Forget flowers and chocolates, someone actually commissioned a one-of-a-kind McLaren 570S Spider for Valentine’s Day.

The special McLaren 570S Spider features a vibrant Vermillion Red exterior from the McLaren Elite color palette, perfect for February 14. The British automaker said the supercar was commissioned in honor of Saint Valentine by an incurable romantic, who also matched the exterior with a red and black interior scheme.

Inside the cabin, there is a combination of Apex Red and Jet Black Nappa Leathers and Carbon Black Alcantara trim, complemented by carbon fiber components on the door and center tunnel. Indian Red seatbelts are a nice highlight, while a steering wheel with Apex Red leather trim completes the Valentine’s Day look inside.

Some subtle touches to the exterior include red brake calipers and personalized “Color Edition” P Zero tires from Pirelli.

Powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the 570S Spider goes zero-to-62 mph in 3.2 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 204 mph with the roof closed. With the roof lowered, top speed is capped at 196 mph.

Although this particular Valentine’s Day McLaren 570S Spider is already spoken for, it showcases what the automaker can do when it comes to personalizing a customer’s supercar. Maybe we’ll see a Halloween special later this year.
