Design Features of Bespoke “Comet Fade” McLaren 600LT
McLaren is a brand that offers a high level of exclusivity for exotic sports car shoppers — and recently, the British automaker took this exclusivity to a new level when it built a one-off bespoke “Comet Fade” McLaren 600LT for a lucky customer in Canada.
Coriolis Blend Paint Application for the Comet Fade McLaren 600LT
The “Comet Fade” name was given to the custom 600LT because it features a unique color scheme, in which a bright blue hue at the front half of the car fades into a black hue towards the car’s rear section, like an icy blue comet. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) took 120 hours to complete the multi-step application process for the paint. It refers to it as the Coriolis Blend, which combines MSO Bespoke Cerulean Blue, MSO Defined Burton Blue, and MSO Bespoke Atlantic Blue.
