My Drive in the MOST EXTREME Spec McLaren Sabre!

For a crazy and extreme spec on a hypercar, look no further than this McLaren Sabre! With a flip paint colour scheme and plenty of unique details, it's a wild thing which ever way you look at it. And then comes the experience getting behind the wheel...
There are only 15 McLaren Sabres in total, all within the USA as the car was built to United States homologation standards as a commission by the customers with MSO. The sales process for customers offered a fixed price regardless of specification leading to some extremely personalised options as a result, with this car probably topping them all.
The body is a split between the Colourstream paintwork and exposed carbon fibre, finished with pinstripes in a slightly different flip shade to give a unique effect. The exposed carbon itself is then furthered by containing inscriptions in opposite directions to the weave as well as the bright green calipers contrasting the paint. On the inside, the main body colour is brought in as a tint to the lacquer on areas such as the steering wheel, along with the seat pinstripes, gas struts and more finished to match.
Mechanically it's powered by an 835hp 4.0l twin turbo V8 with 800Nm torque, and boasts being the fastest 2 seater McLaren ever due to slightly more slipper aerodynamics than the Senna despite a slightly heavier weight. While the US homologation requirement allows design elements like a sharper leading edge to the front splitter, the car is lacking electric mirrors and has an exceptionally awkward key required for opening and closing the trickle charger port.
Starting from the garages that also contain the Koenigsegg Regera, Bugatti Chiron and Ferrari 812 Superfast we're heading on a short drive to the second garage with a Pagani Huayra Roadster BC, Ferrari LaFerrari and Pagani Imola. Being spoiled to now drive my second Sabre of the 15 cars, it confirms my impression that it's very much what the Senna 'should have been' as a slightly more sanitised road car while still very much at the extreme end of the spectrum.
Thanks to the owner for the opportunity to film with this car, and to my friend Mike @shinmikeyin for the introduction.
Thanks for watching, Tim

  • When it comes to wild specifications of hypercars, this McLaren Sabre is right up there! It's one of only 15 in the world and sure does stand out. How would you spec your Sabre? Would you go for this type of flip paint?

  • It's like Mclaren tried to incorporate an Apollo IE into this design and it ended up being an attrocious mess of a car, stylistically. For me anyhow, I'm sure some like it. After all, there's a lid for every trash can.

  • Shmee, I love you man and mclaren is my fav brand. But honestly, I just don’t get what u see in this car visually. I can’t help but think, it doesn’t look good whatsoever. It’s literally a senntail It’s such a let down. There is way to much going on. What are your thoughts?

  • The more I see of this car the more I love it! To me it always looked like a cool manta ray on wheels. That paint color just fits the car. WOW! Also seriously cool because many people will never see even 1 of these cars in person and Shmee has driven 2 out of the 15 made world wide! Shmee just has it like that :) Impressive and props to the owners who actually use these cars. Most impressive and that is seriously a DREAM garage.

  • There had better be a way to turn off that garbage feature which cuts the engine at a full stop. I'd hand it right back to McLaren and tell them, "no thanks." Especially with the rest of the rides in the owner's garage...they wouldn't be missing out by ditching the McLaren.

  • btw those with a keen eye will recognize that hood ("bonnet" in Shmee speak) is totally the forthcoming MERC/AMG PROJECT ONE. cant say who had it first but i DO recall that styling famously used back on the mid 2000's Mercedes SLR McLaren which technically wore BOTH names, but this was when Mercedes also owned a stake in the company.

  • green calipers gotta go, not sure what happened there, but the McLaren nod to the Midnight Purple III (R34 GTR) is EPIC...!!! its an unexpected mashup of JDM and European Hypercar, and it works.
