McLaren 600LT Configurator Invites You To Have Fun
McLaren has launched the online configurator for the new 600LT supercar. Launched at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed back in July, the track-prepped Sports Series supercar brings back the Long Tail heritage for McLaren. The 600LT is lighter and more powerful than the 570S. It’s powered by the same twin-turbo, 3.8-liter, V-8 that’s used throughout the entire Sports Series lineup. The 600LT’s V-8 engine is tuned to produce 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, 30 horsepower and 14 pound-feet of torque more than the 570S. Now that the supercar’s online configurator is live, it’s time to go have some fun with it.
Ford Ranger Configurator Exposes Pricing of $24,000 to $34,000
Unveiled at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford Ranger is set to return to American dealerships after a very long absence. However, pricing and some important information remained a mystery. Now, the truck’s configurator showed up earlier than expected on Ford’s official website, revealing cab options and specific pricing. I say earlier than expected because Ford has taken the page down shortly after it made headlines.
BMW M2 Competition Configurator Has Surprisingly Few Options
Unveiled in 2015, the BMW M2 became the spiritual successor to the 1M Coupe and gained notoriety for being a closer rendition to the original M3 than the modern M4. Come 2018 and BMW unveiled the M2 Competition, a more powerful version of the coupe.
While Competition-branded cars are usually upgrades to the regular M model, the M2 Competition is actually a replacement for the standard M2, which was discontinued. Upgrades inside and out are rather mild, but the Competition variant stands out for featuring the engine from the bigger M4 under the hood. Available to order starting this month, the M2 Competition can now be customized through the company’s online configurator. Let’s have a closer look at the options.

Design the 600LT of Your Dreams in The New McLaren Configurator
The McLaren 600LT is yet another feather in the cap for the British automaker. As if it doesn’t have enough mouth-watering performance cars already, McLaren unveiled the 600LT with the purpose of filling out its entry-level Sports Series lineup with its own track-focused beauty. It looks the part of a super sports car, has the most power out of all McLaren Sports Series, and it’s configured for the thrills of the racetrack. Unfortunately, all that acclaim comes with the downside of us having little chance of owning one in our lifetimes. So what’s the best way to deal with that reality? Play around with the new McLaren 600LT online configurator, and imagine what our 600LTs could look like. It’s only in the virtual world, but like most things that we literally can’t get our hands on, we’ll take anything we can get.
Polestar 1 Online Configurator - How We Spec’d It
The Polestar 1 is arguably one of the most highly anticipated cars in the business today. The performance coupe checks a lot of boxes on what you want out of the first offering from Volvo’s former performance division. Needless to say, the Polestar 1 has our attention. That much was clear when the coupe’s online configurator went live. We couldn’t wait to play around with it, and when we got the chance to do it, well, this happened.
2019 Lincoln Nautilus Configurator - How We’d Spec It
The Lincoln Nautilus is one of the shiny new SUVs that are out on the market these days. Naturally, when a new model with so much promise comes out, a lot of people will be curious to see what it has to offer. That includes me, so I did what anybody in his right frame of mind would do. I jumped straight into the Nautilus’ new online configurator to do some work on my virtual SUV.

