One owner, two custom-built McLarens by MSO – life is too unfair


McLaren will soon be delivering two unique McLarens, built to the owner’s specific liking courtesy of McLaren Special Operations (MSO). They’re called the MSO R Coupe and MSO R Spider – the latest of the ever-increasing custom-built McLarens where customers get to work closely with MSO on the custom specifications of the car.

Based on the 675 LT model, both the cars which share the same exterior, interior and mechanical specifications, are finished in Liquid Silver – the Coupe in Satin and the Spider in gloss finish – topped off with a carbon fibre central stripe.

Both also come with identical twin-element rear wings, with front dive planes to further enhance aerodynamic performance. Most of the body parts – the bumper, bonnet, louvered fenders, roof scoop are all MSO Visual Carbon Fiber (VCF) components.

The exclusive MSO R branding is extended to the side skirts, sill panels, rocker panels and plenum. Both the bespoke McLarens are fitted with 5-spoke wheels, finished in Satin Black on the Coupe and Gloss Black on the Spider.

If you thought the exterior stands out from any other McLaren you’ve seen, the interior will prove you even more incorrect. The cabin is decked out with Alcantara trims as they’re finished with black and red stitching.

The upper and lower section of the steering wheel is made of carbon fibre, matched with black Alcantara grips. Even the switches on it are built to that one lucky owner’s liking – with carbon fibre bezels.

Now to the juicy bits – horsepower figures! The 3.8-litre V8 engines have had their heads and exhaust ports hand-polished, for an output of 679 hp and up to 700 Nm of torque. The exhaust system features a crossover design, ending with titanium tail pipes.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
