The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance has become not only a miniature auto show complete with new vehicle reveals and press conferences, but also a platform unveiling special editions of existing cars. For its part, McLaren will debut a duo of one-off 570S Coupes this week in Monterey.
Built by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) to demonstrate its range of bespoke options, the 570S Coupe by MSO you see above will wear a specially formulated
Plum Crazy Mauvine Blue paint finish over an interior finished in Carbon Black leather with matching detail elements. The other 570S is finished in Ventura Orange and will display a number of MSO Defined interior options that are available on the Sports Series.
McLaren will also show the track-focused version from the Super Series range in the form of the 650S Le Mans, which appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this summer. Designed to celebrate the 20th aniversary of the company’s victory at the famed endurance race, just 50 examples of the 650S Le Mans will be built (and all of them are already sold out, as you’ve probably guessed).
McLaren unveiled the 570S coupe before its public coming-out party at the New York auto show this week. The newest British supercar will be part of the two-car McLaren Sports Series, which falls below …
The 650S Le Mans will also make an appearance at Pebble after debuting at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
“With a mix of subtle design traits, the 650S Le Mans adds a modern twist by blending the iconic lines of the McLaren F1, and heritage features such as the wing louvres and the roof-mounted air intake, with groundbreaking technologies,” said McLaren F1 designer Peter Stevens. “It is a fantastic homage to that original design, and to the incredible race result achieved by the team in 1995 at one of the most difficult, and most challenging races in the world.”
All the extra elements have been styled as an homage to the McLaren F1 GTR chassis #01R car, and the car that McLaren will bring to Pebble Beach will wear the McLaren Orange paint as used by Bruce McLaren on his race cars in the 1950s.
