McLaren seems to have endless "special" models. Today I'm providing my take on McLaren's special models, and I'm going to explain why I think McLaren has too many special cars -- and I'll explain why this is a problem.

McLaren doesn't build cars for speculation. I honestly do not think they care about that. They built the F1 to be the greatest expression of what THEY view a car to be, what it should be. A vision informed by their founder before his untimely death. Bruce McLaren was not Preston Tucker, nor was he Henry Ford, or even a Karl Benz or Rene Panhard. He was a born racer, who made it all the way to highest levels as a racer. It is not about what a car looks, or how exclusive it is, or building some Apple style cult bullshit up around the brand. It is about what the car FEELS like, and about what it CAN DO. The GT is a bit of stretch....it is not one... and the layout will inform it's functionality, and feel, and it will not be that of a true GT car like say, Aston Martin, make. But then again... it is probably not really meant to. It is probably just a 'easy' version of the 570. A car meant to make concessions to the octogenarian country club golfer looking for something which can make him look and feel like he's driving a Lamborghini, but is actually much much easier and less murderous to drive than one. McLaren, I suspect, want the people who drive it, and feel special, because of what it does, to be the people who buy McLarens. Not the people who want to feel special because of how rare, or sexy it is. More, that seems to be working for them, so what's it matter if they are not exclusive enough for some, and rich old f*cks who buy cars for status, or style, not capabilities and excitement, laugh at them. They're making money, and building something they love building and so it doesnt matter. There seems to be enough people with money who are also petrol heads, and love their cars because how driving, not looking at, them makes them feel to keep them afloat, that is all that matters.

I knew every McLaren up until the Senna then I lost track. I think McLaren should take that 4L V8 they love so much and make a front engined car.

Doug is 100% right. I've been feeling this way for years. I see McLarens everywhere. I feel like there's a new one every year and it look largely the same.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I've got a couple cents I may as well contribute. I think McLaren has a bigger issue on its hands. It's more or less common knowledge that McLaren was in some financial trouble a few years ago. From the perspective of an automotive and business fan, McLaren is a little tough to admire. Adding to your points, there's just too much to follow. I like Lamborghini and Porsche because they are straightforward. I think McLaren loses prospective buyers on the notion that there's just too much to track. I also appreciate the vehicles, but I would never want to own one. Rarity and "specialness" aside, so many McLarens seem to have a "but." It's a great car BUT there's a good chance the wiring will give you problems. It's a good car BUT the transmission acts up. It's a fun car BUT it might catch on fire. Some are quick to argue that that's just to be expected with these niche, low-production, often hand-built supercars. This is absolutely true to a certain extent, but brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini are miles ahead of where they were at the turn of the century. It seems like where some brands focused on internal quality, McLaren has focused on remaining on the cutting edge vs. creating a balance between competitive raw performance capabilities and establishing a track record of reliability. It's like McLaren read all the "I can make a Honda Civic just as fast with half the money" comments from over the years and made that approach their business model. In layman's terms, I think the bigger issue is McLaren is still in trouble. I don't think they've got a fever and the only cure is more models. I think making these arguably minimal changes to existing platforms could be a last ditch effort by McLaren to stay alive by pinching the pennies needed to create special, while charging more. Considering the Uber-special cars like the Senna and Sabre, I think McLaren hopes their customers don't drive the cars that often. Regardless of the individual circumstances, every Senna that caught on fire is a bad look for the company. McLaren assuredly understands they don't rank the highest in reliability, but I think they're taking a unique approach to solving the problem. In this day and age with a LVlocalr and media outlet lurking around every corner, there is no hiding and hoping issues go away. I think McLaren should (or should have) accept their flaws, disclose their way forward with the public, and focus on proving to the automotive world they can master a handful of models and stand shoulder to shoulder with giants, not as the production underdog with the old racing pedigree, but as a company looking towards the future with products that can take the heat.

Just to remind that McLaren also had a car called 688, just a little more “special” than 675LT...and now guess nobody even knows it anymore...McLaren truely screw up their lineup, it was such a potential supercar brand

Wrong most of those cars are not produced anymore. Now its Arturo basmodell 720S Topmodell in regular linup 765LT 720s special Edition before the bew generation top modell comes out like a Lambo SV or SVJ And then there are the special Modells Senna (also the GTR Version that is track only) Speedtail Elva Sabre Not so different from other supercar companies Aston has the Valkyrie Valhalla Speedster DB5 remake All the bond and F1 special editions.... And Also Vanquish DBS DBX As normal cars Ferrari also has a lot of cars including the sf90 the Monzas and so on...

Most of recent AM special do feel special. Valkyire for example is design by the same guy who made a lot of championship winning cars from Indy to F1 the latter of which is his spotlight. (ironically also Mclaren too.) So that edition is very special especially when it's said design from that guy to be the closest to F1 which that wording would be actually not as far fetch as the others claim that. When it comes from one of the best F1 designers so his claims do hold weight. Ferrari SF90 isn't even a special edition. Yes it has a lettering of one. Thing is though from whatever info is on it. The car isn't some limited edition piece and is more "unlimited production" as in Ferrari will sell as much as the market is willing to buy it. That's not even close to a special edition production in definition a Special edition when Ferrari is talking making as much as it is ordered. Especially when u talking Ferrari special editions. Monza is special edition yes, but it's tribute to their history and shows where Ferrari is going. And it's very much rare to see a Ferrari speedster.

I see this video and start laughing thinking about Pagani.... 10 years ago Pagani said it would be making the LAST Zonda special... Last year they still released a new one... They literally only made two models (Zonda and Huayra) and milked the living SHIT out of them!!!. They still use the same cheap Mercedes twin turbo V12 that's 20 years old!!! Yes 20!!! They overprice their cars into ridiculous levels and stupid millionaires still buy them even though they are paying millions for a different body panels on a 20 year old car!! At least McLaren makes their own engines and the models are different and brand new technology!!

The problem is Brand devaluation which Mclaren are doing. To us mere cheap mortals those two parts hold true. To the actual guys who buy these expensive piece of kits it is not good. Cause it will be worry that Mclaren will keep on devaluing their cars and Branding to the point non don't want their cars. That's the true and ultimate market of which Ferrari have cornered.

I mean, hey ARE beautiful, don't get me wrong, but when it seems like all you review lately are multi-million dollar exotics/hypercars/supercars that your average viewer will never have a snowball's chance in Hell of ever being able to afford, we do start to get quite sick of it, & it gets VERY old after a while

Doug, your assumption is that they are building these cars for the U.S. market, but they are building it for the world market. And, places like Dubai (might be their biggest market) thrive on exclusivity and NOT having a car like someone else. Having 58 versions of the same car is attractive because they are "different" than their neighbor's car.

You absolutely hit the nail on the head with this video. I’ve felt the same way for years - I get totally lost in their lineup. If everything is special, nothing is! In my opinion, things went downhill as soon as they introduced the 650S - a car that had mismatched styling front to rear and a car which made their flagship P1 look like a base model.
