McLaren’s Bespoke 600LT ‘Comet Fade’ Blends Three Colors For A More Striking Look

McLaren Special Operations has pumped out a number of limited editions over the years and the latest is based on the 600LT.

Dubbed the Comet Fade, the one-off model was commissioned by a long-time customer of McLaren Toronto and draws inspiration from the “brightness and speed of a comet.”

Given that comets are small and icy celestial bodies that produce a “visually distinctive signature fading from bright to dark,” the Special Operations team recreated this effect with a bespoke exterior that starts with Cerulean Blue, fades to Defined Burton Blue and finishes with Atlantic Blue. McLaren says this was a “painstaking multi-step process” which required 120 hours to complete.

Besides the special paint job, the car has been equipped with a visible carbon fiber roof scoop that pays tribute to the McLaren F1. The customer also ordered three different carbon fiber packages and this means the front splitter, side skirts, rear bumper, rear diffuser, rear spoiler, rear wing and mirror caps are all constructed from the lightweight material. Last but not least, the car rides on ultra-lightweight forged wheels which feature a gloss black finish that is contrasted by polished carbon ceramic brake calipers.

The special styling continues in the interior as the cabin is awash with blue accents which mimic those on the exterior. The model also has carbon fiber racing seats as well as carbon fiber interior trim.

Like the standard 600LT, the Comet Fade features a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces 592 hp (441 kW / 600 PS) and 457 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed SSG transmission which enables the car to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h).
