540C, 570S and 570GT models can now be fitted with parts to customise their car, including carbonfibre accessories and interior trim

McLaren has released a series of parts and accessories for its Sports Series models, the 540C, 570S and 570GT.

The carbonfibre pieces are designed to protect the cars as well as offer more personalisation options to owners.

Trim pieces for both the interior and exterior of the models are available, as well as floor mats, car covers and skidplates for the front diffuser. Coloured seatbelts and new alloy wheel designs add to the aesthetic options.

Despite being announced as a retrofit option, the parts are also optional on new models, and are fitted by McLaren dealers, where they are also available to existing owners.

The carbonfibre parts are claimed to save weight over the standard-issue parts they replace, and were developed by McLaren’s Special Operations (MSO) division. 

Our Verdict

McLaren 540C

It might be the entry-level McLaren, but the 540C feels no less complete or exhilarating on the road than the firm's brilliant 570S

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
