After years of waiting, McLaren has finally lifted the curtains on its latest hypercar, 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 how customizable the Speedtail will be for 106 lucky owners, and some pictures of the car are included in colors we haven't seen before.
As you expect from something expensive like Speedtail, all aspects can simply be specified by the buyer's taste. Interior shades, body color, trim inserts – everything is configurable. Want the body woven with gold insert carbon fiber? Done. Can't be bothered with sun protection? You can get electrochromatic glass tones that block the sun in the windshield without having to worry about flipping a piece of plastic. McLaren says this is just a fraction of the things customers can manipulate with MSO's choices. McLaren even grants every future Speedtail owner a "tailor-made Liaison Manager" to ensure that the car is perfect and unique to its desires.
Of course, having to customize every little detail can be a bit much for some buyers, so McLaren put together three different "collections" to help their customers build their dream Speedtail.
Here's how McLaren describes them:
The First, Urban is a collection of three themes created to give a demanding and refined feel, giving the Speedtail a sophisticated look with calm exterior colors, plus subtle and cool interior tones. One theme is Stratosphere which sees the Speedtail finished in glossy solid carbon fiber with the contour package, designed to highlight the exterior highlights of the car's aerodynamic body. It relies on tailor-made brushed light blue anodized aluminum light, ensuring that each glittering curve on the outside is exposed. The lush details extend to the badge, which is made of platinum with TPT carbon inlay, while the bullet-hooded cabin blends the metallic light blue driver's seat with light gray passenger seats. Complete look is tailor-made marine paint edge with navy blue contrast stitching and tailored brushed light blue anodized aluminum light.
The second collection is appropriately named Visionary and gives a targeted and unmistakable look from humorous, yet striking shades, to lavish and surprising touches. It includes the amazing Astral theme inspired by Britain's wealth of nautical heritage with an interior dominated by timeless navy blue, including nubuck-tailored navy passenger seat and full aniline leather tailored navy driver's seat, tailor made nebular quilt and digital print on nubuck tailored navy leather upper trim. This is equivalent to a vibrant, surprising exterior finished in tailor-made orange with tailored silver pinstripe, glossy visual carbon fiber and white gold 18 carat with TPT inlay paint.
The third collection Dynamic is exciting and modern and makes bold statements with sporty, futuristic and lavish themes. It is epitomized by the Bloodline theme characterized by an unobstructed breeze of tailored red on the outside, with glossy black diamond-cut wheels with a tailor-made light copper edge and silver brake caliper. Inside, the driver's seat is contrasting in full aniline tailored red, while passengers sit on light semi-aniline tailor made white seats. Accentuating athletic theme, steering wheel lock, paddle shifters, window and door bezel surround are highlighted in TPT carbon quartz white.
We can't wait to see what kind of custom designs and unique requests future Speedtail owners will come up with.
