2016 McLaren 650S Spider Al Sahara 79 by MSO is White Gold Custom for Dubai Auto Show

McLaren Special Operations does a fantastic job of creating a sense of exclusivity and urgency with their custom models. Unlike the deeply unimpressive special Wraiths or Astons lately, MSO models appear to justify their time, effort and extra expense — to buyers and the wider car world alike.  Even though we know a 675LT Spider is coming next year, this 650S Al Sahara 79 makes clear that it is the hottest sub-P1 model in the lineup for the time being. This may explain the huge take rate for their services — especially in the Middle East. Nearly one in four …

2016 McLaren 540C Is New Smoothie Supercar With Road-Friendly Torque

McLaren just revealed its second model in the new entry-level range: the 540C. Along with the 570S, the McLaren Sport Series hopes to take a huge bite out of Porsche 911 Turbo sales with its advanced tech and hypercar brand. The 540C is a lightly tweaked version of the 570S with new nose detailing and a subtly tweaked diffuser around back. The main difference in the two cars is that the 540C will be slightly cheaper, and much more comfortable in everyday traffic. This comes from slightly more friendly tuning to the suspension and a remapped twin-turbo engine. This latest …

3.1s, 204MPH 2016 McLaren 570S Is Official! 60-Image Reveal With Tech Specs

The new McLaren 570S is official!  This most-affordable model is based on the same carbon-fiber chassis and twin-turbo engine as the P1 and 650S — yet promises to be priced below $200,000. Massive power and pace comes from a 570-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6TT with 30 percent original parts versus the 650S. The 62-mph sprint is quoted as 3.2-seconds, which makes this new Macca down just 80 ponies and less than half a second from its big brothers in the 650 range. Big news! The design is clearly from the same family gene pool, but with enough fresh details to be exciting …
