McLaren Churns Out Matching Pair Of Unique MSO R Models

The pair appear to be based on the McLaren 675LT and 675LT Spider, respectively.

One very lucky customer will soon be taking delivery of two unique McLaren models, dubbed the MSO R Coupe and Spider. Two bespoke McLaren supercars, developed just for you.

One wealthy individual has approached McLaren and asked the Woking-based carmaker's MSO (McLaren Special Operations) department to build them not one, but two bespoke cars: one a coupe and one a folding metal hardtop spyder. There's a lot of carbon, with the bumper, bonnet, roof scoop, rear deck and mirror arms all treated to the material. Both interior and exterior run the same silver/red/black colour scheme, but the Coupe is finished in satin, the Spider in gloss. Finished in black, gloss and satin, to match the respective cars, the five-spoke wheels mimic the 675LT's as well.

Other details include Delta Red pinstripes on the front splitter and side blades, while the splitter, side skirts, sill panels, rocker panels and plenum cover feature the MSO R branding. Incredible how bright pink can make a carbon central stripe, giant rear wing and dive planes look quite sensible.

Even more distinctive than the exterior of these cars, is their interior, where both cabins boast Alcantara trim material throughout and red seats with black stitching, plus the MSO R logo embroidered in black on the headrests. They feature McLaren's 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, which has been tuned to produce 679bhp. The steering wheel has a carbon fibre upper and lower, with black Alcantara® grips and a Delta Red centring stripe. The final visual touch is a dedication plaque on each auto identifying them as McLarens created to an MSO Personal Commission, taking them from being a rare vehicle to a unique one - or in this case, a unique matched pair. There are some bespoke touches on the instrument cluster that show the MSO R logo, along with a plaque in the door of each auto. The power boost comes in part from a new "crossover" exhaust system, which features a longer pipe length for better air flow.
