The McLaren 600LT is about to make its Pebble Beach Debut with this unique “Stealth” customization.

Let’s be honest: black is always a good color for your supercar. Combine that with as much carbon fiber accents as you possibly can, and the whole outfit just gives the car a menacing feel like it’s about to eat every other car on the road for lunch.

Which being a McLaren, it probably can.

We got our first good look at the McLaren 600LT at last month’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, but now the upcoming 600LT is coming to America where it will take a bow at the Pebble Beach Concept Lawn on August 26th. This car is less of a concept than a display of just how amazing McLaren’s MSO division can actually be.

First, the exterior is covered in Stealth Grey paint that’s just a shade lighter than black. It’s then finished with Matt Black and orange accents on all the aerodynamic features.

This 600LT uses as many of McLaren’s carbon fiber options as possible, which means quite a lot of the car is made out of carbon including the door mirrors, exterior door inserts, front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser, roof, and engine cover. Inside is the same ultra-lightweight carbon fiber racing seats as featured on the Senna, complete with 6-point racing harness.

Unique for this car is a carbon fiber roof scoop that harkens back to the original McLaren F1 Longtail--the same car that inspired McLaren’s “Longtail” tradition. It’s not just an aesthetic touch either--this is a real roof scoop that feeds air to the engine. It also serves as a handy mount for a telemetry camera.

On the inside, the roof scoops intake hoses are also made out of carbon fiber to match the rest of the car. This lowers the roof line slightly, but if you were a tall person you probably we’re going to fit into a McLaren anyway.

McLaren is quite proud of their little 570S upgrade, which now puts out 600 PS (591 hp) from its 3.8-L twin-turbo V8. We’re still not sure when it will go on sale, but you can register interest with McLaren to know right away when you can give them money.
