While the range of colours and materials are limited only by the owner’s imagination, McLaren’s Colour and Material design team has come up with three key collections, in order to inspire and get the 106 deposit-holders started with speccing up their Speedtail.
The first one is called ‘Urbane’, is a collection of three themes. One theme is ‘Stratosphere’ (featured photo), which sees the Speedtail finished in gloss 1K full visual carbon fibre with the contour pack, which is designed to accentuate the highlights of the car’s aerodynamic bodywork. The badging is crafted in platinum with TPT carbon inlay.
The Stratosphere’s cool-hued cabin blends the metallic light blue driver seat with light grey passenger seats. Completing the looks are navy painted edge with navy contrast stitch and brushed light blue anodised aluminium brightwork.
The second collection is called ‘Visionary’, and one of the themes is ‘Astral’, inspired by the UK’s wealth of nautical heritage, apparently. The exterior is finished in orange with silver pinstripe, gloss 1K visual carbon fibre and white gold 18 carat with TPT inlay badging.
The interiors of the Astral are dominated by timeless navy blue, including nubuck navy passenger seats and full aniline leather navy driver’s seat, Nebular quilt and digital print on nubuck navy leather upper trim.
The third collection is called ‘Dynamic’. One of the themes is ‘Bloodline’, distinguished by a burst of red on the exterior, with gloss black diamond-cut wheels featuring a light copper edge and silver brake calipers.
Inside, the driver seat is contrasted in full aniline red, whilst passengers sit on lightweight semi-aniline white seats. Accentuating the athletic theme, the steering wheel clasp, paddle shifters, window and door bezel surround are highlighted in TPT carbon quartz white.
In all these collections, the body and interior panels can be finished in satin 1K or gloss 1K with interwoven gold visual carbon fibre or anodised aluminium, contouring and pinstriping to accentuate the elegant flow of the bodywork. Interior options include electro-chromatic glazing tints that remove the need for sun visors, nubuck and aniline leather, TPT carbon control surfaces and white gold 18 carat and TPT carbon badging.
As always, the owners will have access to McLaren Special Operations (MSO) services as well.
As a result of meticulous study of colours, forms and textures by our design team, finding inspiration in areas that are uncharted in automotive design, we believe that we will achieve this with the look and feel of each individual Speedtail. Whilst only 106 customer cars will be built, it is important that each one is unique, so this tailored collection is quite simply, like no other – as is the McLaren Speedtail itself. – Jo Lewis, Head of Colour and Material Design.
