The new version of Road & Track is all about bigger stories, more ambitious ideas, and the kind of stuff you won't get from any other outlet. Every issue has to feel special, which starts with the cover. Gone are the newsstand-oriented text designs and the constant need to have the month's news on the front. Instead, we get to experiment with novel ideas. Like, say, having a McLaren 765LT custom painted specifically for our cover.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

See, while you may assume that the flame-painted 765LT on the cover of Volume 3 was a Photoshop job, that's not really our game. That issue was us paying respects to the custom scene that fuels and expands the world of interesting cars. Faking it doesn't convey that respect. Instead, McLaren offered to let us have the fine folks at Galpin Auto Sports custom paint one of its 765LTs. And if the review in that issue has you lusting for a 765LT, you now have a chance to own our favorite one.

The actual cover car has now popped up for sale from Euro Car of Orange County, California. It's got 2000 miles, tons of MSO options, and more clout than any other 765LT. It's a one-of-one job, the flagship of an issue we're extremely proud of. And given the complexity of the paintwork, I can't imagine there will be any imitations. Pricing, though, is steep. Euro Car wants $539,888, which hopefully includes a copy of the issue.
