Hi, I'm Albert. And I'm a McLaren Speedtail

Meet Albert, a McLaren Special Operations (MSO) designed McLaren Speedtail. He's a bit of a crazy homage because he's more or less an homage to himself. Albert was the name of the first test prototype that McLaren sent onto the road three years ago. The designation originates from the McLaren F1, which was developed in an office on Albert Drive in Woking, England.

McLaren Speedtail prototype with 720S nose

The Albert prototype for the McLaren Speedtail was used in 2018 to test the central seating position, cockpit ergonomics and operation of the side cameras. The car still had the nose of a McLaren 720S and was 'disguised' with a black-white-grey wrap with all kinds of air lines. That gear is now reflected on this unique Speedtail developed by MSO. Although the color scheme here is not applied with foil, but actually sprayed.

Albert's injection took six weeks

Albert walked off the production line like a 'normal' McLaren Speedtail and then spent twelve weeks at MSO. The masking of the bodywork took two weeks (about 2 kilometers of wafer-thin masking tape went through), the spraying itself six weeks. It then took them another four weeks at McLaren to let the paint dry and reassemble the super sports car.

Speedtail is 1070 hp strong and reaches 403 km/h

The McLaren Speedtail's 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 is aided by a hybrid system and kicks it up to 1070 hp and 1150 Nm. According to McLaren, the latest Super Series goes from standstill to 300 km/h in less than 13 seconds. The Speedtail has a top speed of 403 km/h, which makes it no faster than the Bugatti Chiron, which runs in the electronic limiter at 420 km/h.
