McLaren wants to be a part of your Lunar New Year celebration by showing off a slick new MSO custom one-off created in honor of the holiday. Though I’m sure only very few people would celebrate the new year by buying a supercar.
Anyway, MSO or “McLaren Special Operations” teamed up with Chinese fashion designer Mr. Cabbeen to create a Lunar New Year edition 570GT MSO.
At first glace it may seem like the Cabbeen edition MSO is pretty subtle. From afar it just looks like a black 570GT with a dragon decal. Though you’d be slightly wrong.
The dragon design on both doors isn’t a decal but is actually hand painted. If you dig the design or not you have to admit that hand painting something that detailed on a car is impressive.
The only thing that is likely to be more impressive on this car is the price. It seems that this is definitely a one-of-one car so if you want it be prepared to dig deep.

The McLaren 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection made its north American debut at the annual Lunar New Year celebration hosted by the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce’s Asian Business Connection Committee on Friday, February 1. The Collection of five bespoke McLaren 570GTs were originally unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show in China, and this additional, sixth and final 570GT was created specifically to celebrate the Lunar New Year in Los Angeles and is available exclusively through McLaren Beverly Hills.
McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and Chinese fashion designer and entrepreneur, Mr. Cabbeen, joined forces to create the 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection, featuring distinctive Chinese design elements. Finished in MSO Bespoke Obsidian Black paint complemented by a dragon design that has been hand-painted in Gloss Speedline Gold on both door inserts, the 570GT MSO Cabbeen Collection also features a new 15-Spoke GT wheel, which together with the brake calipers are also finished in Gloss Speedline Gold.
MSO Defined Carbon Sill Covers grace the inside of the cabin, with unique vivid sculptural dragons embroidered in gold on the Alcantara® Centre Front Tunnel and Rear Luggage Deck. Designed by Mr. Cabbeen to elevate the Cabbeen Collection cars to a new level of interior luxury, the dragon motifs are an example of Chao Embroidery, which is recognized as part of China’s cultural heritage.
This specific 570GT has a special VIN ending in 888888 to commemorate the Lunar New Year: Year of the Pig. The car is available for purchase exclusively at McLaren Beverly Hills.
