After years of waiting, McLaren has finally lifted the curtains on its newest hypercar, the Speedtail. It's $2.25-million, 1035-horsepower hybrid with a central driving position and some seriously futuristic looks. The company dropped some info on just how customizable the Speedtail will be for the 106 lucky owners, and it's included some pictures of the car in colors we haven't seen before.
As you'd expect from something as expensive as the Speedtail, pretty much every aspect can be specced to the buyer's liking. Interior hues, body color, trim inserts—it's all configurable. Want the body woven with gold-insert carbon fiber? Done. Can't be bothered with sun visors? You can get electro-chromatic glazing tints that block out the sun in the windshield without you having to worry about flipping down a piece of plastic. McLaren says these are just a fraction of the things customers can manipulate with MSO's selections. McLaren is even assigning every future Speedtail owner a "Bespoke Liaison Manager" to ensure their car is perfectly specced and unique to their desires.
Of course, having to customize every little detail might be a bit much for some buyers, so McLaren's put together three distinct "collections" to help their customers more easily build their dream Speedtail.
Here's how McLaren describes them:
The first, Urbane, is a collection of three themes which have been created to offer a discerning and refined feel, giving the Speedtail a sophisticated look with calm exterior hues, subtle and cool interior tones. One theme is Stratosphere, which sees the Speedtail finished in gloss full visual carbon fibre with the contour pack, which is designed to accentuate the exterior highlights of the car’s aerodynamic bodywork. It’s set off with bespoke brushed light blue anodized aluminum brightwork, ensuring that every shimmering curve of the exterior is revealed. The luxuriant detail extends to the badging, which is crafted in platinum with TPT carbon inlay, whilst the cool-hued cabin blends the metallic light blue driver seat with light grey passenger seats. Completing the look are bespoke navy painted edge with navy contrast stitch and bespoke brushed light blue anodized aluminum brightwork.
The second collection is appropriately named Visionary and offers a purposeful and unmistakeable look from moody, yet striking shades, to opulent and surprising touches. It includes the stunning Astral theme, inspired by the UK’s wealth of nautical heritage with an interior dominated by timeless navy blue, including nubuck bespoke navy passenger seats and full aniline leather bespoke navy driver’s seat, bespoke Nebular quilt and digital print on nubuck bespoke navy leather upper trim. This is juxtaposed with a vibrant, surprising exterior finished in bespoke orange with bespoke silver pinstripe, gloss visual carbon fibre and white gold 18 carat with TPT inlay badging.
The third collection, Dynamic, is exciting and modern and makes bold statements with sporty, futuristic and sumptuous themes. It’s epitomized by the Bloodline theme, distinguished by an unhindered burst of bespoke red on the exterior, with gloss black diamond cut wheels featuring a bespoke light copper edge and silver brake calipers. Inside, the driver seat is contrasted in full aniline bespoke red, whilst passengers sit on lightweight semi aniline bespoke white seats. Accentuating the athletic theme, the steering wheel clasp, paddle shifters, window and door bezel surround are highlighted in TPT carbon quartz white.
We can't wait to see what sorts of custom designs and unique requests future Speedtail owners will come up with.
