  • McLaren 720S Stealth by MSO

    Different is better in the world of supercars, and McLaren Special Operations lets buyers do just that. This McLaren 720S "Stealth" was commissioned by McLaren London, which enlisted MSO's Bespoke services expertise to create a car inspired by the 1995 Le Mans-winning McLaren F1 GTR. McLaren revealed the car on Sunday. The exterior paintwork predominantly features an MSO Defined Sarthe Gray color, though Vermillion Red accents highlight many of the 720S's lines and offer a striking contrast. A group of craftsmen and craftswomen spent nearly 200 hours applying the accents. It's one of many...

The F40 was also the last vehicle to earn the personal stamp of...

  • 2018 McLaren 570S Spider

    In Hales Corners, Wisconsin, last Saturday night a 14-year-old boy named Sam reached over and pushed down on his mom’s knee to get the family’s Chrysler Town & Country moving. Her foot went to the floor, the Chrysler Pentastar V-6 perked up, and the van accelerated at a modest clip. “Meh, it’s just not the same,” Sam said. As a McLaren, that is. Minutes earlier, I had taken Sam for a ride in a 2018 McLaren 570S Spider. I accelerated at a brisk pace onto the freeway, drove at a whopping 30 mph in a couple roundabouts, and kicked the tail out in a corner. It...
