There’s more than a year left until the first McLaren Speedtail rolls off assembly lines. Whereas for those who have ordered one that might seem quite a long time, for McLaren it’s a period of high-intensity work, long hours and a lot of sweat to meet the deadline.
With only a few days left to go of the year, the Brits announced they have invited all 106 Speedtail reservation holders to share their thoughts and chip in their ideas so none of the 106 cars to be made resemble each other.

To help these people make the decision, McLaren offers three different design collections, each with several of its own unique themes. These are to serve as a starting point in what is to become one of the most exclusive line of cars in the world.

The three design collections – Urbane, Visionary and Dynamic - mostly target colors and materials but offer the possibility of personalization to the tiniest of detail, from body and interior panels finishes to badges made of 18 carats white gold or TPT carbon.

"As a result of meticulous study of colours, forms and textures by our design team, finding inspiration in areas that are uncharted in automotive design, we believe that we will achieve this with the look and feel of each individual Speedtail,” said in a statement Jo Lewis, McLaren head of color and material design.

“Whilst only 106 customer cars will be built, it is important that each one is unique, so this tailored collection is quite simply, like no other – as is the McLaren Speedtail itself.”

Each of the 106 Speedtails will sell for £1.75 million plus taxes. Aside for the personalization options, the car comes with a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain that makes it the fastest McLaren ever built, topping at 403 kph (250mph).

The 1,050 combined PS of the powertrain allow the car to reach speeds of 300 kph (186 mph) from a standstill in 12.8 seconds, way faster than the F1 that it is meant to honor.
