Jenson Button, the 2009 world F1 champ, arrived at the MP4-28's unveiling in the camouflaged XP prototype version of the P1 while his McLaren teammate Sergio "Checo" Perez drove the McLaren-heritage orange coloured 12C Spider.

These two models joined a spectacular grid of racing cars showcasing the brand's history, and kicked off a year of 50th anniversary celebrations.

The parade brought to life a string of race- and championship-winning McLarens from across the decades, including 1970s M8D CanAm sportscar, Emerson Fittipaldi's iconic 1974 M23, Ayrton Senna's dominant 1988 MP4/4, the 1995 Le Mans-winning F1 GTR, Mika Hakkinen's MP4-13 car from 1998, and the most recent championship winning car to wear the McLaren badge, the MP4-23 from 2008.