2019 Aston Martin DBS Superleggera - How We’d Spec It
2019 Ford Mustang - How We’d Spec It
The 2019 Ford Mustang’s online configurator is like a candy store for fans of the muscle car. It comes with a wealth of customization choices that made the whole process of creating our own version an exercise in patience and perseverance. But I got my way through it, largely because the whole thing was fun and exciting. It didn’t feel like work as much as it felt like seeing my creation come to life, at least in the virtual world. Even better, the Mustang is actually affordable for regular folks like us, so who knows, someone here might end up going home with a real one.
2019 BMW 8 Series Configurator - How We’d Spec It
The highly anticipated debut of the 2019 BMW 8 Series finally happened this week, and as has been the case recently, the luxury sedan’s online configurator quickly followed. Online configurators have been fun exercises for us. We get to create our own version of the new model and spec it right down to the most specific of details. Far too often, our creations end up differing from another, but that’s precisely the purpose of these configurators. You create what you want regardless of the opinions of other people. In the end, you live by your creation, and you show it off to the rest of the world. And so it is, our spec of the 2019 BMW 8 Series.
2019 Volvo S60 Configurator: How We’d Spec It
The Volvo S60’s arrival is a huge deal in the premium sedan segment. The all-new model is touted as a legitimate threat to shake up the establishment, and from the looks of it, the S60 has the chops to make a lot of noise. But before we start saving up for the S60, we’re being given the opportunity to create the version of the sedan that best suits us, all thanks to the sedan’s online configurator. As expected, I went ahead and played around with it.
The 2019 BMW X5’s Online Configurator is Going to Take Some Getting Used To
The BMW X5 has arrived and as expected with models of its status, so too has its online configurator. We’ve gotten adept at these online configurators to the point that it’s become common for us to start working on our own versions of the just-released model just so we have an excuse to play around with it. This time, I’m taking the controls of the BMW X5 online configurator to see what I can do to create the X5 of my dreams. You don’t have to like what I end up creating, but that’s the beauty of this exercise. If you don’t like what I did, you can go make your own.
Spec your own Rolls-Royce Cullinan in the fanciest online configurator ever!
The Rolls-Royce Cullinan finally arrived in May 2018 after many years of teasers and speculation to take its place at the top of the SUV market as the most expensive and luxurious hauler ever created. Priced from a whopping $325,000, the Cullinan is probably selling like hotcakes for a really expensive vehicle. The SUV can now be configured on the company’s official website, and the online experience is just as bespoke as the Cullinan itself.
And even though most of us can’t afford one, we can at least configure the Cullinan of our dreams until we can actually place an order.
How would you spec your Audi RS5?
It took Audi quite a few years to offer a competitor for the BMW 4 Series, previously known as the 3 Series Coupe, as the A5 made its debut back in 2007. The performance-spec RS5 took another three years to arrive in showrooms as a competitor for the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63. With a brand-new A5 launched in 2016, an updated RS5 was finally introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Now that the German coupe made its way to the United States, you can configure the RS5 of your dreams from the comfort of your home.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS Configurator is Online and Boy Does it Have Some Crazy Options
There was a time when online configurators for new cars took a few days (or even weeks) to become available. That’s a thing of past now, especially when talking about sports cars. Performance vehicles from Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini don’t spend too much time in showrooms, and it’s exactly why customers are given the opportunity to customize their ride as soon as the first official details are out. It’s been just a few hours since the updated Porsche 911 GT3 RS was launched and you can already configure your dream model. Ready to have some fun?
How We’d Spec It: 2019 Ram 1500
Ram has made a massive splash in the half-ton pickup segment with its all-new 2019 Ram 1500. It debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show in January and is expected to arrive in showrooms by the end of the first quarter. That’s an impressively quick turn-around time as this processes normally takes six months to a year with most vehicles. Nevertheless, we’re restless to get our hands on the pickup.
In the meantime, we’re left dreaming of the ideal build configuration for an average American. Modern pickups offer literally thousands of possible cab, bed, engine, and trim combinations. Here, we’re shooting for that middle-class family who might tow a small boat to the lake on the weekends, haul sports equipment in the bed, and carry those 2.5 kids to their various extracurricular actives – all while staying within a reasonable budget.

Lamborghini Fires Up Urus Configurator; Time to Have Some Fun!
Launched in December 2017, the Lamborghini Urus is as fresh as they get. And it’s quite impressive too. Not only the first SUV made by Lambo (the LM002 was a pickup truck) and the company’s first turbocharged production model, the Urus is also the world’s fastest crossover, boasting a top speed of 190 mph. Mind-boggling to say the least! It’s also pretty quick as well, needing only 3.6 seconds to hit 62 mph. That’s quickest than the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S! Finally, it’s the most powerful production SUV, besting the Bentley Bentayga by a whopping 50 horsepower. But it’s also very expensive at $200,000, not counting the many options you can have. Speaking of which, Lamborghini just fired up the vehicle’s online configurator, so if you’re planning to place an order, you can choose your options in just a few minutes.
The configurator doesn’t give access to pricing, but it lists every single option available. This is actually something new, as previous configurators had scarce information and you had to go to a dealer to find out more. Now you can go beyond the usual exterior colors and interior upholstery and pick between various trims, carpets, contrast stitching, and a ton of technology and convenience features. It’s actually a nice way to spend a few minutes on this car even if you don’t have over $200K in your bank account.

The Rezvani Tank Can Get Crazy Expensive!
You probably remember the Rezvani Tank, the modified Jeep Wrangler Unlimited put together by this California-based company known for high-performance supercars. We brought news of the Tank back in early October, including its $178,000 starting price. Well, Rezvani has launched its online configurator for the tank, complete with outlandish options like three levels of bulletproofing and hand-stitched leather floor mats. Well, it turns out the Tank can get a whole lot more expensive than we originally thought.
The 2018 Rezvani Tank can cost upwards of $305,000!
That’s right – this Wrangler-turned-monster can cost more than a quarter-million dollars. So, what jacks the price up? Quite a bit, actually. Let’s tear down the build sheet and see what options Rezvani is offering. It’s actually pretty interesting. But for starters, remember this Wrangler has been fitted with a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 making near 500 horsepower and rides on upgraded axles with beefier suspension parts and 37-inch mud-terrain tires.

Configure the Bentley Continental GT of Your Dreams
After nearly seven years on the market, the second-generation Continental GT is getting ready to enter the history books and make way for a redesigned grand tourer. Built on a new platform and with a much lighter aluminum body, the third-gen Conti GT also brings new technology and a revised drivetrain into dealerships. And as it is the case with all new Bentley products, it features new technology and a large amount of new luxury items. There’s new wood veneer, new display, and a rotating infotainment screen, just a name a few, on top of the state-of-the-art interior design and the powerful W-12 engine.
The new grand tourer has yet to make a proper auto show debut, which is scheduled to take place at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show, but Bentley has already launched an online configurator for the car. There aren’t any prices available and you can’t browse through all the Mulliner options, but it has what it takes to help you create your next Continental GT. And if you can’t afford one, it’s an entertaining way to play with all the color, upholstery, and equipment options you can get in one of the most luxurious vehicles available as of 2017. Check it out below.
