McLaren has a long history of building impressive, race-winning cars, not the least of which were the cars it built for the Can-Am Challenge Cup. In fact, McLaren cars won five consecutive Can-Am championships between 1967 and 1971. To pay tribute to this impressive heritage, the company has announced a Can-Am limited edition of its 650S Spyder sports car.

The changes to this very special McLaren run deeper than just its livery though. The 650S Can-Am has been bestowed with lovely bits of exposed carbon fiber throughout. The modern woven material can be seen on the hood, the rear wing, rear grille and on a unique retractable hard top. Other upgrades include custom lightweight forged alloy wheels with spokes inspired by the classic Can-Am racers, along with carbon ceramic brakes, and a quad-port stainless exhaust system.

As is the case with all 650S models, the 650S Can-Am gets a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that pushes out an eye-popping 650 hp, and 500 lb-ft. of torque, capable of launching the vehicle from 0-to-62 mph in just 3 seconds, and a top speed of 204 mph.

McLaren will produce just 50 of the 650S Can-Am, with deliveries starting in Spring 2016, with prices starting at $334,500.
