It’s purple. Well, officially, McLaren calls it a ‘uniquely formulated Mauvine Blue’, but really, it’s purple. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a specially customised, purple McLaren 570S, and it’ll be displayed at this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
There’s more. Alongside this purple 570S, there’ll also be a ‘Ventura Orange’ 570S Coupe sat on the Pebble Beach lawn, and the 650S ‘Le Mans’ edition we told you about earlier this year.
It’s a reminder for the world – some kind of automotive, purple, orange and roof-scooped flare – that Woking has a department full of human beings ready to customise your McLaren supercar to the nth degree.
Remember, McLaren’s ‘Special Operations’ division was launched in 2011 to “provide a bespoke personalization service for McLaren customers”. Which means anything from carbon fibre gearshift paddles, special paint, your own special edition McLaren (remember the one-off, polarising X-1 concept?), the P1 GTR programme or just maintenance for your F1 road car.
With McLaren showing off two new examples of the MSO at Pebble this year, we’ve decided to trawl through its back catalogue of exclusive, limited edition stuff, and we implore you to have a look and cast your opinions below.
