McLaren MSO R Coupe, Spider Were Created For One Lucky Customer

McLaren reveal the MSO R twins – cxustom LT and LT Spider

"An MSO Personal Commission is the highest level of partnership between a customer and McLaren Special Operations, undertaken to design, develop and create unique interpretations of McLaren cars, expertly tailored to meet the exact requirements of the owner". These 675LT-based cars are called the MSO R Coupe and MSO R Spider, created for one customer who clearly felt both Longtail models were lacking a certain something. Unveiled during the weekend of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 2012, the X-1 was produced for an anonymous buyer, which is not unusual for a personal commission. McLaren Special Operations is now seeing an increasing number of customers enquiring about bespoke and unique cars. Both interior and exterior run the same silver/red/black colour scheme, but the Coupe is finished in satin, the Spider in gloss.

The front bumper and bonnet are MSO exclusive parts, as too are the roof scoop, rear deck and louvered wings. Unbelievable how bright pink can make a carbon central stripe, giant rear wing and dive planes look quite sensible.

Other personalisation touches include Delta Red pinstripes, an MSO-branded key and a "dedication" plaque marking the two cars out a unique pair. Even the 5-spoke black wheels share the satin and gloss finishes.

Lashings of red-stitched Alcantara trim the tactile surfaces and combine with carbonfirbe on the steering wheel. Both cars are powered by McLaren M838TL 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Switches are in gloss black and vent mechanisms are satin black, with bezels in carbon fibre.

The mid-mounted unit also blows through exhaust ports that have been hand-polished and join to a titanium exhaust, helping to boost power output to 679bhp - up from 666bhp in the now-discontinued 675LT. Today, McLaren announced that one customer is about to take home a almost identical pair of cars completely tailored to his tastes. Furthermore, the MSO R cars receive a bespoke Iris screen, instrument display and shift lights, the latter presumably questioning why you're travelling so fast in something so valuable.
