McLaren 570S Spider Design Edition models launched

'Curated' special editions highlight designers' ideal configurations

It's easy to be bewildered by the enormous range of colour, trim and feature options offered to buyers of the McLaren 570S Spider. Fortunately, the Surrey-based supercar maker claims to have made it easier to create your perfect specification with five curated 'Design Edition' models.

Having already been offered on the McLaren 570S coupe, the new additions to the range take the 570S Spider – McLaren's rival to the Ferrari 488 Spider and Lamborghini Huracan Spider convertibles – as their base. They present buyers with five 'themes' created by McLaren's design team and are claimed to 'complement each other to perfection'.

Starting off with special Silica White, Storm Grey, Vermillion Red, Onyx Black or Vega Blue body colours, each Design Edition then gets a complementary finish from the 'By McLaren' range to emphasise the Spider's sporty appeal or, if you prefer, its luxurious side.

The Onyx Black example in these images showcases 10-spoke forged alloy wheels with a 'Stealth' finish, surrounding brake calipers painted McLaren Orange with black McLaren logos. The interior is swathed in carbon black Alcantara suede and soft Nappa leather, with contrasting orange seat belts and stitching in the seats, dashboard and steering wheel. McLaren-branded leather sill finishers complete the look.

McLaren claims the Design Editions make financial sense, too, as they represent a saving compared to choosing the particular finishes individually. There's no need to stop at the curated specifications, either – there are plenty more personalisation options available to make it unlikely you'll ever park next to an identical car.

Available alongside the lightweight 570S Spider Track Pack, the Design Edition packages add between £8,100 and £10,700 to the 570S Spider's start price of £164,750. Orders are being taken now.
