The McLaren 600LT Spider's run has come to an end. The company has allocated 12 of them for the U.S. and 11 of them are currently spoken for.

The final run features a unique McLaren Special Operations (MSO) design that was inspired by a venomous arachnid, Segestria Florentina, earning them the official name McLaren 600LT Spider Segestria Borealis by MSO. McLaren has given the models the nickname "Spider Spider".

The design theme features twin Napier Green stripes that run from front to back that designers say represent the green fangs of the venomous spider. Its black body is represented by the Borealis black MSO Defined paint. The paint is designed to shimmer with deep green, purple and claret undertones as the position of the light around the car changes.

Further design features include MSO Bespoke Napier Green brake calipers; 10-spoke lightweight forged wheels in gloss black; a web motif in Napier Green on the rear wing and door mirrors, and pinstripe detailing on front fender, side skirt, and rear diffuser vanes.

The car is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 that produces 592 bhp and 457 pound-feet of torque. It can get from zero to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

It has a forged aluminum double-wishbone suspension system with recalibrated dampers, firmer engine mounts and a lightweight braking system. It rides on bespoke Pirelli P- Zero Trofeo R tires.

The models all come standard with the MSO Clubsport Pack, which includes Super Lightweight carbon fiber racing seats, a carbon fiber interior upgrade, lightweight titanium wheel bolts and MSO Defined Gloss Visual carbon fiber front fender louvres all feature as standard.

The car's cabin continues the bold accents with MSO Bespoke bright green stitching and webbing design on the Alcantara trimmed racing seats, unique headrest embroidery, steering wheel stitching, and 12 o'clock highlight mark.

McLaren has also given the car a Bowers and Wilkins 12-speaker sound system, McLaren Track Telemetry, rearview camera, parking sensors, volumetric alarm upgrade, and vehicle lift to allow the nose of the car to be raised when required.

McLaren is pricing the model at $275,500. The remaining model is now available for purchase.

The throttle is a twist-grip system, and a rear disc brake helps slow things down. Though it may seem childish, this is no kids toy. It can carry a max weight of up to 154 pounds, and is rated for ages 18 and up.
