McLaren 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection revealed at Beijing Motor Show

New MSO tweaked McLaren arrives with bespoke designs from Chinese fashion house Mr. Cabbeen

McLaren has revealed a new bespoke 570GT at the Beijing Motor Show, created by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) in collaboration with Chinese fashion designer Ziming Yang, known professionally as Mr. Cabbeen.

Called the 570GT Cabbeen Collection, a production run of five examples of the car is planned, boasting what McLaren claims are “distinctive Chinese classic design elements”.  It’s the latest in a long series of unique MSO modified McLarens.

The most obvious modifications are the dragon motifs on the doors, hidden in the air vents. Contrasting with the Obsidian Black metallic paint, the dragons are hand painted in gold, and match up with new 15-spoke alloy wheels, also finished in the same Speedline Gold colour.

The gold dragon motifs are found in the cabin too. One is found on the Alcantara centre console, embroidered into the material beneath the infotainment system, while another one is found on the rear luggage deck.

No mechanical revisions are made – the 570GT Cabbeen Collection cars receive purely visual changes. As such, the same 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged McLaren power unit producing 562bhp and 600Nm of torque is mounted behind the driver and passenger but ahead of the rear axle, sending power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.
