McLaren has unveiled a carbon-fibre-laden special edition 650S Spider, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the inaugural Can-Am racing season and will be releasing just 50 models worldwide to reflect this incredible history. From 1967 to 1971, McLaren won five consecutive championships, so McLaren Special Operations designed this machine as homage to their golden age of motorsport.

The modern-day version features a carbon-fiber retractable hard top – the first time this has been used on the supercar – as well as a carbon-fiber hood. Unique alloys are inspired by the 60’s racers with gloss-black spokes, a diamond cut rim and titanium bolts.

Other unique touches on the special edition 650s Spider include carbon-fiber louvered front wings and a new quad-exit stainless-steel exhaust housed in a new visual carbon-fiber rear grille.

Pricing for the limited run starts at a reasonable $390,000.
