The McLaren 570S can now be ordered in a choice of five Design Edition versions, which add colour combinations and trim packages picked by McLaren’s own designers to the Sports Series model.

The first Design Edition (pictured) applies a Vermillion Red paint job, five-spoke alloy wheels, a stealth exhaust and red brake calipers to the exterior. Inside, it gets black Alcantara and red Nappa leather upholstery with contrasting grey stitching, a colour co-ordinated steering wheel and a McLaren branded leather sill.

The other four Design Editions come in Onyx Black, Storm Grey, Ventura Orange and Silica White, and each offers their own colour and trim combinations.

No changes are made to the rest of the car, so Design Editions are still powered by the 570S’s turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 engine that produces 562bhp and 443lb ft of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, enabling a 3.2sec 0-62mph sprint and a 204mph top speed.

Pricing for each 570S Design Edition starts at £151,750, £8500 more than the regular car. McLaren says that the Design Edition’s long list of standard features actually makes it cheaper than a regular car with the same options added.

Do they really need to special editions?

I do like thje colour combo though, I'd probably spec something similar

That Black engine cover always looks plain stupid. Why they didnt make is colour coordinated with the body or even see through plastic has always puzzled me. Looks stupid

If I wanted 'Mid Life Crisis Red' I'd buy a Ferrari. ANY other colour is fine for a McLaren.
