came in. The aim of the design was to convey the fast, aggressive and dynamic nature of the LMPs and would stand out across the different shapes of each car, leaving room for sponsorship logos.
As these cars are on the same race team, we felt our design had to be uniform across all three cars, which meant creating an eye-catching look that worked on both the LMP2 and LMP3 models.
To display a sense of speed and direction, we implemented a streamlined swoosh pattern with a gloss burnt orange, adding sharp points on the nose and front fenders to contribute toward a more aggressive aesthetic. We also took great care to create a distinct nose design that would work on both models. As we started on the ORECA 07 LMP2, we modified the shapes on the front fenders of the LMP3 cars to make them tie into the ORECA 07.
With a passionate team carrying over a decades’ worth of experience in commercial livery, we take pride in our work and use the best materials and technology on the market, with first-rate techniques. For this design, we went for the 3M 1080 Matte Deep Black, feeling it would accentuate the gloss burnt orange and contribute to a greater aggressive aesthetic, more so than just going for a gloss black.
Our service is both fast and flexible – we wrapped these cars for RLR MSport at their site in Darwen and, in the spirit of a 24-hour endurance race, we worked tirelessly, wrapping all 3 vehicles in 5 working days.
