McLaren dresses 570S Spider in Vermillion Red for V-Day

LONDON: For the incurably romantic, McLaren has commissioned a special one-of-a-kind 570S Spider Vermillion Red paint job just for Valentine's Day that's going on sale in the United States on Feb 14 and it's already been spoken for.

The hand-built two-seater supercar from Wokin, England, features a combination of Apex Red and Jet Black Nappa Leathers as well as Carbon Black Alcantara trim material before being complemented by carbon fibre components on the doors and centre tunnel for its cabin.

There are more individualised parts by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), which includes carbon fibre extended sill finishers, Indian Red seatbelts and a steering wheel with Apex Red leather trim completing the St Valentine’s Day look inside the car.


The sophisticated cabin blends exceptional levels of craftsmanship, quality and technology, hand-stitched leathers sitting side-by-side with a 10-inch TFT main instrument cluster and centrally-mounted, 7.0-inch IRIS touchscreen through which climate control and infotainment are managed.

Outside, its red for the brake calipers and personalised ‘Color Edition’ P ZERO tyres from Pirelli.


The aluminium bodywork shrink-wrapped over the mechanical package gives the 570S Spider an athletic appearance, with instantly recognisable McLaren styling cues such as a teardrop-shaped cabin; unique-in-class dihedral doors; and distinctive front and rear LED lighting and daytime running lights in distinct Speedmark badge.

The two-piece retractable hardtop is constructed of lightweight composite panels that are significantly more weather- and fade-resistant than fabric.

The roof is in optional Dark Palladium grey rather than body colour that can be stowed beneath the carbon fibre tonneau cover thanks to the ingenuity of the MSO Defined that allows  the convertible roof top be electrically operated and can be opened or closed in 15 seconds while at vehicle speeds of up to 40kph.

Furthermore, the one-off 570S Spider features numerous exterior carbon fibre body enhancements from the MSO Defined range of options, including door inserts, front splitter, rear deck, rear bumper and rear spoiler.

While the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine allows the 570S Spider to accelerate from 0 to 100kph in 3.2 seconds, it has has a top speed of 330kph or 1317kph with the roof down.

With the roof down, a glazed wind deflector can be electrically closed or lowered at the push of a button, providing further versatility by reducing wind-buffeting or by allowing additional sound and fresh air into the cabin with just the glass lowered.
