McLaren commissions one-of-a-kind 570S Spider for Valentine’s Day

To help mark Valentine’s Day, McLaren has shown off a unique 570S Spider painted in Vermillion Red, with a “seductive” black and red interior.

The Woking-based manufacturer commissioned the car specifically for the day of romance, taking advantage of its various divisions to create a unique one-off car. Vermillion Red came from the firm’s ‘Elite’ colour palette, with the cabin being a ‘By McLaren Designer Sport Interior’.

The supercar also features carbon-fibre touches, and McLaren Special Operations (MSO) elements such as an Apex Red leather-trimmed steering wheel and Indian Red seatbelts. It also has red brake callipers and personalised ‘Colour Edition’ Pirelli P-Zero tyres with colour coding.

Other than those special romantic touches, the 570S Spider remains the same as the standard car, with LED front and rear lights, a 10-inch TFT display and hand-stitched leather.

Under the bonnet, the 570S Spider is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that can accelerate from 0-60mph in just three seconds and onto a top speed of 204mph with the roof closed – or 196mph with the roof open.

There has been no word on pricing for this unique model, although McLaren says this example has already been accounted for. MSO allows for McLaren customers to specify their car exactly the way they want it, though, so there is nothing stopping buyers from creating a similarly distinctive model.

That said, you’ll need deep pockets to be able to pay the £164,750 list price for the 570S Spider, not mentioning the many tens-of-thousands of pounds for the supercar maker’s costly upgrades.

While there’s no word on whether McLaren commissioned the car itself, or if someone ordered it specifically for their other half, we would love for the latter to be the case.
