McLaren 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection Lands in China

Only five examples will be offered

Enter the dragon—or rather you can enter this bespoke McLaren 570GT through its dragon-painted door. The McLaren 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection was unleashed in Beijing at the Auto China 2018 show this week. Only five examples are available.

McLaren Special Operations teamed up with Chinese fashion designer Ziming Yang, aka Mr. Cabbeen, to create this scorching set of wheels.

Granted, you can probably pick up a 570GT MSO Black Collection model and add your own dragons and paint the wheels gold, but it won't look as cool as this beauty.

Aside from the hand-painted dragon door inserts in Gloss Speedline Gold, the car is bathed in MSO Bespoke Obsidian Black paint. It also has 15-spoke GT wheels and golden brake calipers.

"McLaren Special Operations is dedicated to providing customers with tailored choices that offer them almost endless personalization alternatives," said Ansar Ali, MSO managing director, in a statement.

"As a fusion of contemporary British design style and Chinese classic art elements, the 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection was created to satisfy Chinese customers' desire for individualization and is further evidence of the growing interest in MSO services in the China market."

Power remain the same: a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8 engine with 562 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The rear luggage deck sports a gold embroidered dragon by Mr. Cabbeen and is sewn by Kang Huifang, a preserver of the art of Chao Embroidery, we are told. Inside you'll find carbon sill covers, plenty of Alcantara, and more golden dragons.

Pricing hasn't been announced, but since Black Collection GTs start at $251,000 and only 100 were made, this limited edition of five should cost quite a bit more.

The show must go on, as they say, and so that’s exactly what organizers of the much-loved annual Tokyo Auto Salon did, taking the 3-day event that usually happens in Chiba’s Makuhari Messe convention center and translating it (metaphorically, not literally; it was still largely in Japanese) into both streaming video and 3D.

Super Street: Anytime we talk about a vehicle prototype, the overwhelming response, once some of the initial smoke has cleared (and people are done cursing out the manufacturer and demanding that their design team be fired immediately), centers heavily on claims that the production car will look nothing like the demo car. In some cases,

You know the name Joel Tan (@jt_built) from his wildly popular SR20DET-swapped, ‘40s-era Willy’s Jeep that mingles among the top of Super Street’s most popular feature cars of all time, and we expect his 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R and Toyota Trueno of the same birth year will also have a lasting impression. Both cars feature

The “most powerful 3-cylinder in the world,” applied to Toyota’s much talked about GR Yaris still sounds a little strange when you hear it, but you can’t deny the nasty 250+hp and over 260 lb-ft. of torque that are delivered through an eager AWD system, all packed into a relatively lightweight (by modern hatchback standards)

As if to pour a little salt into the wound that the hottest hatch in ages, the AWD Toyota GR Yaris, is not being brought to North America, the interwebs has begun to conspire against us by teasing us with modified versions from some of the biggest tuners in the biz. In December, those sneak
