679bhp McLaren MSO R coupe and Spider revealed

Melba Vasquez | 12 October, 2017, 20:59

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

McLaren doesn't release pricing for its bespoke models, but given that just two of these exist in completely bespoke form, the figure for each will far surpass the £261,555 that was asked for the discontinued 675LT. Both cars sit on five-spoke wheels; the coupé's are finished in satin black, while the Spider's are gloss black.

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. The carbonfibre central stripe adds a bit of drama to the otherwise subdued Liquid Silver colour scheme, while the roof scoop, dive plains and pronounced rear-wing are references to Le Mans GT class racers. Primarily in black with red stitching, the theme is reversed for the seats, which are red with black stitching and feature an MSO R logo embroidered in black on the headrest.

Lashings of red-stitched Alcantara trim the tactile surfaces and combine with carbonfirbe on the steering wheel. Switches are in gloss black and vent mechanisms are satin black, with bezels in carbon fibre.

This MSO Personal Commission did not stop at visual and design changes. Today, McLaren announced that one customer is about to take home a almost identical pair of cars completely tailored to his tastes.

The auto is based on the old Super Series McLaren structure - 12C, 650S and 675LT - and runs the most powerful iteration of their 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. A bespoke instrument cluster display with shift lights is also present. The power boost comes in part from a new "crossover" exhaust system, which features a longer pipe length for better air flow.
