At the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) – the personalisation arm of the McLaren Cars – will debut special versions of its P1 hypercar and the recently launched MSO 650S Spider.
The McLaren P1 MSO features, on public display for the first time, features a host of bespoke options that subtly distinguish the car from a standard P1. At the front, silver finishing to the aluminium radiator grilles sit below the gloss carbon fibre bumper. Above this, a McLaren Orange speedmark adorns the bonnet.
The bodywork is finished in exclusive Stirling Grey, with McLaren Orange accents. Orange brake callipers are mounted behind body-coloured alloy wheels and 24-carat gold heat shields, similar to those used in Formula One, further earmark the MSO P1.
The interior has been tailored with extensive use of carbon fibre and Alcantara, with the upholstery used on the bespoke MSO steering wheel. Lightweight carbon shell racing seats are fitted with a four-point harness.
MSO will also be showcasing a one-off version of the MSO 650S Spider, this is one of just 50 examples with unique styling upgrades, including extensive satin-finished carbon fibre.
The exterior has been finished in Cerulean Blue. This special colour contrasts with the satin carbon fibre detailing seen on the front bumper, side air intakes, and on the centre section of the rear bumper and large MSO rear diffuser. The exterior design is complemented with the use of chrome on the exhaust finishers and the 10-spoke lightweight alloy wheels.
The cabin is upholstered with carbon black leather with a contrasting blue stitch throughout, extending to the steering wheel, dash and doors. The seats also feature a McLaren speedmark embroidered on the headrests and continue with the blue contrast stitch on the outer edges. Opening the dihedral doors reveals the MSO branded carbonfibre sill panel, highlighting the lightweight MonoCell chassis, while satin lacquered carbonfibre highlights pervade the driver and passenger zones.
