With McLaren celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the British carmaker has decided to produce a commemorative model to celebrate \"five decades of race-winning technology and expertise.\"

According to McLaren Automotive, the production will be strictly limited to a maximum of 100 units globally, split between 50 examples of the 12C and 50 of the 12C Spider.

The limited-edition models will reportedly feature a number of bespoke styling and specification enhancements that have been produced by McLaren Special Operations, the division responsible for the delivery of bespoke projects, in conjunction with the McLaren Automotive design team.

Some of the revisions done are a remodeled and aerodynamically optimized front bumper, a carbon-fiber lower section of the front bumper that frames the air intakes, and a front floor that\'s made from race-derived carbon kevlar. Above the bumper, a black McLaren F1-inspired heritage badge--previously only available to MSO clients--is fitted on the hood.

Inside the cabin, the cars are upholstered with a full leather upgrade, with the subtle branding on the carbon-fiber door sill panel and floor mats complemented by an anniversary dedication plate on the driver\'s door.

The limited-edition models are also fitted with carbon-ceramic brakes, bespoke McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels finished in Satin Black, and carbon-fiber turning vanes as standard.

Each of the McLaren 50th anniversary models will come with a monogrammed black-and-silver car cover, a limited-edition key, a carbon-fiber presentation key box, and a specially commissioned print signed by McLaren Automotive design director Frank Stephenson.
