    McLaren GT3 Paint Schemes?

    Why does that vehicle only have 6 paint schemes while all the other GT3 vehicles have dozens? Any particular reason for this?

    Because that was what was agreed with McLaren as part of the Licensing.

    Ryzen R7 3800X - Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite - 16Gig DDR4 (Ballistix Elite 3600) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 860 250G SSD, WD 6T Black, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - Gigabyte GM-M6880X Gaming Mouse - Fanatec GT3 RS V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Pro (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. Ryzen R5 3600X - Asus Prime X570-P - 16G DDR4 (Crucial Ballistix 3200) - EVGA RTX2060 - iiyama Prolite E2607WS - Oculus Rift CV1 - W10 Pro (64 bit) - xbox360 pad or Logitech DFP (all at stock speeds)

    HTPC - For testing of Steam Big Picture Mode (Hopefully from Media Portal 2) - i5-4590S - ASUS H81M-C - 8G DDR3 PC-10666 - Gigabyte GTX1050Ti - Windows 10 Home (64 bit) - xbox360 pad

    True, McLaren GT3 doesn't have custom livery either.

    Fair enough. However, why the 6? Why a specific number, for that matter? I was always intrigued.

    SMS created more but there were lots of licensing restrictions regarding which liveries they were allowed to use in the end.
    I'm pretty sure that I'm not allowed to tell you these restrictions so I'll have to leave it at that unfortunately.

    Ok, that's cool. I understand the restrictions, but I was just curious, that's all.
