For April Fools' Day, McLaren built a 570GT covered in feathers.

The feathers are each 7 centimeters long and have carbon fiber veins.

There are some 10,000 feathers on this car, not that I spent all afternoon counting or anything.

McLaren claims the hand-applied finish takes about 300 hours to complete, which I would not doubt.

Imagine having a job where you spend three weeks assembling an April Fools' Day joke. Sounds pretty great.
