Now that McLaren’s mid-range model has been revealed, the British race team turned automaker has just released a new app allowing potential customers and day dreamers alike to customize the open-top version of the supercar with the McLaren 650S Design Studio tablet app.

With the app, users can customize different features including paint, wheel styles, and exterior carbon fiber as well as interior colors. After users have completed the customization process, the app allows users to choose a background for the finished supercar. Available backgrounds include Times Square in New York at night, the marina in Monaco, Shanghai’s city center at dusk or the car can be set in a background of the user’s choice including their own driveway.

Powered by a 641-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 with 500 lb-ft of torque mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the automaker claims the 650S can accelerate to 62 mph in 3.0 seconds and finish the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds at 139 mph. Top speed is estimated at 207 mph. McLaren says the 650S’ aerodynamics have been optimized for accessible performance and driver engagement.

Users can also share their completed cars and backgrounds on social media using the hashtag #mymclaren. McLaren will select and post the best submitted images on its official website. The McLaren 650S Design Studio tablet app is available for iOS products through the Apple App Store and for Android devices through the app store and can be found by typing in "McLaren 650S."
