McLaren 570S Design Edition 1 Is Actually Saving Money
Published December 4, 2016
McLaren MSO division is probably the most active in the whole universe of the expensive personalisation divisions of all manufacturers. They crafted many fascinating cars over a short period of time and they do not intend to stop just yet. This is their latest effort – the 570S Design Edition 1. There will be five of the „Design Edition“ cars in total each of which will probably be painted differently. The one on the show is finished in red, or as McLaren would say Vermillion Red. Other hues are as follow: Onyx Black, Storm Grey, Ventura Orange and Silica White.
Now, while the package may be the MSO work, it seems that McLaren does not want to market it that way. This is in fact a value oriented package. In a supercar! Yeah, we know what you think, but paying $10,320 extra for the Design Edition could potentially save a whole lot more. The Design Edition is not all about the paint choice. It includes diamond cut, five-spoke alloys, red calipers, cool black exhaust finish and a bit of exclusivity in the cabin as well. That means Alcantara, Red Nappa leather and grey stitching. It looks quite striking, you have to agree.
As it turns out, one could simply chose all these features from the catalog and tell McLaren to make it. However, revealing an all new edition makes more sense. People should come looking for it. Now, they haven’t changed anything about the performance or about the drivetrain. continues with the 3.8-liter V8 with 570hp. Now, McLaren dubbed the car as a sports car, but its performance says another story. It can hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. It won’t stop accelerating until it reaches 204 mph and it has a curb weight of only 3,186 lbs. With a DCT (double clutch transmission), the thing surely has some serious potential. After all, McLaren had to produce a softer and a bit slower version of it – to prove to people they can actually live with it. Awesome.
While some reported the Design Edition may be limited to 5 units, we wouldn’t be surprised if McLaren sold as much of them as they can. After all, there are financial gains here. Apparently.
