Launch edition cars are limited in spec and color From # 401 onwards you can spec your own, including all color options.

Thanks, Declan. Interesting there's not a "new" red color offered in the launch cars! Doesn't mean other colors won't look great, it's just that I am a sucker for red McLarens. Perhaps red doesn't "work" with new design quite as well as the others and/or this is a perfect opportunity to show-off the new colors along with the new design.

As always: in the eye of the beholder. Can't wait for *these* eyes to behold this Thursday!!!!!!!!

Most of the things that I have written above have been tongued by Asia-Pacific, which covers Korea, Japan, China(Incd HK), Taiwan, and etcs. One thing for sure is that there will be two price increases in Asia-Pacific region. One thing to add is that the new silver is just an awesome color that is really hard to describe. Fabulous looking silver that I have never seen anywhere else. It looks matte and flat but got metallic light blue and clay-like grey tint to it. So cool....

Every MCs but P1/HS/600LT
Few horses and etcs in the basement but mostly in covers

BTW,






Mclaren had spent significant time and effort to the exhaust sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Once above 3~4k RPM, Mclaren claims that the exhaust sound will be more F1-like than any other car.
I have no clue is this is BS or true, but he smiled and said that one of the biggest complaint was exhaust note, so they have listened.

Mclaren exhaust sound is going to be awesome from 3-4k rpm. The mclaren guy smiled and said that one of the biggest complaint was the exhaust sound and they have LISTENED. The issue has been addressed on the new 4.0L and claims that 720s will have the exhaust note close to F1 cars. Believe it or Not........But I seriously do hope that this is true~!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully he didn't mean the current turbo F1 cars.

First of all, I think the new car will be stunning in red. And with the launch colors all having new names and the poor "configurator" they had, I wouldn't rule out a red for the launch editions. It's still quite confusing.

There is a new red for launch - I was discussing it with one of the McL guys at the preview on 2nd Feb. I only saw it on his iPad but its similar to Volcano but perhaps a bit brighter - he said it looked better in lower light. It was on the Performance version not sure if its available on all 3 configurations.

One of the leaked spy shots was of a red car, albeit you could barely see the car. Easy to tell that there will be a new shade of red on offer. Here is the pic @KenU

No worries, Nicklin. Thanks for trying to help sort the "red" out for me. Appreciate it!
