McLaren Returns to Pebble Beach with One-Off 570S

McLaren Returns to Pebble Beach with One-Off 570S

Get ready for a classic showing of some excellent cars later this month in California during the 65th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. McLaren is the latest entry to the party, joining a host of other elite automakers, including Ferrari, to show off some major eye candy.

McLaren will be displaying two one-offs of its new 570S Coupé that will highlight the customization. It will also showcase its limited 675LT and 650S Le Mans models.

One of the 570S custom cars to grace the concept cars lawn at Concours d’Elegance will be outfitted in a unique Mauvine Blue paint. This rich purple color is complemented with a Carbon Black interior that features matching purple accents in the seats and on the steering wheel. The other one-off 570S featured on the lawn will have unique, but fittingly titled, Ventura Orange paint. It will also show off the special options offered on the 570S.

A 675LT will also be there representing the most lightweight and track focused road legal model in the Super Series. Unfortunately, for drivers interested in taking one home it is a limited to only 500 production models worldwide and each is already spoken for.  

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of its epic victory in Le Mans, a 650S Le Mans will also be on display. This sporty car features special design cues from the McLaren F1 GTR chassis #01R that claimed the the now legendary victory in France. It is also even more exclusive than the 675LT, with a limited production run of 50 models, and yes, as you may have guessed, each one is already sold.

McLaren debuted the 570S earlier this year at the New York International Auto Show. It is the first car in its new Sports Series and features a design inspired by the McLaren Formula 1 race cars. This is reflected in the shrink-wrapped dihedral contoured doors that allow cool air to flow to the engine.

That engine is a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8. It is paired to seven-speed SSG transmission and is responsible for the name of the car by producing 570PS, which in English comes out to 562 horsepower. It also produces 442 pound-feett of torque.

Customizability is offered with selection of interior Nappa leather and carbon fiber color options that are designed to complement the variety of exterior paint colors.

Stay tuned for pricing info along with the release date.
