Featuring interviews from his closest friends and family members, the documentary is an unprecedented window into the life of a true genius.

"Auto enthusiasts across the country have been eagerly awaiting the release of McLaren, and we're so pleased to be pairing up with Gunpowder & Sky to bring this documentary to the big screen this summer," said Bernadette McCabe, senior vice president, business strategy, Screenvision Media. "With lots of original racing footage and interviews, this documentary will transport you back in time and leave you feeling both moved and inspired."
