This might be the best-looking McLaren Speedtail ever
The paintwork alone took 12 weeks to complete
I might be wrong because it's already been a couple of years but I seem to recall that the Speedtail wasn't unanimously well-received and liked. It was styled by aerodynamic principles, taking the idea of form-follows-function to a whole new level and as a result, the rear end looks longer than the front end and it's wide and low.
McLaren tried every trick in the book to make this as aerodynamically efficient as possible, and they also gave it the same three-seat layout as the F1 to make a point. As if to say, we make fast cars and this is what we can do. They only planned 106 units and this, commissioned by McLaren Beverly Hills, is a tribute to the first 1992 McLaren F1 Test Mules as well as the original Speedtail prototype and, just like said prototypes, is named 'Albert'.
The paint that MSO (McLaren Special Operations) created is designed to symbolise the car's aerodynamic prowess and it's made using a blend of Magnesium Silver - like the original McLaren F1 road car as shown at the 1992 Monaco GP - and Ueno Grey, the same colour as the F1 GTR that won Le Mans in 1995. MSO said it took them around 12 weeks to complete the job.
The engine was left untouched, which means that under the bonnet beats the same 1,070-hp hybrid powertrain as any other Speedtail, which is actually a good thing because this is the fastest road legal McLaren ever made, with a top speed of 250 mph and a 0-186 time of just 12.8 seconds . The ‘Albert’ Speedtail will debut at Sunset GT, a luxury cars and coffee-style event hosted by O'Gara (a luxury car showroom) in Beverly Hills.
