    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.

    i7 4770K - ASUS Z87-A - 16Gig DDR3 (2x 8G Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 840 250G SSD , WD 320G Blue, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative Audigy 4 - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - MS HABU Gaming Mouse - Fanatec GT3 RS V2 + Clubsport pedals + shifter set - Windows 10 Home (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. i7-4790T - Asus H97-Plus - 16G DDR3 PC-12800 - Gigabyte GTX1060 - 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) - i3-4130T - ASUS H81M-C - 8G DDR3 PC-10666 - Gigabyte GTX750Ti - 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.
