McLaren Releases Three Themes For The Speedtail
The Speedtail is indeed one of most special monikers on McLaren’s lineup. With exactly 106 examples of the iteration that will exit the production ramps by 2020, McLaren is now trying to help the said customers juice their creative muscles by releasing a small collection to showcase customization themes on the car.
The McLaren Speedtail gained popularity as the most flexible model for customization and while there are many ways to design the car according to your fancies, the company showed six photos of company-curated examples. The themes “Stratosphere”, “Astral” and “Bloodline” are a part of a collection in the Colours and Materials Inspiration Story that the company provided the customers to help visualise the appearance of their car.
As a part of the Urbane collection, the ‘Stratosphere’ theme is described as ‘discerning and refined’. This can be seen inside the cabin which calls for cool-hued materials including a metallic light blue driver’s seat that is flanked by two light grey passenger seats.
Apart from this, the cabin carries a rather airy feeling due to the brushed light blue anodized aluminium bright-work along with navy-blue painted edges and contrast stitching that accent the light blue and grey.
The ‘Astral’ theme is a part of the company’s Visionary collection that it calls ‘striking, moody and opulent’. This theme calls for warm-hued colours outside as well as inside the cabin. McLaren claims that this is a nod to England’s nautical history, especially with the navy blue interior. Outside, the car features an orange paint scheme with silver pinstripe. Interestingly, its badges are finished in carbon fibre and 18-carat white gold.
Inside the cabin, there is nubuck leather passenger seats and a driver’s seat that is upholstered in full aniline leather, all done in navy. The upper portions of the cabin are trimmed in a bespoke Nebular quilted and digital print nubuck leather.
Finally, the ‘Bloodline’ draws its inspiration from the Dynamic collection and is considered to be ‘modern, bold, sporty and futuristic’. The bloodline suggestively gets full aniline red leather, with white semi-aniline leather for the passenger seats. Additionally, the steering wheel trim, paddle shifters, and window and door bezel surrounds are finished in carbon quartz.
