Chinese fashion designer Mr. Cabbeen and McLaren Automotive have teamed up to create a new collection of five McLaren 570GT sports cars. Unveiled in Beijing at the Auto China 2018 show, these new cars are meant to demonstrate a specific philosophy: “Designed in China, made in the UK.”
Each of the cars within the Cabbeen Collection come finished in MSO Bespoke Obsidian Black paint. Contrasting against this dark paint is a hand-painted dragon that was created out of Gloss Speedline Gold paint on each door panel. One other exterior modification is the addition of new 15-spoke GT wheels that sit in front of Gloss Speedline Gold brake calipers.
Inside, Mr. Cabbeen had dragons embroidered in gold on the Alcantara Center Front Tunnel and Rear Luggage Deck. Kang Huifang, the Director of the Professional Embroidery Committee of China’s Arts and Crafts Institute, was responsible for sewing each of these dragons.
“McLaren Special Operations is dedicated to providing customers with tailored choices that offer them almost endless personalization alternatives,” commented, Ansar Ali, Managing Director, McLaren Special Operations. “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.”
