A Spider's Swan Song

TGR Staff

The final doze McLaren 600LT Spiders have arrived for the North American market, each sporting a unique Segestria Borealis design theme created by the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team. According to McLaren, the details are inspired by one of Europe's largest venomous spiders. The Segestria Florentina, better known as the Cellar Spider, which is all black with the exception of two stripes of iridescent green along the spider's fangs.

The green fangs of the spider are mimicked in the Napier Green stripes that run from the nose of the car to the top-exit exhausts at the tail. The Borealis black paint hides a deep green, purple, and claret undertones under shifting light. In addition to the color-shifting paint and stripes, each car gets MSO Bespoke Napier Green brake calipers, 10-spoke lightweight gloss black forged wheels, a web motif in Napier Green on the rear wing and door mirrors, and pinstripe detailing on front fenders, side skirts, and rear diffuser vanes. The package also includes the MSO Clubsport Pack, which features super-lightweight carbon-fiber racing seats, a carbon-fiber interior upgrade, lightweight titanium wheel bolts, and carbon-fiber front fender louvers.

The McLaren 600LT Spider Segestria Borealis by MSO is a singular example of the visionary, creative approach to the artistry of McLaren Special Operations. Like any 600LT, it is a purposeful, single-minded and menacing creation, but in this instance, all the power and performance of this supercar is expressed in a unique and striking design scheme that fits with the desire of many McLaren owners to personalize their cars to make them truly their own.
