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.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock. The Nurburgring serves as a standard by which most automakers set their sights. It arms internet debate specialists with numbers and comparisons by

It’s safe to say that Angel Pena, owner of this supercharged 2008 Acura TSX, has a “type.” Having been enamored with Acura’s entry-level sedan ever since it was first introduced, he knew right away he’d get his hands on one, and eventually, he did just that. Today, a decade later, he’s moved on to his
